From Stephen Frankfurt’s beautiful title sequence for To Kill a Mockingbird (1962)

“In our August issue, Adam Lee Davies looks at the continuing rise of the film title sequence since its artistic resurgence in the 1990s. In his article, Better Than the Film?, he talks to many of the genre’s leading practioners such as Kyle Cooper and Garson Yu. For CR Blog, Davies has selected 30 of the best title sequences ever made…”

Those guys at Creative Review have done it again, with a selection of more than 30 films spanning the past decades, here really are, some of the best film titles ever made. Click the link at the top  to go to the full article and watch the titles.

This made me think of Emily’s work and despite having talked about lots of constructions around this very thing, we never thought of/discussed title sequences…perhaps this will add some more fuel to the fire?

  1. Can’t believe I hadn’t yet thought about the whole idea of the film title. Unfortunately I can’t read the full article on CR as I’m not a member. I think the most notable contemporary example i can think of right now is the James Bond films, and their title sequences = epic, though there are so many more out there.
    I love the annimated use of 2d imagery and 3D movement through a beginning narrative, like cutouts, like that 16:9 Carousel…I could keep rambling…

    there’s a couple of cool ones here though
