New RONALDO Releases 9th November

Excited at the studio to see our titles we designed for Anthony Wonke’s new film RONALDO – out on worldwide release 9th November 2015.

From the makers of Senna and Amy, this 102 minute unprecedented access documentary gives an insight into the inner life story of one of the worlds greatest footballers. How he fought to get his son and his family out of poverty and to show the world he’s on this earth to be the best at football. Ronaldo takes the audiences on an intimate and revealing journey of what it’s like to live as an iconic athlete.

A huge delight for us to design all the main and end titles for the film, including all the captions and a great end roller. It was a real pleasure working with Anthony, producer Paul Martin and the films editor Stephen Ellis.

Starring a stellar cast including former ‘James Bond Pierce Brosnan, ‘Breaking Bad’ star Aaron Paul, Sam Neill, Tony Collette, Imogen Poots and Rosamund Pike. ‘A Long Way Down‘ is the fourth Hornby novel to be made into a film and we’re absolutely delighted, having created the title sequence for ‘High Fidelity‘, to announce that we have been awarded the titles for Pascal Chaumeil’s latest film.

A Long Way Down‘ has been produced by Academy Award nominees for ‘An Education‘ Finola Dwyer and Amanda Posey, through their company Wildgaze Films and has been financed by BBC Films and DCM Productions. Head of BBC Films Christine Langan commented:

Nick Hornby’s challenging yet heartwarming novel is safe in the hands of dynamic screenwriter Jack Thorne, dazzling director Pascal Chaumeil and accomplished producers, Finola Dwyer and Amanda Posey. The alchemy is further reflected in the wonderfully talented, funny and brilliant cast they have brought together for this highly original movie and we are extremely proud to be part of it.

We are really pleased to finally be seeing our titles air for the first time. Here’s the official trailer released by HBO to get your feet tapping.

Phil Spector was a pioneer of the 1960s girl-group sound with groups such as The Ronettes and The Crystals. He produced over 25 Top 40 hits in 1960-1965 and later worked with artists such as Ike and Tina Turner, John Lennon and George Harrison as well The Ramones and The Beatles. Having co-written “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin” with The Righteous Brothers, the song is listed by BMI as the song with the most U.S. airplay in the 20th Century.

Spector is currently serving a prison sentence of 19 years to life, having been convicted in 2009.

The main title sequence for ‘Riot on Redchurch Street‘ was completed a few weeks ago and we’re pleased to be able to share a few frames for you to see below. Director Trevor Miller is now with the film currently doing the rounds at this years AFM (American Film Market) event, which we wish him the very best with.

In addition to the titles, Producer Sean McLusky asked us to design and artwork the official poster. Being more than happy to be involved, we saw this as a great opportunity to maintain the grity identity we developed for the on-screen through to the off-screen marketing material.

We are really pleased with the result and were even more delighted when both Sean and Trevor emailed us, saying “That’s amazing, thank you very, very much for this, its perfect – you guys are ALWAYS FANTASTIC, we love it”.

We thought it would be nice to be able to share this with you all as well, so here it is… we hope you all like too.

Communication through movie titles…

…normally, the running of the front titles is a period during which the audience rustles popcorn, makes small talk with their neighbours, or simply explores their seat for long-range comfort.

When the movie itself begins, there is usually an initial ‘cold’ period.

However, a strong main title or sequence can be sufficiently provocative and entertaining to induce the audience to sit down and ‘look and listen’, because something is really happening and communicating with them on screen.

I believe at this moment it is possible to project a symbolic foretaste of what is to come, and to create a receptive atmosphere that will enable the movie to begin on a seamless and higher level of audience participation.

The end of the movie when the credits start is again another chance to graphically communicate and reintroduce the visual style, which is unique to each movie. Like a book cover has a front and back cover.
