Film titles designer Richard Morrison and producer Olive Segré have created the opening sequence for Cleopatra. A new US-made TV film developed by production company Hallmark, the film revisits the classic Egyptian tale. The film itself was directed by UK film maker Franc Roddam, previously responsible for the classic British mods and rockers film, Quadrophenia. The opening sequence features a silhouette of Cleopatra in a dark chamber, lit only by light from a hole in the ceiling. Superimposed on to this image, the title is spelled out in an imposing typeface evocative of ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics.
