After Effects – change of heart and my Saul Bass homage

Dear Blog,

I have had a change of heart…

I will keep you posted, but for now research!


Please watch to get in the mood –

Fantastic website to look at –


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

Website with a load of information about Saul Bass –

The Title Design of Saul Bass (quick visual examples) –

The Film Before the Film – – 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
