The opening titles of the BBC/AMC’s The Night Manager depicts the show’s two worlds brilliantly. The plush items of a luxury hotel and the explosive weapons of warfare meld into one another in the clever sequence, directed by Patrick Clair of Elastic.
“I was fascinated by the visual motif of military destruction morphing into luxury jewels, drinks and decadence,” Clair tells STASH MAGAZINE. “The Night Manager confronts this commodification of conflict head-on… and it’s a gripping drama at that. Hopefully, the sequence we’ve crafted for the front of the show captures this in a way that is spectacular and deeply unsettling in equal measure.”
