Saul Bass- the father of modern film titles



Such elegant simplicity. I love film titles.
NAPOLEON DYNAMITE

Imaginary forces are doing great things too; on films like Seven or the spiderman series... beautiful, and they really bring you into the story.
Picture Mill does amazing things, but they are almost too slick for my tastes. Maybe it's my cartoonness coming thru, but the modern eye candy look is overcooked.
Don't get me started on that tribal tattoo/dripping graffiti diarrhea that is all over MTV and reality TV, but then again it's as obnoxious as what it precedes, so it's done it's job.

I hope to do a film title someday soon.
