Last night on #MoChat we discussed title design. We talked about our favorite sequences, some that didn’t fit with their films, and working on our own. Some of the favorite sequences included Catch Me If You Can, Island of Dr. Moreau, Captain America, Superman (1978), Se7en, Fight Club, Six Feet Under, Game of Thrones, Murder by Death and many more. Some title sequences, while well done in their own right, seem to have a disconnect with the film. Examples brought up last night included Juno and The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.

Many also had favorite designers, including Jay Bond (who was present in the chat as @jbcashmoney), Saul Bass, Kyle Cooper, Danny Yount, and Karin Fong. And there was a great conversation that followed, mostly spearheaded by @Oddernod, @jbcashmoney, and @robotika_org about creating titles. @Oddernod also linked a great post about the lessons learned from working on the Person of Interest titles (with a two-and-a-half week turnaround).

For many great write-ups on title sequences (and even some interviews), be sure to take a look at Art of the Title.

Welcome to #MoChat everyone. Tonight we’re talking about title design. To start off, what’s everyone’s favorite title sequence & why?9:00 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Hey. Hard to pick a fav for me. In TV though Six Feet Under changed the game I think. I’m into the clean visual ones. #MoChat9:02 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Catch Me If You Can. Great homage to the title sequences of the era. #mochat9:02 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

damn you Paul! That’s what I was going to say! It’s just so well executed and clean as well! #mochat9:03 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

I have a lot, one that really caught my attention several years ago was the opening titles of Seven. Loved the style #mochat9:03 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

For me it was Kyle Cooper’s “The Island of Dr Moreau”. One of the reasons I started #mochat9:04 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

I also really dig the main-on-end titles for Captain America. Great way to bring 2D poster art into 3D. #mochat9:04 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

As a youth: obsessed w/the titles for Richard Donner’s SUPERMAN (1978). Music & type captured the euphoria of adventure. #mochat9:04 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Also, if you didn’t already know, has a fantastic site devoted to title design. #mochat9:04 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Seven was a breakthrough for film as well. Brilliant. Love organic elements in it. I try to use those as well when I can. #MoChat9:05 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Fincher films always stick out for title sequences. “Fight Club” sticks out as something that got me into mograph. #mochat9:05 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

RT : Also, if you didn’t already know, has a fantastic site devoted to title design. #mochat9:06 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

While I didn’t see the movie, I have seen and fallen in love with the end titles from “Yogi Bear” #mochat9:06 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Thanks for the mention. We’re having a great deal of fun with it: http://t.co/M8CgidWx #mochat9:06 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Yes!! The combination of the John Williams score with the space and titles sequence is amazing #mochat9:06 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

for me ,the open tittles from ” Irréversible” de gaspar noe( french movie)…#mochat9:07 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

We’ll be touching on “Superman” for a Richard Greenberg feature in early January. #mochat9:07 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Really love the main-on-ends from Pixar, esp The Incredibles and Ratatouille. Scott Pilgrim & Kung Fu Panda as well #moChat9:07 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

I would literally come home from school, watch those titles, then do my homework. #mochat9:08 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Superman and The Shining. Movies watched in the weekends as a kid with timeless titles. #MoChat9:08 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Main-on-ends are frequently awesome. When did main-on-ends start becoming a thing? #mochat9:08 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

maybe its the kid in me.. but I always look forward to any bond sequence, guns and ahem.. guns.. #mochat9:08 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

My eyes just welled-up! #mochat9:09 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Mine was the Six Feet Under title sequence. Talk about storytelling. #mochat9:10 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

I’m running a little behind. I’ll join in shortly #mochat9:10 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

the whole opening sequence from the shining is incredible, all those aerial shots and the yellow titles #mochat9:10 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

RT : Title design. Share favorite sequences, experiences creating them, and tips for others. Tonight 9PM ET (GMT-5) #MoChat http://t.co/dckDg6qq9:10 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

I think did a great job on the Quantum of Solace titles. #mochat9:10 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

RT : Mine was the Six Feet Under title sequence. Talk about storytelling. #MoChat9:10 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

The 2D narrative recap concluding THE INCREDIBLES sure is a lot of fun. #mochat9:11 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

The score was brilliant. #MoChat9:11 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

When I was little my fav title sequence was the pop-up book at the beginning of Murder by Death. Later, Seven got my attention again #mochat9:12 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Nothing will beat these titles, ever. http://t.co/rMKZwCff #mochat9:12 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

yes, also the score! #mochat9:12 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Just got here, hi guys! I think the opening of True Blood is incredible. #mochat9:12 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Oh, man. I forgot about Murder by Death. Great film, too! #mochat9:12 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Currently both editions of The Walking Dead are quite solid as well. Both technically and visually. I think they’re quite slick. #MoChat9:12 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Yeah, “Murder by Death” is definitely on my list. #mochat9:13 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Seven. Yes! I feel like there hasn’t been a comparably groundbreaking horror title since. #MoChat9:13 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

And the opening of Game of Thrones is like a brilliant short. Likewise Watchmen. #mochat9:13 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Do any of you have favorite title designers? #MoChat9:14 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

For me it’s the use of the organic elements again with TB. The red mylar and bits to make the typography #MoChat9:14 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

great one GoT is a lesson in titles. #mochat9:14 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

They fit the series so well. #mochat9:14 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

I really loved the titles from Watchmen, captured the mood straight away #mochat9:14 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

The Lemony Snicket’s End Titles are pretty fantastic. https://t.co/osVA40L4 #MoChat9:15 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

you must also like the Dexter ones? #mochat9:15 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

I also like those opening titles, the music and shots really sucks you into the whole mood of the series #mochat9:15 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

I agree! And the editing and the footage they got, too. #mochat9:15 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

I really like the movie ones done my Saul Bass. An innovator. #mochat9:15 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

We’re a fan of Jay Bond’s work. 😉 #mochat9:15 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Watchmen!! I love that opening sequence with the “slow motion photographs” #mochat9:16 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

That’s pretty much a given, isn’t it? #mochat9:16 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Yes, very solid. So saturated now in the media but when it came out it was stunning. #MoChat9:16 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

My favorite title designer is #mochat9:17 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Sorry,. I never assume anything 😀 RT : Thats pretty much a given, isnt it? #mochat9:17 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Dylan gave them the original stems from “The Times They Are A-Changin’,” since the seq is longer than the song. So cool. #mochat9:17 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Baha! Thx for shout out . Right back at you. RT : Were a fan of Jay Bonds work. 😉 #MoChat9:18 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Love when a TV show gets time & budget to launch with a great title. You knew what you were getting from GoT by the end of the title #moChat9:18 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

simple but fun is the The Incredibles Titles. http://t.co/GTHPOz61 #MoChat9:18 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Not sure if it’s the lens of nostalgia, but I feel there aren’t very many authoritative title designers in the past couple decades. #mochat9:18 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Kyle Cooper. Danny Yount. Karin Fong. #moChat9:19 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Yes, nice combo of shot footage and stock stuff. #MoChat9:19 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

What were some title sequences that were well executed, but didn’t connect with the film? What was the disconnect? #mochat9:19 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

And Bass was truly an innovator, look how varied his title work was: http://t.co/m1cnMidP #mochat9:20 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

I LOVVVVEEEEE THESE! http://t.co/Q75SISY5 You seriously cant do them this way any more. #mochat9:20 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

All top drawer designers. Brilliant bodies of work. RT : Kyle Cooper. Danny Yount. Karin Fong. #MoChat9:20 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Saul leaves me speechless. A visionary. #MoChat9:21 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Aaron Becker () http://t.co/3Ja7t454 is doing great tittle work. #MoChat9:21 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Well, if you were doing an 80s throw-back film, you could. #mochat9:21 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

We all stand on Saul’s shoulders #moChat9:21 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

we talking about french cooking tonight??? #mochat9:21 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

it gives me this message “You don’t have permission to access …. die-hard-2-movie-title.jpg on this server” #mochat9:21 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

That’s interesting about the music for “Watchmen”. We should talk about it in our article. #mochat9:21 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Yep. What’s your favorite Julia Child recipe? #mochat9:21 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

the one where she dies #mochat9:22 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

People may disagree with me on this.. but I thought Juno was a great example of this. Great intro but does it fit? #mochat9:22 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Gets the budget. You said it. #MoChat9:22 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Paul Matthaeus, Karin Fong, Kyle Cooper, MOMOCO, DVEIN RT : Do any of you have favorite title designers? #MoChat9:22 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

I hate b/c I want that Twitter handle! ;P But seriously—> XO #mochat9:22 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

i agree with you #mochat9:22 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

What kind of timeframes are people working on for titles? We had 2.5 weeks for Person Of Interest https://t.co/kfZXCHch #moChat9:22 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

http://t.co/dcZWWUqq here is link #mochat Die Hard 2 titles.9:22 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

I think the mood was right, but I know what you mean. #mochat9:23 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

I second that. #MoChat9:23 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

The home alone titles as well, were amazing. http://t.co/C1nEIqpx #mochat9:24 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

New “Person Of Interest” sequence is great btw. #mochat9:24 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Are you drunk already? #mochat9:24 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

it needed to be more blue #mochat9:24 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

To be honest, I don’t know what type of film I think it would fit. Could have been done in a simple way & still worked #mochat9:24 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Ha didn’t Prologue do those way back when? #mochat9:24 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

I believe it’s mentioned on the blu-ray, or in a book I have. Blew me away he’d be that generous. Very cool. #mochat9:25 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

thanks #mochat9:25 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

He’s just going old school. #mochat9:25 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

No! There is just a authenticity to them that you absolutely couldn’t pull off today. The work that went into them, man #mochat9:25 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Unlike Scott Pilgrim vs World. I thought titles were over the top, then the rest of the movie happened and I retracted. #mochat9:25 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

i mean, i think the overall feel was there, but it lacked emotion #mochat9:25 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Sounds right. When I add the days up. I’ve been kinda forced to get a few days here and there. Usually over a few weeks. #MoChat9:25 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

I’ll get heat for this, but I think Fincher’s Girl with the Dragon Tattoo titles were too disconnected from the film. #mochat9:25 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

The thematic elements were there, but it overreached the film at hand & felt more like they just wanted to make a NIN video. #mochat9:26 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

did they? #mochat9:26 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

The ELEMENTARY titles were popular when they came out recently. Love seeing more photographic work alongside mograph/editorial #moChat9:26 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

It was R/Greenberg Associates, and I think Cooper. #mochat9:26 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

I was just about to say the same thing. LOVED the sequence, but didn’t fit the movie. #mochat9:26 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

I didn’t know you worked on those titles! great job! #mochat9:26 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Also, yeah I am drunk. #mochat9:26 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

oh oh oh im almost there! #mochat9:26 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

What about them feels off to you? I feel JUNO’s titles are just as jaunty as the film itself. #mochat9:27 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

no, I agree, they seemed forcedly “awesome” #MoChat9:27 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Do I need to be drinking something stronger than chai? #mochat9:28 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

RT : Ill get heat for this, but I think Finchers Girl with the Dragon Tattoo titles were too disconnected from the film. #MoChat9:28 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

I agree, TGWTDT titles are pretty different to the film that follows. #mochat9:28 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

IMO in hindsight they feel forced. They fit its quirky nature & Juno’s character but not the weight of subject matter #mochat9:28 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

you’re not alone in the assessment of the Dragon Tattoo titles – I was surprised by how restrained Fincher was in the movie #moChat9:28 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

They ended and it just felt like the trailers were over & now the film’s starting. #mochat9:28 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

I have the same feelings with that one. They work great on it’s own, not so much as the opening of that film #mochat9:29 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

just because you posted those Die Hard titles thrice. That’s all 🙂 YES #mochat9:29 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

yes i think so #mochat9:29 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

I think they nail the internal psyche of Rooney Mara’s portrayal of Salander, esp when compared to Noomi… #mochat9:29 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

two times! One because someone said the link didnt work. And the other was Die Hard 1 & the other was 2. #mochat9:30 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Well it was Die Hard, and then Die Hard 2. 😛 #mochat9:30 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

…but nothing else in the film is as frantic, editorial or visual. It’s anachronistic to rest of direction #moChat9:31 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

see now what I want to know is how long they got for the Die Hard titles compared to yours. #mochat9:31 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

So who here has worked on title sequences? What was the project & how was the process? #mochat9:31 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Hmmm. Well, I think they work. #mochat9:31 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Lemony Snicket had some of the most memorable end titles I’ve seen http://t.co/6LAfiO2J #mochat9:31 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

i thought the titles for Kiss Kiss Bang Bang were done well, but im a retard #mochat9:31 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Yes! Exactly. Stand-alone, though, fantastic work. #mochat9:32 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

That’s the beauty of it all 🙂 I think they’re fantastic.. just for another flick. #mochat9:32 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Our process on POI was interesting. Editor strung together selects for 2 days while we tested treatment & transitions #moChat9:33 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Please fight with a different hashtag. #mochat9:33 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

I’ve done three, each for broadcast drama. Working on fourth now. Process has been fantastic. Love doing them. #MoChat9:33 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

I’ve done a couple features and a slew of shorts, generally working directly with the director or a producer. #mochat9:34 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Always lots of testing and stringing stuff together here too. That parts pretty great though I find. #MoChat9:34 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

‘s was a SXSW winner this year. http://t.co/Jk6Sq6aZ #mochat9:35 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

What have you been shooting / posting on? #MoChat9:35 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Were you working from the original show sequence? Or entirely new? #mochat9:35 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Never worked on any and never realised it was as quick a turnaround as these guys are saying! Astonishing! #mochat9:35 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

I worked on mad men, boardwalk, rubicon, terminator salvation, human target, hell on wheels. Every process is different. #mochat9:35 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Thx guys. RT : was a SXSW winner this year. http://t.co/n2SeyF46 #MoChat9:36 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

We built out framework that could be used on any shot – tracking & constrained to a grid, held together by expressions #mochat9:36 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Rubicon had the best open title i’ve seen for a tv series recently. Great look at the process here: http://t.co/vugSuIyt #mochat9:36 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

really really loved Les Blues De Ramville. It’s been helping me get through the NHL lockout. #mochat9:36 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

no duct tape? #mochat9:36 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Could you mention some we’re heard of? 😉 #mochat9:37 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Drops mic. Walks away. #mochat ;P9:37 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

wow that’s a very cool group of work #mochat9:37 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Wow! What was the Mad Men process like? I love that one! #mochat9:37 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Rubicon was terrific. #MoChat9:37 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

This is off topic but Wall-E end credits are some that absolutely blew me away: http://t.co/LQ8kClCy #mochat9:37 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

they gave us original sequence w optional selects to start off with – we argued against doing any big camera moves #moChat9:38 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

deservedly so 😉 #MoChat9:38 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Ha. Thx. RT : really really loved Les Blues De Ramville. Its been helping me get through the NHL lockout. #MoChat9:38 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

ill concur with you. i loved them. im biased though, thats one of my all time favorite movies >_< #mochat9:38 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

…but with a few days left they requested the Trapcode Form transitions. I got pulled off to figure those out #moChat9:39 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

RT : deservedly so 😉 #MoChat9:39 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

niiiiice. The Mad Men titles fascinate me, as well. never grow old. #MoChat9:39 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

You expanded on the original really well I thought. Great ‘delicate’ graphic look. #mochat9:39 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

What you did with that plugin is amazing. #mochat9:40 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

never get to edit but the time that we sat in at the FCP suite stringing them out was the most fun, almost like magic! #moChat9:40 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

I agree, Mad Men is one of those shows where I never fast forward through the credits, even after 5 seasons. #mochat9:41 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

thanks! We studied ‘s work on Terminator Salvation like crazy. he’s the real mad genius #moChat9:41 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Agreed. RT : wow thats a very cool group of work #MoChat9:41 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

The Rubicon titles are great. Nice work! How many people worked on them? #mochat9:42 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Since I’m actually a designer, I got to work on my first title sequence this year, though the process began last Oct. #mochat9:42 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

RT : Also, if you didn’t already know, has a fantastic site devoted to title design. #mochat9:42 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

The constant in nearly everything I have done is there is never as much time or money as you’d like. Forces creative solutions. #mochat9:42 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Is it done and out? #MoChat9:43 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

For those who’ve worked on indie/short titles, how did you get the job? Did you have an existing relationship with the director? #mochat9:43 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

What’s the topic? #mochat9:43 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

french dinning and fine wine #mochat9:44 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Q for – where would you like to explore more on title design if you had bigger budget/more time? #moChat9:44 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

I knew the director and worked for free :p bad gig, won’t work with him again. #mochat9:44 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Hear hear. RT : The constant is there is never as much time or money as youd like. Forces creative solutions. #MoChat9:44 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

oh good about time #mochat9:44 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Good question! RT : For those who’ve worked on indie/short titles, how did you get the job?… #mochat9:45 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

I think that’s every job I’ve ever worked on. #mochat9:45 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

No idea! I should probably find out if they released it. #mochat9:45 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Usually word-of-mouth, which then leads to a friendship and more work. #mochat9:46 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Our budgets wouldn’t cover craft for some of the bigger productions. It’s crazy what you have to come up with sometime. #MoChat9:46 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

True dat. #mochat9:46 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

rubicon had 2 of us designing, and 3 animating, editor, producer, and direcor, If I remember correctly. #mochat9:46 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Love to see it. #MoChat9:46 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

well we know how much of a lush you are so we are accommodating you tonight >_< #mochat9:47 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

you’re better than me… I skip the Mad Men titles sometimes! I guess that is allowed? #mochat9:47 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

for all of you who have worked on title sequences, what has been the range of the budget? #mochat9:47 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Here’s some of the lessons I learned while working on the Person Of Interest titles: http://t.co/3V8lSUpx #moChat9:48 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

RT : Here’s some of the lessons I learned while working on the Person Of Interest titles: http://t.co/3V8lSUpx #moChat9:49 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

I wish we had time for more research and exploration of techniques early on. Definitely what I enjoy most. #mochat9:49 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Check your email! #mochat9:49 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Those are great. #mochat9:49 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

TBH I only rewatch the greatest ones, and usually only for a few seasons. Dexter titles better than show now #MoChat9:49 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

but to be honest, I think the best results sometimes come out of necessity from small budgets and tight schedules. #mochat9:50 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

01: There is a great camera animation plugin for After Effects, it’s called Cinema 4D. – oddernod here here!! #mochat9:50 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

ive only done little short things for local film competitions, usually with a 48hour turn around #mochat9:50 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Knowledge! RT : Heres some of the lessons I learned while working on the Person Of Interest titles: http://t.co/EU05zikr #mochat9:50 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

lol #mochat9:50 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Constraints are a good thing. It’s just that sometimes things are _too_ constrained. #mochat9:51 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Enough to pay 2 animators for two weeks, an editor for 3 days, and an awesome styleframe designer for a day? #moChat9:51 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

RT : Heres some of the lessons I learned while working on the Person Of Interest titles: http://t.co/eLImMrpq #mochat9:52 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Those of you who’ve worked on titles, share links if you can! #mochat9:52 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Totally agree. We had Maya/Nuke job w 11 people & similar job w 3 C4D/AE people. Eye-opening to see C4D MacGuyver thru! #moChat9:52 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

I shot and edited the opening credits for this. Three days nonstop on a LA roof: http://t.co/DrBlKuhN #mochat9:53 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

could you please explain this “If you’re working on something for broadcast, plan for a textless version from the start.” #mochat9:54 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

: lulz, just finished my first title seq and uploading it now as a preview leak per the director. stand by.” #mochat9:54 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Haha I was kidding around honestly…. but sure. #Mochat who has used TEfx in title sequences?9:55 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Most networks need international version w all the text removed. We didn’t know, and we had a LOT of text in that one 🙂 #moChat9:55 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

I love working in small teams. I could never do feature film VFX or anything where I could only do one small part. #mochat9:57 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

We’re just about out of time for tonight’s #MoChat. Any last question or words of wisdom?9:57 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

One feature gig came from a UPM I worked w/prev who became a producer on Lauren Bacall’s last film: http://t.co/jAPvIEhF #mochat9:57 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

ohh, I see, so they can add the text on their language I suppose. Would be great if the same company did all languages #mochat9:58 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Same here. We fight tooth and nail to keep the big projects to a small team. Easy to track and trade assets back & forth #moChat9:58 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Any suggestions for for 2013? #mochat9:58 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

So after #mochat I’ll be hanging out on Google+ with a few cool guys from the C4D + AE world. Come on by if you want to see 2mill particles9:58 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

If you could redesign any movie/series title sequence, which one would you love to get your hands on? #mochat9:59 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Bring Saul Bass back from the dead & interview him? #mochat9:59 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Hopefully I have one for you. 🙂 #MoChat10:00 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

I think we’ll revisit title design again. #mochat10:00 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

nothing in the world sounds less interesting than having to do language versioning on a sequence. let them do it! #mochat10:00 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Trying our best. #mochat10:00 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

I don’t know how the heck they would rebuild some of the POI titles w/o the AE files. What a nightmare! #moChat10:01 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

I’d love to do a bond sequence some day. #mochat10:01 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012

Good! Keep me posted. #mochat10:01 PM ET Dec 4th, 2012
