Stranger than Fiction Opening

Watching the movie titles in class today for some reason made me think of the opening to Stranger than Fiction, the Will Ferrell movie where he realizes that he's the character in a story and that there's a writer out there who is writing his life. The opening has some pretty cool motion graphics in it that start the movie off nicely.

The graphics remind me of a Video Copilot tutorial that explains how you can do something similar to the virtual computer display Tony Stark sees in his Iron Man helmet. The tutorial shows how you can make several windows and displays made of light that follow your head's movement in the video, and the numbers and calculations around Will Ferrell in this opening are very similar to that. I'm sure you could make something similar using both this opening and the Video Copilot tutorial as resources/references.
