We've interviewed Daniel Kleinman about his work on Bond, specifically Casino Royale. Have a look at our CR retrospective and DK interview here, and check out some exclusive early designs for the CR title sequence here!

Thanks for the heads-up T.I.S

Great interview, and great concept art - didn't stray far from the final vision.

I love this section of the interview:

What can you tell us about your title sequence for Skyfall? Is it finished? Have you seen the film? Can you tell us who's doing the theme song? Is the gunbarrel back at the start of the film?

I could answer all those questions but I'd probably find a man clad in black in my bedroom with a silencer, and have only a very short time left to live while he tried to screw it on, if I did.

As I write [mid-August 2012], the title sequence for Skyfall is still in production, as is the film. I have seen an unfinished screening of the movie and in my opinion it's going to be a triumph.

A great tease but wonderful that nothing simple is being let slipped!

Hmm..the fact that Daniel Kleinman himself says he's seen an unfinished screening of Skyfall makes me do a complete 180 and think that there may be some glimmer of truth to that IMDB poster's claim to having seen a preview screening..Perhaps EON ARE doing some test screenings for lucky members of the general public...I dunno

Also a subtle confirmation in there that the theme song performer for SKYFALL has indeed been selected and Daniel Kleinman knows who it is.
