You probably know Richard Morrison's work for movies such as Batman, Brazil, High Fidelity, Enemy at the Gates, and Sweeney Todd. So we took a little trip to London to meet with the charismatic title designer, who also happens to be a fascinating character. Morrison talks title design, and takes us on a grand tour around the th1ng studio and to his favorite coffee shop in Soho, the wonderful Bar Italia, where he's made a lot of movie deals over the years. First in a brand-new series of 9 interviews with title designers, from the "Watch the Titles" 2 DVD-set. In the early 1970's, Morrison was a young and ambitious graphic designer working at a production studio in London. Here he ran into title design legend Maurice Binder. Binder asked him to assist him with the production of one of the James Bond title sequences. This led Morrison to pursue movie title design. Morrison got his first "lucky break," as he calls it, in 1979, when director Franc Roddam asked him to design the main title for Quadrophenia. Morrison's body of work includes over one hundred title sequences for film and TV. Notable directors he has worked with (often more than once) include, Tim Burton, Terry Gilliam, Jean-Jacques Annaud, David Lean, Stephen Frears, Kenneth Branagh, Ridley Scott, and Nicolas Roeg. Mid-summer of 2010, we took the train to London to visit Morrison at the th1ng headquarters in London for an interview. Morrison is a fascinating character to talk to, and a great storyteller.moreless
