Movie Title Stills

Posted by Tom | Posted in Title Sequences Movie Title Stills

First of all, hello and welcome back to Raw Type! We were extremely busy in late 2011 — which is great for the studio — although unfortunately it means updating blogs gets put to the bottom of the list. As it’s now 2012 we thought we’d introduce the new year with a collection of film intros. This wonderful archive of Movie Title Stills was collated by Christian Annyas and showcases hundreds of films as far back as 1920.

Saul Bass

Posted by Tom | Posted in Title Sequences Saul Bass

Saul Bass is undeniably the father of title sequence design. Film titles were rarely shown until reels of The Man with the Golden Arm were delivered to cinemas with notes attached reading “Projectionists – pull curtain before titles”. Bass’ titles acted as an insight into the film and a way to set the scene before an actor had uttered a single word.

Placements. You want one? Well, we can offer you one, but it’ll cost you… 1 creative project to be exact. Best case scenario, you’ll get a month-long placement and some recognition for your efforts. Worst case scenario, you’ll have a lovely new project to add to your portfolio.
