The Cinematic Art of Title Design  

     At one time or another, try as one might, and as much you hate it ... everyone has come into a film late.  It happens.  If the time between showings isn't too long, you may even hang around to catch the beginning of the film again ... up to the point where you walked in the first time - not trying to scam a freebie movie or anything of the sort, but just  to catch what you missed.  There are some movies however you just don't EVER come in on after they've begun.  If you have an inkling you (or a guest) are going to be five minutes late, you just plan to catch the next show.  Years ago it was the James Bond and PINK PANTHER films. Well, actually it still IS the Bond films, because for all intents and purposes they're the only ones left  today where you can consistantly COUNT ON an elaborate, artistically designed and rendered Main Title Sequence.  For the most part in contemporary films (since the popularity of the STAR WARS-like "cold opening") it's been long lost. 



    In the early days of the silent "cinematograph" (circa late 1800s - early 1900s), simple cast / crew title cards were projected on screen before and after the film.  Eventually the single card was replaced by a sequence of cards set to music, and the concept of the "Main Title Sequence" was born.  When early television became cinema's greatest economic challenge, the studios responded with 3D, ultra-widescreen CinemaScope and highly stylized title sequences cut from the pop art vein of the day - in the hope such opening sequences (often following a huge orchestral Overture) would herald to the viewer a grandeur and scale you just couldn't enjoy on the 'ol Philco TV back home.  In the 1960s and 70s individual title artists like Saul Bass (PSYCHO, NORTH BY NORTHWEST), Maurice Binder (the James Bond films, CHARADE), Pablo Ferro (BULLITT - arguably THE coolest sequence ever, THE THOMAS CROWN AFFAIR) and Phill Norman (THREE DAYS OF THE CONDOR, KOJAK, SILVER STREAK) became as integral a part of a film's audience appeal as it's star and director.   The same with design companies such as Depatie/Freleng animation (A SHOT IN THE DARK, THE SATAN BUG), the Richard Williams Studio (THE RETURN OF THE PINK PANTHER), and the later R/Greenberg Associates (SUPERMAN, ALIEN, GHOSTBUSTERS, THE UNTOUCHABLES). 

     In the 1990s, one of R/Greenberg's best and brightest, Kyle Cooper, would branch out on his own then take the film and design worlds by storm with his now iconic titles to David Fincher's 1995 thriller SE7EN.  Following with equally impressive title sequences for THE ISLAND OF DR. MOREAU, SPIDER-MAN, DAWN OF THE DEAD, KISS KISS BANG BANG and others, Cooper would be hailed as the designer who signaled a return  the "old school" brand of artistry, albeit aided and abetted this time around by new millennial digital tricks of craft.

PABLO FERRO (1935 - )

      Pablo Ferro was born in 1935 in Antilla, Cuba.   His family would immigrate to New York where there as a teen he taught himself animation through one of the books of legendary Disney artist PRESTON BLAIR (FANTASIA).   He'd eventually work in commercial animation alongside Disney's BILL TYTLA, future Marvel Comics editor-in-chief STAN LEE, pop art legend-in-the-making FRED MOGUBGUB, and LEW SCHWARTZ (BATMAN).  In 1964, around the same time he designed the opening credit sequence for KUBRICK'S DR. STRANGELOVE, he founded PABLO FERRO FILMS.  In 1968 he created the innovative "split-screen" technique used not only for THE THOMAS CROWN AFFAIR's opening titles, but throughout the entire film to heighten it's narrative suspense. The technique would be one of the most imitated editing devices in the history of film.

SAUL BASS (1920 - 1996)

 




     SAUL BASS is not only the most lauded title designer in the history of cinema (his animated graphics openings to the films of ALFRED HITCHCOCK and MARTIN SCORCESE the stuff of legend), but arguably one of the most popular commercial ad/logo artists of the entire 60's pop art movement period, his AT&T, UNITED WAY, CONTINENTAL AIRWAYS and other brand icons recognized by hundreds of millions around the world.  

     Born in New York City in 1920, Bass' early design education was at the city's Art Student's League and Brooklyn College.  He entered film when director OTTO PREMINGER asked him to design the poster campaign for his 1954 Dorthy Dandridge musical CARMEN JONES.  Preminger was so impressed, he asked Bass to design a title sequence as well.  He would work on other Preminger films, but his most famous was certainly the most subtle - the stylized "cut and paste" animated titles to the director's THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN ARM (1955).  Detailing the harrowing tale of a jazz musician (Frank Sinatra) and his battle with drug addiction, the opening sequence featured credits racing up and down a series of white lines.  By the end of the sequence we come to realize the "white lines" were the veins within the arm of a heroin addict.  While some missed the visual analogy, It caused quite a stir with those who caught it. 

     In the 1960s Bass would go on to design some of ALFRED HITCHCOCK's most famous openings for films like PSYCHO, VERTIGO and NORTH BY NORTHWEST.  But our personal favorite from this era is the terrifyingly gorgeous "distorted mirrors" title sequence to John Frankenheimer's 1966 "Twilight Zone-ish" character study SECONDS.  Detailing the experiences of a wealthy man (Rock Hudson) given a new identity by a high tech corporation ... and his failure to escape his own psychological past, Bass' titles (set to a "horror-carnival"-like Jerry Goldsmith title theme) plays and feels like a nightmarish fever dream.  In the 1980s and early 90s, directors paying homage to the films of Bass' era would commission him to design their opening sequences as well - the most notable being his collaborations with MARTIN SCORCESE on GOODFELLAS, CASINO, CAPE FEAR and THE AGE OF INNOCENCE.

KYLE COOPER
(1962 - )

     When the 1995 thriller SE7EN exploded across the world's theater screens, it not only finally ushered it's director DAVID FINCHER (who'd been toiling in the FX and directing biz over 20 years) into the "A" list cinema hierarchy, but did the same for title sequence designer KYLE COOPER.  Perfectly distilling the film's elusive "Gothic classicism meets new aged Goth"  look, tone and feel down into similarly tonal but brief Opening and Ending credit sequences, Cooper's images (set to the music of Nine Inch Nails and David Bowie) instantly became some of thrillerdoms most remembered iconic images, up there with the first appearance of the shark in JAWS and Linda Blair's spinning head in THE EXORCIST.  Like Fincher himself Cooper too was a 20 year "overnight" sensation.

     A fan of the Saul Bass, Maurice Binder school of design, he studied at Yale then entered advertising, eventually becoming a creative director with R/GA (then known as R/Greenberg Associates) - the agency responsible for title sequences and ad campaigns for movies such as ALTERED STATES, ALIEN, SUPERMAN, XANADU and GHOSTBUSTERS.  After the success of SE7EN, Cooper would co-found IMAGINARY FORCES design company, taking with him a number of R/GA artists.  As Imaginary Forces grew in prestige with title sequences for films such as THE ISLAND OF DR. MOREAU, FLUBBER, THE MUMMY, SPIDER-MAN and DAWN OF THE DEAD, Cooper would find himself more involved in the business aspect of things rather than actual designing.  Desiring to return to his "first love", he founded a new company, PROLOGUE FILMS, in 2003.
