Design company MK12 has been signed up to handle the main title sequence for the 22nd James Bond adventure, Quantum of Solace, according to recent reports.
The Kansas City design group, represented by The Ebeling Group, previously designed the intricate title sequences for Marc Forster’s two most recent films, 2007’s The Kite Runner and 2006’s Stranger Than Fiction.
Following up these two successful working collaborations, the Quantum of Solace director invited the group to come on board for the latest Bond film.
What is unclear at this point is the level of involvement series regular Daniel Kleinman will have with the title sequence. It may be that MK12 will be acting as the digital intermediate on the sequence (like company Framestore CFC was for 2006’s Casino Royale) and that Kleinman will still be handling the design of the titles.
Kleinman first became associated with the 007 series through his work on the Gladys Knight music video for 1989’s Licence to Kill. He then took over from Maurice Binder as main title designer and has contributed to all four of the Pierce Brosnan Bond films as well as Craig’s debut in Casino Royale.
