                    Now, we are Formatte! www.formatte.eu If you’ve ever seen a movie, you’ve seen opening titles of some kind. Opening credits have existed pretty much since the beginning of moving pictures, and they are as varied as the films themselves. “THE FILM before THE FILM” is a short documentary that traces the evolution of title design through the history of film. This short film was a research project at the BTK (Berliner Technische Kunsthochschule) that takes a look at pioneers like Saul Bass, Maurice Binder and Kyle Cooper by showing the transitions from early film credits to the inclusion of digital techniques, a resurgence of old-school style, and filmmakers' love of typography in space. If you have any questions, comments or suggestions contact us: filmbeforefilm[at]ntsdpz.com CREDITS: Research: Nora Thös, Damian Pérez Animation & Cut: Nora Thös, Damian Pérez Text & Translation: Nora Thös, Christian Mahler Sound & Dubbing: Damian Pérez Proofreading & Voice: Demetrius Papadakis Professors: Christian Mahler, Daniel Wangen Special Thanks to: Ian Albinson for his suggestions and corrections.

A chronological journey from the Beatles’ use of the Mellotron in the 60s to the sample dense hiphop and dance music of the 80s and 90s. Each break is represented by a vibrating vinyl soundwave exploding into various tracks that sampled it, each re-use another chapter in the modern narrative. THANKS to WhoSampled.com
