Being a die-hard fan all my life, I had always wanted to take on the Doctor Who title sequence as a project. So, with a new Doctor (Ncuti Gatwa) about to reboot the show, I thought I'd take the opportunity to do it. Creating everything from scratch, including diving into Cinema4D to create the TARDIS and logo, my small dream side project started.​​​​​​​ 
The bulk of the sequence was used using Maxon's TOA plugin. I created a diamond shaped vortex and flew a camera through it. The diamond concept came from the iconic logo that has recently been brought back by the BBC. Using a lot of cameras and the 3D space, I added my own nebulas and stars using plug-ins such as Video Copilot's Optical Flares and Saber. As well as Particular for stars and the regeneration energy logo entrance. There is no stock footage in the sequence, I wanted to make sure that every part of it was created by me. 
The biggest learning curve was using Cinema4D and Redshift, which I had previously only touched the basics of. I thought the build of the TARDIS and logo went very well, and I learnt a lot while doing it. Especially in texturing using nodes and the render settings.
