DUCK Designs Titles for 'Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa'

Director and animator Jamie Caliri of production studio DUCK designed and animated the 02:18 title sequence for Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa, which features the voices of Ben Stiller, Chris Rock and Alec Baldwin.

"I Like to Move It," one of four songs from the film's soundtrack created by will.i.am of Black Eyed Peas, moves the action along while the film's whimsical characters shamelessly provide their modern dance interpretations.

Each film credit beckons a change in tribal-inspired backdrop and hilarious performance. The animation exhibits an almost 3D appeal, consequently engaging the audience.

About Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa
In the sequel to Madagascar, Alex, Marty, Melman, Gloria, King Julien, Maurice and the penguins and the chimps find themselves marooned on the distant shores of Madagascar. In the face of this obstacle, the New Yorkers have hatched a plan so crazy it just might work. With military precision, the penguins have repaired an old crashed plane—sort of. Once aloft, this unlikely crew stays airborne just long enough to make it to the wildest place of all—the vast plains of Africa, where the members of our zoo-raised crew encounter species of their own kind for the very first time. Africa seems like a great place ... but is it better than their Central Park home?
