Once upon a time

Belmondo created the iconic 1970s titles and FX for the short film The Mountain King.

Starring Daniel Da Silva (American Mongrel), Thomas Cokenias (Fruitvale Station), and Emily Claeys (Anya), The Mountain King tells the surreal story of a con man who moves from the criminal underground of 1970s San Francisco to a vanity film project for his old boss.  

Belmondo looked at title sequences from films like Bullitt and Altered States, absorbing the techniques of designers Pablo Ferrar and Robert Greenberg.
