Why watch a movie when you can just watch the titles? Browse title sequences by designer and read interesting backstory and discussion on the art of making a title sequence.

I will post this again because it's appropriate: Enter the Void (epilepsy warning)

Nice! Titles for se7en and splice playing simultaneously makes for interesting music, too.

Thanks for posting.

Of course, he's most well known for The Partridge Family titles.

Call me a pleb but I really like the modern fashion of skipping the movie titles and going straight into the movie. I find sitting through the credits before a movie starts kind of boring, to be honest, no matter how fancily they're presented.

Awesome. I'm a huge fan of ArtOfTheTitle.com (previously), so I'm looking forward to digging through this site.

I have this love/hate relationship with Digital Kitchen: Love for creating one of the most evocative opening titles in TV (True Blood) and hate for stealing my idea (FROM MY BRAIN NO LESS) for the opening to a A Picture Of Dorian Grey comic adaption and using it it to open Dexter.
