[Monday Inspiration] – Kook Ewo (title sequence designer)
Born in 1979, Kook Ewo represents better than no one the new generation of “made in France” title sequence directors.
Very strong visual biases, a sense of very stylized typography, a committed will to evoke genuine emotions for the audience; this true artist knows how to make his work a real piece of art, but always serving the director. Kook Ewo is behind all these noteworthy title sequences: “Silent Hill” (Christophe Gans), “Splice” (Vincenzo Natali) and “Solomon Kane” (Michael J. Basset).
Kook Ewo also directs commercials and short-films. “Black Night is falling” won the Grand Prize of the Angouleme Short-film festival in 2008.
Here is a great interview with him.
