Saul Bass/Amazon Studio

This is a compilation of Saul Bass' title work that was put out to celebrate a new book called Saul Bass: A Life in Film and Design. The video is pretty cool, and it showed a lot of titles I didn't know he had made, such as the West Side Story, Spartacus and Ocean's 11 titles. It also helps you notice patterns in what he does, like the patterns with moving lines and close-ups of eyes. I'm hoping this video is in the right format, since it came from Vimeo.

The Saul Bass book was written by a design historian named Pat Kirkham, who apparently knew Saul Bass personally and collaborated with his family while writing the book.

Random link: this is the link to the Saul Bass book, but scroll down past it and look at "Special Offers." I've never heard of Amazon Studios before, but apparently they have scripts that they're inviting people to storyboard and make test movies of for periodic contests. Sounds interesting, so I thought I'd throw it out there.
