George Clooney / Grant Heslov
After a successful collaboration with Prologue on Argo, the film’s director George Clooney and producer Grant Heslov came to us to create an opening credits sequence that anchors the film within real life historical events. The escapades of the film’s cast are derived from the heroic and gratifying true story based on the book by Robert M. Edsel. Prologue showed authentic stock photography of soldiers recovering the stolen masterpieces of art taken by the Third Reich during World War II. This imagery stands in stark contrast to the images of the cast looking jovial and spirited as each member is introduced, reflecting the notion of this being an optimistic caper with a star-studded cast.
