The Art of the Title

Its true that many title sequences are more artistic than the movie itself.  Creating an interesting interaction of text and image, to set the stage for a story has evolved into its own art form.  As we start working on longer term video projects, I'm more and more tempted to divide students into highly specialized groups to work towards a larger group project.  Putting one group in charge of a title sequence could lead to some interesting results.  

The useful resources I just found at The Art of the Title fuels that particular fire.  The image above is from one of my favorite films, Jean Jeunet's Delicatessen
