Graduation project 2011
Designed as a possible title sequence for a fictitious documentary, this film shows a history of the title sequence in a nutshell. The sequence includes all the names of title designers who had a revolutionary impact on the history and evolution of the title sequence. The names of the title designers all refer to specific characteristics of the revolutionary titles that they designed.
This film refers to elements such as the cut and shifted characters of Saul Bass' Psycho title, the colored circles of Maurice Binder's design for Dr. No and the contemporary designs of Kyle Cooper and Danny Yount.
This title sequence refers to the following designers and their titles:
Georges Méliès - Un Voyage Dans La Lune, Saul Bass - Psycho, Maurice Binder - Dr. No, Stephen Frankfurt - To Kill A Mockingbird, Pablo Ferro - Dr. Strangelove, Richard Greenberg - Alien, Kyle Cooper - Seven, Danny Yount - Kiss Kiss Bang Bang / Sherlock Holmes

Computer Arts Magazine approached us with the question to design their monthly returning Design Matters project, which consists out of a full page for their print magazine and a 30 second video for their iPad edition.
We sat down together and thought of things that could be lots of fun. A high speed camera, a kilo of confetti and a handful of colorful ping pong balls were the end result.
You can buy the iPad edition in Apple's Newsstand: goo.gl/aib83
Production: From Form / Part of Something
Music and sound design: Ben Lukas Boysen
