Performance (1970)
Director: Donald Cammell, Nicolas Roeg

A controversial front title sequence introducing lead gangster character Chas (James Fox) starting his day, set amongst the trappings of gang violence and an s&m romp in bed.

The shot for the death of a gangster was achieved with a stylistic mix to a blood red frame.

We are introduced to the hedonistic pleasures of Turner (Mick Jagger) in this sensual love sequence. We created the super 8 style viefinder and grainy POV shots.

For the 'Mick Jagger playing gangster' and 'bullet through the brain' sequences, we used a combination of animation and projection techniques to achieve the effect.

The end title sequence is composed of Nicolas Roeg's background plates with white titles.
