The Greatest Documentary Devoted to Film Titles
18 May 2004 | by frank_c_briggsSee all my reviews

Saul Bass the Greatest Designer America has ever given Birth.

This is the first film and/or video ever documented on the craft of film titles. No Film Title Designer has since tried to replicate SAUL BASS' overwhelming success with this documentary.

Examples are exemplary. And certainly shows why SAUL BASS is anointed the preeminent Film Title Designer to the World.

Unfortunately Title Design as a profession is not taught in a University or College. One has to learn this craft on the job from a master.

Clearly studying Saul Bass triumphs with these live action and graphic footage. Entices the viewer to imagine himself or herself in place of the Title Designer.

The imagery is visceral which touches the emotions.

Bass on Titles is full to the Brim of stunning imagery and technique. A lesson in Title Design not afforded by another means of communication.
