Prologue is a team of designers and filmmakers that direct live action infused with typography, editorial techniques, and computer-generated imagery based in Venice, CA.

Their recent studio work includes sequences for Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, Rango, X-Men: First Class, Robin Hood, and American Horror Story, as well as visual effects shots for Prometheus, Battleship, TRON: Legacy, Tropic Thunder, and The Tempest.
