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).

However, knock off toys are something that you can’t really appreciate until you are older and really see how funny these things truly are. So with that I give you a few amazing…ly bad knock offs. Enjoy! New Style Ninja Tortoise – The villain in this series is Grinder….it’s a more adult themed show. Space Boys 3 – This upsets me on so many levels. Super Robot Transformable Tomas – Some serious shit is gonna go down at Shining Time Station… Specialman – It could just be a coincidence that the Special Olympics mascot looks a lot like Superman. Super Marian – In the defense of this …

History Lesson: Chart Showing Which Superheroes Have Been Portrayed By Which Actors

This is a cool little chart that shows the actors who portrayed superheroes in film, tv, voice, etc. It even links up actors who have played multiple superheroes too (how nice of them!). Feel free to print off a copy for yourself and hang it in your bedroom. However, if you do that, make sure to put it in a frame because hanging posters is immature, but hanging posters in a frame? Oh, that’s classy as hell. Enjoy the chart! *For a higher resolution version click here.
