Art of The Title: Juno

By: Garreth Smith and Jenny Lee

Excerpts from an interview with Garreth Smith

Many people think we developed a computer-based technique to produce the colored Xerox look. It was, in fact, created entirely by hand.

Each frame of her in the sequence was created using the following process:

  • The frame was printed on an Epson inkjet printer, in black and white, onto heavy weight matte paper
  • Using a ballpoint pen, we drew the black outline around Juno onto the print
  • The frame was Xeroxed
  • Then it was Xeroxed again for that extra degraded look
  • The double-Xeroxed frame was then hand-colored with color pencils
  • Finally, the colored image was cut out with scissors

Needless to say, this part took quite a while, but was an absolute joy to do. We held a couple of “cutting parties” where we invited a bunch of friends over to help us get through a bunch of frames.

Jenny and I did much of this part in our apartment. The floor was covered with paper debris. Our small dining room became the shot board wall which helped us track the progress of each shot. Netflix kept us company during the long hours.
