About these videos

These live-action title stings headlined the "scenes" in Danny Boyle's Olympic Opening Ceremony. All of them were displayed on the vast screens in the stadium, synchronised with the action on stage, and many were cut in full-frame to the live worldwide broadcast.

Produced by 59 - video designers for the Opening Ceremony - the sequences were directed by Aneil Karia and edited by 59's Joseph Pierce.
