Here's a cool little pseudo-documentary on Opening Credits...


We've previously highlighted the occasional spectacle that is a film's credit sequence by calling attention to The Art of the Title Sequence, dedicated to stylish opening and ending credits sequences that bookend the films we all now and love. In addition, we've taken a dive into one of the more iconic credits sequence artists, Saul Bass, and his legacy of work on films from Alfred Hitchcock and more. Now another interesting video called The Film Before the Film, which is the result of a research project from Berlin Technical Art University students Nora Thoes and Damian Pérez, dives into the history of opening credits. Watch below!

The 12-minute video gives time to Saul Bass while also looking at the trends in credits sequences from digitally designed titles, to throwbacks to the old titles of decades past. There's also highlights from many of the famous credit sequences we know today from classics like King Kong to popular films of today like The Avengers. Honestly, I always enjoy a good opening and/or closing credits sequence from the most complex and meticulously designed sequences like Catch Me If You Can to The Usual Suspects, which is subtle and simple.
