Santa Monica, CA, July 21, 2010 — Nina Saxon Design, one of the entertainment industryâ€™s leading design production studios, has completed the main and end titles for the upcoming Columbia Picturesâ€™ action/thriller, â€œSalt,â€? starring Angelina Jolie.
Director Phillip Noyce said, â€œWorking on the â€˜Saltâ€™ opening credits with Nina Saxon was a pleasure. She has a keen visual sense and deft creative insights. Nina understood the story we were telling, and found a way to express the duality of the film’s main character, in a bold and graphic style that sets the tone for everything to come.”
Nina Saxon, widely acknowledged for close to 30 years as one of Hollywoodâ€™s most accomplished and successful title designers, adds, â€œI enjoyed working once again with Phillip on â€˜Salt.â€™ He is creative, secure in his choices, and has a wonderful ability to articulate his vision. I see my work as a moving introduction to the film, and representative of the ambiguity inherent within its story.â€?
