It’s funny how movie title sequences have now been moved to the back of the film. But that hasn’t stopped filmmakers from producing the occasional animated title sequence – which are traditionally better than the films that preceed them. Here is a link to a 2D oil-painted title sequence for the upcoming movie Love in the Time of Cholera (opening November 16th). Animator Paul Donnellon (of VooDooDog) is responsible for this one.
It’s just one of about two dozen collected by SubmarineChannel.com, which has begun gathering recent animated movie titles under the banner “Forget the Film, Watch the Titles”. This is a long term, on-going project to compile the best work in this field. It’s not just character animation: 3D, Motion Graphics and Mixed Media titles are also on display. Well worth a look.
