1. 'Quantum of Solace' – Official Blog Report #29

    By Devin Zydel on 2008-10-08

    The official Quantum of Solace blog has been updated today with two crew members from the 22nd James Bond 007 film: title sequence directors Ben Randatz and Tim Fisher.

    Referring to the Bond film’s opening main title sequence, Ben Randatz says: ‘We’re co-directing together and we’re from a design collective called MK12.

    ‘”What do you think about naked women and lasers?”–that’s how we pitch every title design that our studio has ever done and then once that’s knocked away, we try and get to something more practical,’ says Fisher with a laugh.

    ‘But this time around, it’s an interesting challenge starting with Casino Royale and then in Quantum of Solace, Bond is reinventing himself, so our challenge is to pay homage to title sequences in the past and be respectful of the ground that’s been covered with the franchise, but also update that and give it some new life and new energy.’

    ‘There’s such a legacy with the Bond titles and it’s proven to be such an inspiration for designers, animators and filmmakers over the years. Being able to contribute to that and expand on that and take it in a new direction is really exciting.
