The Art of the Title Sequence

Cool website collecting title sequences of movies.

“Remember when your heart sank just a little when you realized the Pink Panther movie wasn’t a cartoon?

Then, only a few years later, seeing Edward Gorey’s eerily fantastic opening to ‘Mystery!’ capped with Vincent Price’s name on a headstone had your head spinning at the thought of the kind of stories those etchings could tell…if only the show was based on those illustrations.

Well, we want to see more of that. So watch and remember and create. And if you’ve got something to contribute, send it along.”

Ryan Sims revived his website justwatchthesky.

The scope is narrow: An exercise in documenting words in the music I listen to with color and type. The constraints are simple: (1) Only use Georgia (serif) or Helvetica (sans) and (2) try to post as often as possible. We’ll see how long the experiment will last, but for now, I’m enjoying it. It’s like a music blog/splash page hybrid.
