Up in the air opening titles

Buenos títulos de crédito para la nueva película de Jason Reitman con la música de Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings

The sequence ultimately depicts the world as Ryan (George Clooney) sees it: distant, abstract, and detached. Landmarks (like the St. Louis Arch) are visible in the sequence, but they blend into the scenery because of the high altitude of the photography. I love the aerial photography in this sequence, because it shows the world from a different point of view than we’re used to in films. It’s the view you see when you’re flying in a jet, where the world takes on a bit of an orthographic, Google-Earth-like 2D quality.
