Art of the Title: A Brief History of Title Design

This is a fun little video for those who like title design (and who doesn’t?). It’s a presentation video for the SXSW “Excellence in Title Design” competition screening which features brief moments from over 70 movies and tv show’s opening credits (or title design if you will). It is a bit interesting that some titles are not even featured in the video, but the person who created this is obviously way more creative then I am, so I’ll assume I am an idiot that doesn’t get it (much like I do with Harry Potter). A full list of movies and shows can be found just below the video.  Props to for a great job. Enjoy!

Before They Were Famous: Leslie Mann Coke Commercial

While this is apparently “Not Final Version”, it is what I remember watching on TV as a kid. Coca-Cola has always been known for its amazing adverts and marketing campaigns and it seems they hit the nail on the head with this one. The commercial features a then unknown Leslie Mann and King Kong (who likely hadn’t worked since the 80s and just figured a job is a job). Both careers would remain obscure until the mid 2000s when King Kong married Judd Apatow and went on to star in movies such as The 40 Year Old Virgin and Knocked Up while Leslie Mann would star in Peter Jackson’s mega-hit King Kong…Hmm, I might have that backwards…No, I think I’m right. Enjoy the commercial
