Dumb & Dumber Remix

When we initially discussed opening title sequences to remake, I got to thinking about the Superbad title sequence our very own Ashley Chiocco posted about. This got me thinking about a debate among my friends as far as whether the comedies of today (Superbad, Knocked Up, The Hangover, etc.) can stack up against the comedies of our childhood (Dumb & Dumber, Tommy Boy, Ace Ventura, etc.), so why not compare the title sequences as well? In this case, the movies of today take the cake. Superbad's opening sequence is so unique and catches the eye so well, whereas a movie such as Dumb & Dumber has a sequence that brings virtually nothing to the table with the exception of having a cliche catchy 90's song to go along with it.

As you can see, this opening sequence doesn't quite hold a candle to the effort that went into the Superbad sequence.

I have decided to try to bring a more unique edge to the opening of Dumb & Dumber, hopefully combining After Effects and Photoshop to make something more creative than a few names showing up and animating themselves over some video! Wish me luck.
