I forgot about how great this title sequence is. I found it whilst looking for some cool old James Bond sequences and did not realise how relevant this sequence is to the After Effects work we've been doing. Chances are that it was done on After Effects. And it must have been extremely detailed! It's amazing what can be done with the time, patience and knowledge of that program.
Film title sequences are definitely a great example of design for screen. They have to be effective for a projection in the cinema as well as for watching the film on DVD or on telly at home. However, with the rate of development in the technology of screen cinematics, making films effective for all types of screen based media is becoming much less of a tricky task for graphic designers.
I'll definitely look at some old Bond title sequences also.
Be seeing you!
