Thorndyke (1964)

Concept and creative process

'Thorndyke' was a fine example of how to create a dramatic title sequence with limited means, a single piece of artwork. A composite image,  containing a number of high contrast monochrome atmospheric photographs and graphics, was filmed on a rostrum camera. Using fast panning and tracking shots and close-ups of individual images, brilliantly edited and synchronised to the sound track, it is a masterclass in creativity. Dramatic, simple and extremely cost effective.
