In the children's movie Kidnep, Bo, the only child of rich parents, is kidnapped. Against all odds, Bo and his abductor Fred develop a relationship. Bo sees in Fred the father he has missed, and Fred faces his fears and finally learns how to be a father.
Planet X Title Design designed the titles for ‘Kidnep’ (Kidnap). The main title is located just beneath the water surface, while the camera shaves straight over. The main title thus accentuates the magnitude of the shot.
The typography of main title is solid and tough, and at the same time also knotted. The font was once made with duct tape. With this design we take the young viewers seriously, at the same time, the knocked shapes fit the character of the abductors.
