Juno – the Intro Credits
In our interview with Jason Reitman about three weeks ago, we discussed the open credits work for Juno – here is what the filmmaker had to say about this intro and now you can rewatch that exact sequence.
“…were done by Shadowplay Studio who also did the opening credits for Thank You for Smoking. That was one of their first jobs. They did the credits of that movie in the living room of one of their mom's homes. Now they do all kind of work. It took five months to do these credits. They shoot Ellen Page with a high speed camera from different angles, then print out each frame, then run it through an old xerox machine to get it all crummy and then hand – drew each frame, rescanned it and then created stock motion with the computer and then the whole background. They cut leaves and photos and pasted it… it took forever. But it was worthy.”
