Credit to you Sherlock…

January 11, 2010

Calligraphy, texture, paint splatters, texture, London *sigh*…seriously, fabulous. Saturday night, David and I braved the cold to head to the cinema to see Sherlock Holmes. Sadly their idea of our date night consisted of him sitting in the front row, and me sitting seven rows back. Somehow I don’t think the people in the rows in between would have enjoyed us sharing the popcorn. The date was rescheduled indefinitely…BUT THEN i spotted the movie’s end sequence on graphic-exchange, and am seriously excited to see it now. Rescheduled DEFINITELY. Anyone who made the decision to add illustrations, calligraphy and layers their end sequence (which is usually only viewed by the backs of peoples heads as they leave the theater) must have done well with the rest of the movie.

The sequence was designed by Prologue who have a fantastic portfolio…I recognized quite a few opening titles on their site and discovered a whole lot more. Their site/showreel is definitely worth from both a graphic and a movement perspective. I would love to be able to draw in this style, but I doubt it would have as much impact without the different stages. Now that you’ve seen the static shots, check it out insitu in this youtube video. Has anyone seen the movie yet, any thoughts?

You can see more about the Sherlock Holmes sequence at graphic-exchange, at Prologue…or view the movie site.

    I can’t wait, I always stay to watch the end sequence and the credits and am so annoyed by the people who stand up and leave at the very second the lights are turned on. Most of them are done so well these days! Some people even pack their stuff at those final -most important- moments of the movie!

      I was doing my best British tuts last night at the viewers standing in the way…what really got me was that people were standing up to leave, then realizing there was something interesting going on and stopping. AND STAYING STANDING…ughm hello, if you want to watch it don’t you think the people sitting behind you want to as well? Honestly….

    After official review, it it’s been decided by the courts that sitting 7 rows apart does not make a “Date Night” Unless rescheduled immediately, who knows the consequences.

      Eric, you may be pleased to know that date night rain date was officially held last night…and Sherlock Holmes was viewed! So whew, avoided consequences this time!
