"The sequence creative director Danny Yount, a self-taught Emmy-winning designer/director produced main titles for Six Feet Under and The Grid while at Digital Kitchen. He currently resides at Prologue Films and has created titles for Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Iron Man and RockNRolla." ~ The Art Of The Title

I think from a graphic design standpoint that I love the most is digital effects of traditional media. I LOVE the pencils and ink feel. The stop edits are perfect to transition to and the background tone of the parchment like paper is perfect to assign age and classical feel to the drawings. Lastly, I like the font usage as it feel very hand scripted but not elegant, a roughen style of text which sets a gritty masculine mood.

You thoughts? Send me your favorite trailer and tell me what you love about it.
