In Max Minghella’s 2019 directorial debut Teen Spirit, Elle Fanning is Violet Valenski, a shy girl on a mission to neon pop stardom. She’s got the voice, she’s got the look, and by the end of the film, she’s got the dream. Developed by studio BOND, the main-on-end sequence is an effervescent fuschia fantasia. Led by creative directors Bernard Crosland and Ben Andron with Krystal Sojourner on design and animation duties, the team manipulated stills and footage from the film and created original magazine covers to illustrate Violet’s meteoric rise to fame.
And if that heavenly melody pumping throughout seems familiar, perhaps it’s because it was prominently featured in another title sequence: the opening to Hackers (1995). English electronic duo Orbital’s celestial house track “Halcyon + on + on” was remixed for the film and features new vocals by — who else? — Violet Valenski.
