Up in the Air

Up in the Air

2010 • Paramount Pictures
Dir. Jason Reitman

A high altitude main title sequence for Jason Reitman’s critically acclaimed third feature, starring George Clooney.

The sequence features aerial photography from across the country, carefully choreographed to Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings’ take on This Land is Your Land. It captures America’s abstract landscapes and, in a sense, the main character’s detachment from the world and people below. The typography harkens back to the glamorous, golden days of air travel.
