 ‘In screen’ title task.

In screen titles are ones that are physically in the world of the film, rather than added on after the filming.  The ‘thing’ carrying the title is often directly related to the name/title coming up. Good examples of these are here:

http://www.artofthetitle.com/title/almost-famous/

http://www.artofthetitle.com/title/gentlemen-broncos/

Your task is to create a short piece of film with the text at the bottom of this page embedded into it.

Or

‘Added later’ title task

‘Added later’ titles are ones that are animated against the pre-shot film at a later date.  The images the text appears in front of often is directly related to the name/title that is coming up.  Good examples of these are here:

http://www.artofthetitle.com/title/olive-kitteridge/

http://www.artofthetitle.com/title/up-in-the-air/

(from about 1min 20ish)

Your task is to create a short piece of film with the text at the bottom of this page added onto it appropriately.

Quote for titles:

“The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it.”
