Director: Richard Lester

Front and end titles, Clark to Superman transformation.

A swift recap of the story so far formed the basis of this sequence. We were also able to use our 'strobe' effect on the titles which ended up on the cutting room floor for the fiirst film.

For the Clark to Superman transformation, we were amazed that when analysing Christopher Reeve's foot placement, he was able to produce two takes in different costumes that were almost identical, step for step. The tricky rotoscope work as he runs behind a power generator was painted by Alan Hall.
