Opening Credits Finally Get Their Respect
Did you ever realize the time and dedication of the opening to a movie? Sure most of the budget and talent for movies goes into hiring the big name stars and blowing up oil tankers, but there really is an art to some opening credits. It sets up the movie and gets you ready for the ride your about to take.
This blog goes into the detail of all the hard work that goes into the credits. From the type of camera they used to the way they shot it or storyboarded out the ideas. It’s incredible the detail that often gets overlooked.
One of my favorite opening credits is to Tenacious D and the Pick of Destiny, it’s so epic and rocking and I love the devilish Tarot card theme.
