The Art of the Title Sequence

The Art of the Title Sequence -

Very cool site... here's what says:

When film title sequences are done right — as in the hypnotic opening of Vertigo — they are much more profoundly a part of the movie experience than, say, a book cover is of the reading experience, and they set you up for what’s about to come next almost as effectively and memorably as a great literary first line. Now a film-obsessed website, Art of the Title, has begun collecting striking opening and end title sequences from movies and television shows.

Founded by Ian Albinson, a Vermont-based designer, and Alexander Ulloa, a writer in Boston, the site is a goldmine for anyone looking for a quick film or design fix. From the whip-crack art direction of The Good, the Bad and the Ugly to recent sequences that are sometimes better than the films for which they’re created (The Island of Dr. Moreau), the site’s selections are a perfect tribute to the designers and filmmakers who made and continue to make great movies better from start to finish.
