title sequence for Walt Disney Pictures
Shine designed and produced the main-on-ends for “Saving Mr. Banks” starring Emma Thompson and Tom Hanks, and directed by John Lee Hancock. Shine designed the end titles with a sequence of vintage photographs from the actual production of the classic 1964 film, Mary Poppins. Shine also designed a custom Walt Disney Pictures animated logo for the head of the film, that takes inspiration from Disney logos from the sixties.
Sketches and photos from the original production became the main visual for the sequence.
Saving Mr. Banks was directed by John Lee Hancock from a screenplay written by Kelly Marcel and Sue Smith. Centered on the development of the 1964 Walt Disney Studios film Mary Poppins, the film stars Emma Thompson as author P. L. Travers and Tom Hanks as filmmaker Walt Disney, with supporting performances from Colin Farrell, Paul Giamatti, Jason Schwartzman, Bradley Whitford, Ruth Wilson, B. J. Novak, Rachel Griffiths, and Kathy Baker.
Named after the father in Travers’ story, the film depicts the author’s fortnight-long briefing in 1961 Los Angeles as she is persuaded by Disney, in his attempts to obtain the screen rights to her novels. Produced by Walt Disney Pictures, Ruby Films and Essential Media and Entertainment in association with BBC Films and Hopscotch Features, Saving Mr. Banks was shot entirely in the Southern California area, primarily at the Walt Disney Studios in Burbank, where a majority of the film’s narrative takes place.
