Big Film Design is proud to have been involved with two wonderful films opening this week, Rolling Thunder Revue: A Bob Dylan Story by Martin Scorsese from Netflix, and Jim Jarmusch’s The Dead Don’t Die from Focus Features.
BFD created the opening and end title sequences for Rolling Thunder Revue, inspired by the circus-style lettering used on the stage curtain. The end title sequence dramatizes Dylan’s incredible continuing history of touring.
In an alchemic mix of fact and fantasy, Scorsese looks back at Bob Dylan’s 1975 Rolling Thunder Revue tour and a country ripe for reinvention. Starring Bob Dylan, with Allen Ginsberg, Joan Baez, Patti Smith, Joni Mitchell, Sam Shepard and Sharon Stone. You can stream it on Netflix now, or even better, see it in its limited theatrical release in NY and LA.

In addition to creating the main and end title sequences, BFD’s Creative Director, Randy Balsmeyer, was Second Unit Director for Jim Jarmusch’s The Dead Don’t Die. Randy was responsible for several driving sequences, including a car-to-car sequence swerving through a zombie-infested town at night. Something a little different from visual effects and title design!
We hope you enjoy this hilarious take on the zombie genre, starring Bill Murray, Adam Driver, Tilda Swinton, Chloë Sevigny, Steve Buscemi, Danny Glover, Caleb Landry Jones, Rosie Perez, Iggy Pop, Sara Driver, RZA, Selena Gomez, Carol Kane, Austin Butler, Luka Sabbat and Tom Waits. The Dead Don’t Die opens in theaters nationwide today.
