"The Commuter", 2018.
It is always a privilege to be given latitude for experimentation on a feature film project. I was especially pleased to be invited by Prologue Films to help reach a main title treatment, and to explore various means of elucidating the film’s interlacing timeframes. As a bonus I got to design a very special and distinctive end roller.
Kyle Cooper invited me to develop one of the concepts I had sketched out for the main titles which riffed upon the language of rail network schematics, and to extrapolate it as a memorable end crawl. I did not hold back: I’ve admired Kyle’s work since before my career even began, and was aware that if anybody could help a client to recognise the benefit of departing from the standard end-roller, it was him.
Below are examples of concept development I undertook for main titles and timeframe explication.
Some logo ideas I played with can be seen (for infinity) below:
And the original network in its (near-) entirety that I conceived and designed for the film’s end roller.
