A brief history of movie title design


This video was created by Ian Albinson for the opening of the SxSW “Excellence in Title Design” competition screening. And it’s awesome. It’s a chronological mashup of movie title screens and opening sequences throughout the history of film. Not only does this mashup have an interesting subject – unlike some recent mashups – but it’s also just really well put together. 

I feel like movie title design is really underrated, it has the power to make a movie really memorable! Which title or opener is your favorite? Are there any movies that you feel were left out of this mashup?
