Today was a good day. I had some time off after a long time and though the day started early I managed to step out, meet an old friend, have a lovely lunch, wandered around Indiranagar (Bangalore). All an all peaceful and perfect!
As I mentioned in my last post, I was shooting for a series of short vignettes for Nokia Research Center and now I am editing them. I will try and put them up online. However, I did get thinking about the opening and title sequences (so important and so under-rated!).
I am posting three that are really like! Of course the list is endless starting Saul Bass to Kuntzel + Deygas of ‘Catch Me If You Can’ fame but, I wanted to pick three relatively recent films and shows, that had varied and interesting opening sequences.
CASINO ROYALE- 2006
LOST- OPENING SEQUENCE- David LaChapelle
UP IN THE AIR- OPENING SEQUENCE
Taking lives is another film whose title sequence I really enjoyed (sorry I cant find the sequence anywhere! But watch it if you can. Music by Philip Glass compliments it perfectly!)
Write in with your favorite title sequences!
ciao for now!
