title sequence

We all love movies. They are a way to relax and enjoy the art of video. One of the most important portions of a movie is the title sequence. The title sequence is the first thing the viewer sees and sets the tone for the entire movie. There are a few things to keep in mind when creating a title sequence. The mood, what is trying to be said? Is the following film to be serious, scary, funny, etc? Next, timing. This is probably the most important. This determines when images, type, and music occur at the proper time.

The sequence is to tell a story in itself. It is not suppose to give away the movie but it should get the viewer prepared in what they are about to see. Two movie sequences that I highly recommend viewing that really tell a story and set a mood are "Zombieland" and "Se7en." These are two very good sequences that I believe were both constructed in After Effects.
