If you were one of the millions of people who caught Sherlock Holmes over the holidays, you probably found it to be a rollicking good time befitting director Guy Ritchie’s sensibility for snappy (and sometimes indecipherable) dialogue and rapid-fire action.
Prologue lent its hand to the project for the main on end credits, opening logo sequence and for the newspaper transitions throughout the film. The main on end sequence kept me in my seat, if only for the elegant interplay of calligraphy and freeze-framed illustrations. For all their elements in the film, Prologue’s art direction was a subtle blend of Victorian references and contemporary design, eschewing rigidly accurate imagery for an interpretation that echoed Ritchie’s lively re-imagining of Holmes himself.
