Bad Robot and director Julius Avery hired Filmograph to create the opening and closing title sequences to this World War II sci-fi thriller that takes place in a French village. Although the high stakes circumstances are anything but normal (the Americans are trying to prevent lab-testing Nazis from developing a serum that would create a 1000-year zombie super soldier), we proposed bookending the film with period-driven sequences that look and feel as if they are part of 1930-1940s newsreels, often seen at the head of feature films in theaters of the day. The result was a combination of bold, stark custom typography and a live-action shoot of the film's iconic set pieces, giving the production a stylized approach consistent with the era in which the film takes place.
