The blood-red sequence at the tail-end of Fury, David Ayer’s 2014 war potboiler, offers a brief respite from the gruesome bloodletting before plunging back into the fray. The film eschews an opening title sequence in favour of the one-two punch of a simple title card at the fore and an evocative main title sequence at the close.
Created by designers at Greenhaus GFX under Executive Creative Director Helen Greene, the end sequence is a pastiche of real World War II archival footage, film artifact and degradation effects, and fast-paced editing. It begins on a sombre, wistful note; a soft piano piece by Composer Steven Price slowly shuffling forward. Soon the pace is a quick march, with strings and chants invading and deep distorted bass notes blaring through. The editing of the piece, cut precisely to the music, provides resonance, energy, and ultimately a strong finish.
