Art of the Title talks to Filmograph title designer Aaron Becker and executive producer Seth Kleinberg about their work creating the opening and end sequences of Mission: Impossible -- Rogue Nation, which paid homage to the original 1960s television series and the film franchise as well as updating the look for 2015.

Says Becker about the end sequence, "I looked at the television title sequence, and we kept watching this little white graphic fuse that was going across the screen really slowly over footage, you know? And it was this beautiful, simple graphic concept that I thought we could update and bring into the modern era while still being able to tip our hats to some of the original [movie] franchise content."
