Bill Condon / Touchstone Pictures
MAIN TITLE | VFX
For The Fifth Estate’s opening title sequence, Prologue wanted to take audiences back through the history of the press, and suggest that Julian Assange’s work depicted in the film was the next logical evolution. As the sequence guides the viewer from cave drawings to the modern day, each successive technology is seen outdating its predecessor as consumers flock to more rapid forms of information, such as when the television era is literally smashed by computers, or when tablets and cell phones cause the evaporation of print. The sequence concludes after successfully contextualizing the press revolution of the past few decades, and where Assange may possibly fit in next.
