Wow! Great link, thanks.
August 6th, 2008 @ 3:23 pm
thanks but what i wanna know is if you really DO work for the FOX Show Fringe? :D
August 6th, 2008 @ 3:31 pm
Lol. Stranger than Fiction and Dawn of the Dead.. <3

I never noticed the effects until now. Pretty awesome.

Thanks Andrew!
August 6th, 2008 @ 4:18 pm
The Stranger Than Fiction effects are along the same design as the sequence in Fight Club in Edward Norton's apartment. I always liked that effect.

Thanks for yet another point of inspiration.

Looks like the title sequence from "El Don" (about 1/3 of the way down the page) might have used some Riot Gear elements. There's some ink splatter effects in there too...every now and then I see something that makes me wonder just how many people are watching Andrew's tutorials. Either way, it's still pretty awesome.

August 6th, 2008 @ 5:21 pm
Awesome site! Gotta show us how to do a few of these, Andrew ;)
August 6th, 2008 @ 5:30 pm
Thanks Andrew, this is exactly what I was thinking to write you about and you just linked me to it.

Great stuff. Thanks!
August 6th, 2008 @ 8:34 pm
Nice site, thanks for the link. We actually just put a spot together based on the 2004 Dawn of the Dead Opening editing treatment for our local Football team. Opening film sequences have always been great. One of my favorites is the opening to Fight Club. Great Sequence!!
August 6th, 2008 @ 8:39 pm
They don't have it listed, but the closing credits for Shoot 'Em Up are fantastic!
August 6th, 2008 @ 8:55 pm
i like "The Kingdom's" title sequence its cool
August 6th, 2008 @ 9:06 pm
Love the shoot-em up stuff!
August 6th, 2008 @ 9:28 pm
Nice.. thanks for sharing :)
August 6th, 2008 @ 10:51 pm
Congrats for new website and all da luck!!!...keep up the amazing work Andrew and team!!!
August 6th, 2008 @ 11:16 pm
Great site.

Also I really like the end of the Bourne movies. (Mostly Identity) It's a very simple, yet an effective effect.
August 6th, 2008 @ 11:32 pm
That's Cool. Apparently the people that did El Don [2008] on there are big costomers of Video Copilot. lol

Hi Andrew,
thx for the tipp. It´s really a nice archiv for inspiration.

August 7th, 2008 @ 3:17 am
awesome, but i think we would be interested more in how to make similar effects as in the movie (The mummy3)Some tips Andrew?
August 7th, 2008 @ 4:22 am
more film titles worth watching:
August 7th, 2008 @ 5:40 am
Cool and helpful, I added to my favorites:)

Thanks Andrew
August 7th, 2008 @ 6:17 am

There's so much good stuff out there.

Stranger than fictions beginning sequence is the reason I was sucked into the movie...

August 7th, 2008 @ 7:18 am
Thanks for the link A.K., some very sweet stuff there!
Did you ever watch Sisters? That movie scared the crap out of me when I saw it 35 years ago.
I like the end titles for "Iron Man" and "Stranger then fiction" and I like the way they did "We're here to help"!

August 7th, 2008 @ 9:00 am
That awesome site I've always looking for! Thanks!!
August 7th, 2008 @ 9:58 am
Yeah - yeah, the title sequence "Stranger Than Fiction [2006]" inspire me to look closer on pendulum expression =). Must to create something in this style.

Looks like a cool site. I've always been interested in the art of titling. Some of the recent Spidermans have had some interesting titles.
August 7th, 2008 @ 12:05 pm
@ Kramer

Now i know for a fact you liked El Don, if for some strange reason you didn't see it you probably should.
August 7th, 2008 @ 12:16 pm
very very cool. thanks for posting.
August 7th, 2008 @ 12:57 pm
Andrew, This is a cool site. I've been following it for a few weeks and have added to my inspiration list. I was planning on mentioning it on my blog but you beat me to it damn it.
August 7th, 2008 @ 1:43 pm
The 300 Credits is the best I've ever seen.
August 7th, 2008 @ 2:28 pm
Thought I'd post a thank you to Andrew and VideoCopilot, as well as everyone else who has commented about the Art of the Title site I run. I'm glad you're enjoying it.

My goal with the site is commentary and discussion on a broad range of title designs for film and television, with a focus on quality, not quantity.
(The site requires the latest version of QuickTime from Apple)

Suggestions and feedback are most welcome.
Matt in MO.
August 7th, 2008 @ 4:47 pm
You should totally try to do a stranger than fiction type effect... oh wait. you did... it was called 3D Shadows haha. Awesomeness!
August 7th, 2008 @ 5:48 pm
woh-ooh!thanks boss!I llllllllllove it!
August 7th, 2008 @ 7:29 pm
The greatest title sequence ever is the one in Ghost in the Shell 2:Innocence, hands down!
Though the actual text is presented in a rather simple way, the sequence is unbelievably intense and artistic, as is the whole movie.
August 7th, 2008 @ 9:31 pm
Hey Ian,
Great site, keep up the nice work.

Thanks Andrew For the Web.

Greetings for Venezuela.
August 8th, 2008 @ 7:23 am
Thanks, and right back at you. Been a fan of this place for a while now.

I just love the cyclical idea of inspiring people with your work here, having them visit and become even more excited at Art of the Title, then creating the piece and submitting it to Art of the Title, which then brings folks back here!
August 8th, 2008 @ 7:54 am
Iron Man, 300 and Stranger Than Fiction are the coolest.
August 8th, 2008 @ 12:20 pm
Thanks for the site link. One that is not on there that I wish I knew more about is the Opening credits to Lord of War. Anyone know who produced it?

Daniel Silva
August 8th, 2008 @ 12:44 pm

I love your site. If you ever need help posting some updates I'd be more than glad to help you.

I'm very passionate about filmmaking and motion graphics so this site is nothing but joy for me to browse.
August 8th, 2008 @ 1:17 pm
Excellent source of inspiration, Thank you very much!
August 8th, 2008 @ 1:54 pm

The Lord of War sequence was created by L'E.S.T., who also produced a number of VFX shots for the film.

We're hoping to cover that sequence soon.
August 8th, 2008 @ 2:05 pm
@ Daniel Silva

Thanks for the offer. We're solid for the moment, but after the explosion of viewership from Andrew's post here, who knows what will happen!
August 9th, 2008 @ 11:29 pm
woow .. thats too great.
thank u sir .
Matt in MO.
August 10th, 2008 @ 6:50 am
I'm surprised they don't have this on there.
August 10th, 2008 @ 7:43 pm
@ Matt in MO.

It's on our master "to-do" list, but I'm not sure when we'll cover it. It's a nice sequence though.
August 11th, 2008 @ 4:10 am
Thanks to u! Great stuff.... 5+
August 11th, 2008 @ 7:48 am
thanks :)
August 11th, 2008 @ 2:23 pm
Nice Link, Thank You
August 11th, 2008 @ 3:59 pm
don't forget the iRobot intro...
August 12th, 2008 @ 4:51 am
Actually, that's near the top of my list.
The guy who designed and animated it contacted me a while ago, and I'm working with him on materials for the post.
August 14th, 2008 @ 10:57 pm
So Cool. Thank Kramer.
August 21st, 2008 @ 4:27 pm
Hey man some of these tutorials can't be shortcuts like this
I mean I'm not sayin its bad im just sayin you need to slow down and go more in depth so we understand it and get it right o_o'' cause Ive watched this sucker 5 times and I can't get a shadow casted at all!
August 28th, 2008 @ 4:18 pm
The Titleanimation of Dawn of the Dead would be a good tutorial challenge :)

I have no real clue, how to reproduce this liquid blood looking type just in AE...

In 3d(Realflow,Maya) yes, but just in AE ?
April 20th, 2009 @ 12:02 am
Dear Andrew Kramer,

I know this goes against your rules (sorry).. but it would be so incredibly awesome if you could make a tutorial or some kind of "behind the scenes" in the creation of the Fringe title... every time i watch that i get chills. I think that the demographics that are attracted to this website and your sick tutorials are the same people that love that show and the work put into it.
That show inspired me to look into products like After Effect tutorials, which brought me here.. I'm kinda new to your website but it's now my homepage, I've see tutorials 1-58 and I'm planning on buying your 10 pack bundle, just once i get my next pay check... haha.

PS. Just so i don't look like a complete retard.. iMDB says Andrew Kramer is the main guy behind the Fringe title.. so I'm guessing your that A.K. .. if oddly not I'm sure with your skill you could recreate it.
May 16th, 2009 @ 7:10 am
thanks for the heads up
I watch movies just for the titles LOL
and I know "UFC countdown Special" uses Video Copilot elements
for their intro!!
