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.

Zaytoun titles go on-line at BUF in Paris

I arrived to a quiet Paris this morning in the middle of the holiday season, with the streets having been left mainly deserted of the usual traffic jams that one is a custom to in the French capital.

We are now in BUF putting the stuffing into the main title sequence for Zaytoun and I have noticed their 3D department do like a trophy cabinet as you can see!

I am here with the film’s director Eran Riklis and post production supervisor Michael Saxton for the on-line edit and I will try to avoid being added to the cabinet!

Paris rendezvous with Zaytoun’s Eran Riklis

Eran Riklis Zaytoun

Over the years, meeting with directors and editors in a cutting room for the first time, has always been a special time and place for me. It’s the real starting point in the creative process of developing a title sequence and also the defining point for both the editor and the director.

Yesterday was another one of those moments and a real joy for me to meet with Zaytoun’s Director Eran Riklis and Editor Hervé Schneid, who both had the look of tired joy etched on their faces.

For the last two days I have been in Boulevard Ney, Paris – one of fours homes in Paris and LA for CGI and effects company BUF.

BUF has been responsible for delivering world-class CG animated films. Which includes Dark Shadows, The Green Lantern, Thor and Total Recall. BUF is also the post-house for Zaytoun, where the editing suite is located and where I met with both Eran and Herve, along with Assistant Editor Melanie Bigeard and Post Production Supervisor Michael Saxton, to discuss our approved creative approach and arrange the next stages of production.

I’m now returning back to Soho today, where I’ll be attending a screening of the film with Eran at Molinare this Saturday, along with Producer Gareth Unwin.
