Having created all the titles and the sequence for the film we are really please to see Zaytoun getting its UK release, especially over the festive season with as Empire say "A Christmas truce movie that promises to bring peace, if not to all mankind, then at least to those people who go to see it."

Zaytoun titles go on-line at BUF in Paris

I arrived to a quiet Paris this morning in the middle of the holiday season, with the streets having been left mainly deserted of the usual traffic jams that one is a custom to in the French capital. We are now in BUF putting the stuffing into the main title sequence for 'Zaytoun' and I have noticed their 3D department do like a trophy cabinet as you can see!

I am here with the film's director Eran Riklis and post production supervisor Michael Saxton for the on-line edit and I will try to avoid being added to the cabinet!
