Hitman or Inside Out; The Two Most Different Foods

For my title sequence project I had a bunch of ideas, but ultimately narrowed it down to 2 styles I think I can pull off. The first film I might make a title sequence to is Hitman, that awful movie in 2007 (or the upcoming one next year, pick your poison) which was based off the video game of the same title. The route I would take is to make it a Saul Bass homage since he is the father of title sequences as we know them today. Hitman, or at least the game, emphasizes a lot about how your character, Agent 47, is just a number to The Organization. Every assassin has a barcode tattooed on the back of their head and I thought it would be fun/interesting to style an intro around that idea in the style of Saul Bass.

My second idea involved a Pixar movie, of course. Inside Out came to mind first since it is the newest film from the California-based animation studio. I would want to also, in a way, replicate Saul Bass' style, while also making it my own. SPOILER ALERT: There's a scene in the movie where 3 of the main characters enter Abstract Thought, a land where thoughts and ideas are broken down into four stages, I won't go into detail. Anyway, the style that the characters are created in this area of Riley's brain holds so much potential in motion graphics.

Let me know in the comments which one I should give a go. I can't decide for the life of me. Thanks!
