Designing and Animating a Title Sequence: You had me at the Opening Credits!


Creative title sequences date back to the beginning of filmmaking and continue to be a crucial part of the art form. In this 2-day workshop, we will investigate the history of title sequences and take an in-depth look at the different genres and styles that have influenced today’s movie title sequences. We will then dive into a practical demonstration using After-Effects, applying some of these stylistic approaches to create compelling and professional-level transitions and custom FX to make a title sequence that audiences will not forget.
