First of all, if you've yet to see Thank You For Smoking, you're missing a greatf flick.
And the main titles are especially sweet. Because we all know what they say about first impressions.
That’s why both Hollywood and independent studios are spending time and resources to create the most appropriate main title sequences for their films. At its very best, a title sequence is a self-contained hybrid that combines multiple media – motion graphics, film, animation, cgi – to compress the essence of the film it introduces.
The SubmarineChannel has started an online collection of the most stunning and original main titles. Some are engaging or wildly entertaining, funny, exhilarating or deadly beautiful. Some are oozing with visual treats while others hit you hard with their bold and audacious style.
Either way, if you're into type you'll dig.
