Monster's Inc. Title Sequence

The Monster's Inc. title sequence is one of my favorites of all time.  Most people agree.  It has been talked about by bloggers and reviewers everywhere.  

The upbeat jazz music and rhythm inspire the movement of the graphics.  It is also a title sequence that embodies what the film is going to be about.  The monster's hiding behind the doors as the opening credits were rolling really made the sequence playful but also relevant to the plot of the film.   It also went full force with taking parts of the sequence and playing around with them so they become the next part of the sequence.  To better explain what I'm trying to say,  the random shapes in the beginning become a door, the door opens and we find a children's closet and then a monster.  Later in the sequence, a monster's hand takes a piece of chalk and writes out the word "Presents" and then the chalk turns into a door.  See what I mean?  The designer was playful and turned certain things into other relevant things.   It was one of the first Pixar films with a true title sequence.

Susan Bradley is the designer of the title sequence. So here it is.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
