"X-Men: Dark Phoenix" - Main Titles pitch. Prologue films. (2018)
Pitch concept and design: David Penn
Production Company: 20th Century Fox/Marvel
Distributor: Walt Disney Studios
Kyle Cooper tasked me with conceiving a direction for another main title sequence, this time for the anticipated next chapter in the X-Men franchise.
My concept focuses on the latent natural power of the volcano, with an escalating mood of foreboding. I wanted to eschew overt imagery of violence or force and instead set up an uneasy calm before the storm.
