Being a huge fan of typography, movie title sequences are something I anticipate and pay special attention to. It’s a time for some of the technical artists for a film to shine, and also sends clear signals of the director’s intent. For instance, the opening sequence for the new movie “Rango” captures beautifully the blend of homage, grit, and silliness of the entire movie.

This sampler of title sequences shows the variety and spectacle of this potentially underappreciated aspect of the movie experience.

Happy Friday!
