Sherlock Holmes: Title & End Credits

Speaking of the 2009 Sherlock Holmes movie (last post) –  I loved how they handled the beginning and closing credits.

From Art of the Title:
The sequence’s Creative Director, Danny Yount, is a self-taught Emmy-winning designer/director who produced the main titles for Six Feet Under and The Grid while at Digital Kitchen. He currently resides at Prologue Films and has created titles for Kiss Kiss Bang BangIron Man and RocknRolla.

How large was the production team, and how closely do you work with them?

We broke up into three separate teams with a total of about 14 people working around the clock. The end credit sequence required the most people by far, as there was so much detail in the illustration and transition work. The illustrations took a long time to make. I’m not sure if Jorge slept very much.

All for now – deadlines looming…
