Movie Titles 2 Die 4: The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo (2011)

The David Fincher (of such films like "Seven") - has now directed ‘The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo’ one of the most deliciously anticipated remakes (from the European version) in some time. Why I'm even bringing this to your attention is from the design elements made up in the title sequence. Incredible. The cover of Led Zeppelin‘s ‘Immigrant Song’ was ably revamped by none other than Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross.

"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.

HUGE, like something very gigantic.

I have a number of reasons that I'm addicted to the internet and all its social tenticles. First, and foremost, is the web is a haven for insanely bad content. No, it's not always pornographic content. Though admitted during this trailer you will be expecting someone awkward soft-core edit. There are so many little gems to choose from it could be a full-time passion that would never end.

Very few of you will remember the television show SeaQuest DSV. However, Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus – potentially brillant work reminds me of that time. SeaQuest was filmed on the back lot of Orlando's very own Universal Studios. I worked on set in the AV playback department learning that Micheal "Jester" Ironside is a totally awesome guy, and that Roy "Don't tease him about Jaws or he'll go mental on you in front of everone at the craft services table" Scheider is a washed-up douche bag, God rest his soul.
