The Duke

This title sequence treats Jim Broadbent’s Kempton Bunton like the brilliant international art thief that police assumed he was. This feel of the heist movie in the form of multiple screens is a nod to the work of the great crime-caper titles maestro, Pablo Ferro (The Thomas Crown Affair, Bullitt) and is a regular feature in SuperGrizzly contributions throughout the film. The small/big & colourless/gold typography is a representation of the David & Goliath battles that Bunton was habitually drawn to. This is a heart-warming national treasure of a film that made us cry and laugh, from script to screen. Director Roger Michell’s unique flare for touching and funny drama will be greatly missed. It was a honour to work with him this one time.
