Dear Blog,

Fantastic website to look at – http://annyas.com/screenshots/

 

Saul Bass works…

 “My initial thoughts about what a title can do was to set mood and the prime underlying core of the film’s story,to express the story in some metaphorical way.

I saw the title as a way of conditioning the audience, so that when the film actually began, viewers would already have an emotional resonance with it”

– Saul Bass

The Film Before the Film – http://vimeo.com/60964497 – Short film about title sequences.

 

“Saul Bass wasn’t just an artist who contributed to the first several minutes of some of the greatest movies in history —

in my opinion his body of work qualifies him as one of the best filmmakers of this,or any other time.“

– Steven Spielberg
