Les Chevaliers du Ciel (original title) is a French action movie about two air force pilots assigned to locate a stolen Mirage 2000-5.
Title designer Laurent Brett: “The title sequence was inspired by blueprints and model kits. The director showed me a rough cut of the first sequence and asked me to find a ‘technological’ way to introduce the names. It was the first time I was not involved, hands-on, in the active process. I only designed, edited and work on the font.”
