If you haven't noticed Jeremy Kirk's coverage by now, it's time you realized that the South by Southwest Film Festival is currently happening down in Austin, Texas (all of our reviews from the fest can be found right here). This year the SXSW Title Design Competition had a cool introduction created by Ian Albinson from The Art of the Title Sequence, a website we highlighted back in December of 2009. As a connoisseur of the title sequences in films, he was able to put together A Brief History of Title Design, a slick montage of some of the best and most unique title sequences in cinema. Watch this great video below!
Once again, if you haven't checked out the site responsible for this awesome video, The Art of the Title Sequence is a compendium and leading web resource of film and television title design from around the world. "We honor the artists who design excellent title sequences. We discuss and display their work with a desire to foster more of it, via stills and video links, interviews, creator notes, and user comments." If you haven't checked out the site, they have plenty of videos of some of my (and probably your) favorite title sequences from films in every decade. Pretty cool, eh?
