About Tulip Mania
Tulip Mania is the first economic bubble in human history. It was a period during the Dutch Golden Age when contract prices for some bulbs of the recently introduced and fashionable tulip reached extraordinarily high levels with the major acceleration starting in 1634 and then dramatically collapsing in February 1637. As a person with an economics background, I really like the allegory of this historical incident and think of what would have happened if this story is adapted into a film. 
I'd like to use the life of tulips as a metaphor of the greed of people. It starts as a little bulb and withers as the bubble bursts. I used a DSLR camera to shoot the time-lapse of a bunch of tulips, paired with the song "Unchained Melody" from Norah Jones to create how crazy the love (maniac) is.
Behind the Scenes
I did not shoot all of the footages in this title sequence. Some of them are from the YouTube video that I found. Here is the credits of the clips I used.
