008 : Wimbledon – Title Sequence by Kyle Cooper

Kyle Cooper (who did a title sequence for SE7EN) has been credited with “almost single-handedly revitalizing the main-title sequence as an art form”. This is the example of the title sequence from Wimbledon. It effectively captures our eyes using the sound of a tennis racket hitting a ball and placing texts in different position, as your eyes looking at it like you are watching a tennis match. It also makes me think on how our eyes automatically look at text without knowing.

I can not resist the simpleness of typeface, music, and concept that go very well together. One word, genius!

007 : Text in Film

I have been reading the book called Type in Motion : Innovations in Digital Graphics and found out that there are a lot of typography uses in film, especially in title sequences. Here are some example:


Catch Me If You Can


SE7EN


Casino Royale


Thank You For Smoking


Kiss Kiss Bang Bang

006 : “Forget the Film, Watch the Titles”

Personally I love watching movie, and by watching movie means I pay attentions to every bit of it even its title sequence or ending credit. Because most of them are motion graphics and there are not just moving images. Title sequences are also consisted of design elements like typography, images, colours use, etc.  Luckily I found this website which has a lot of good title sequences from film, giving me inspirations and ideas.

005 : Studio For Virtual Typography

Studio for Virtual Typography was found by Matthias Hillner. He is profession in the field of visual communication, and explores the potential of typographic expression in the context of fine art. There is a music video piece for ML, which is interesting to see a unique typeface interacts with sound and visual elements.
