Title Sequence Project

When searching for my next title sequence I found this very interesting video and explanation...

A History Of The Title Sequence from jurjen versteeg on Vimeo.

And here is the explanation...

"Designed as a possible title sequence for a fictitious documentary, this film shows a history of the title sequence in a nutshell. The sequence includes all the names of title designers who had a revolutionary impact on the history and evolution of the title sequence. The names of the title designers all refer to specific characteristics of the revolutionary titles that they designed.
This film refers to elements such as the cut and shifted characters of Saul Bass' Psycho title, the colored circles of Maurice Binder's design for Dr. No and the contemporary designs of Kyle Cooper and Danny Yount.

This title sequence refers to the following designers and their titles:
Georges Méliès - Un Voyage Dans La Lune, Saul Bass - Psycho, Maurice Binder - Dr. No, Stephen Frankfurt - To Kill A Mockingbird, Pablo Ferro - Dr. Strangelove, Richard Greenberg - Alien, Kyle Cooper - Seven, Danny Yount - Kiss Kiss Bang Bang / Sherlock Holmes" - Jurjen Versteeg

For the next project, I was thinking about creating a "Going the Distance" title sequence. I love the movie and I love the title sequence. It will be difficult to make it my own because I love how the original one was made. It is also a bit intimidating because of all the layers and motion. I will have to channel Georges Melies and Saul Bass for their creativity! The company who created this title sequence is Imaginary Forces. They have created many mainstream title sequences and I am definitely going to look into more of their work. They have a great website!
