POST 2: TV/Film Title Design - Elisha

DEXTER...
serial killer?


The main title and opening sequence, created by Digital Kitchen (DK: an American based company with studios across the country), leaves you feeling a little disturbed and a lot intrigued.

The way it is filmed close up with surreal lighting, the montage of events that occur in every day morning routine such as shaving, flossing, dressing, preparing and eating breakfast almost seem like they are completely different to reality. Your captured by a feeling of suspense that lures you to a dark place without even realising your mind has taken you there!

It is designed to be a parody of the opening sequence in the movie American Psycho.

n, I believe DK have achieved exactly what was intended and more.

Napoleon Dynamite is another clever opening sequence...
Just thought I would throw something random in.

I love the creativity in using sauce to write with... so cool.

Check out the opening sequence for Lemony Snicket's - A series of unfortunate events.

It seems to be entirely made up of cut out shapes and puppetry. Amazing illustration and graphics. It drags on a bit too long I think but mostly because of the monotonous music though it's so detailed that it doesn't bore you. It very much depicts the setting and mood for the film even before you even see the first scene. Job well done. Kudos!

Unfortunately I had major problems loading this clip so if you are keen to view it you can go to the link posted at the bottom of this blog.

THE FIRST RULE OF FIGHT CLUB IS DON"T TALK ABOUT FIGHT CLUB.
THE SECOND RULE OF FIGHT CLUB IS DON"T TALK ABOUT FIGHT CLUB.
You guessed it... Fight Club is appealing to me because I really like the movie but the title is pretty cool also.
It leaves you wanting to know more, wanting to see what happens next.

It's very dark and has great 3D graphics. Possibly could have been more alluring with hints of what the movie is about but I think it captures your attention anyway.

IRON MAN

All round great movie. The opening sequence resembles the comics that Iron man originated from. I think the idea was to relate to kids and big kids alike. Mission accomplished. True genius. Love it. Love the movie and love the graphics. Very cool.
