Daily Inspiration: Imagined “A History of the Title Sequence” Documentary Motion Graphics

Jurjen Versteeg is an interactive multimedia and audiovisual designer based in The Netherlands who developed this conceptual opening title sequence as part of his dissertation as a design student.

“My dissertation project is sort of like a title sequence about title sequences. You could perceive this film as a possible title sequence for a documentary about the history of title design,” says Versteeg in an interview with Forget the Film, Watch the Titles. The title pays homage to eight design pioneers who’s title designs influenced the evolution of the title sequence, including Georges Méliès (Un Voyage Dans La Lune), Saul Bass (Psycho), Maurice Binder (Dr. No), Stephen Frankfurt (To Kill A Mockingbird), Pablo Ferro (Dr. Strangelove), Richard Greenberg (Alien), Kyle Cooper (Se7en) and Danny Yount (Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang).

I love the way that Versteeg interprets the various styles of the title designers. The sound effects, tightly cropped editing and beautiful cinematography enhance the mood of this compelling title sequence. Check it out below, and more from Versteeg at his portfolio site here.
