Over Christmas I will be creating title cards for a short film which will air on S4C and be screened at Ffresh Ffilm Festival 2013. The film will be set in the Welsh Valleys in 1960 so I will be creating some Film Noir title credits.
Ive always had an interest in cartoon title credits, the likes of which you'd find on an old UPA or Ren and Stimpy cartoon. However, its never occurred to me to ever reference old film title cards and so far my research is taking me to some pretty awesome art work.
Here's some of my favourite images Ive found during my research for this project:
I just love the print of the church and the shapes
Some cleverly executed designs from some Film Noir title cards
More imaginative text. I especially focussed on the church tower shape in the centre as the film is set in an old village where the chapel is central to the story.
