Type ‘Animated Title Sequence’ into Google and you’ll get 2,150,000 results which is a measure of the popularity and impact it has. Distilling a movie or tv series offer into a few seconds needs skills in storyboarding, editing, and an acute understanding of the audiences tolerances and expectations.

Take the Bond films as an example, and how they evolved, and how the audience’s expectations were raised each time, making it a status symbol to be asked to make one. For something so short there are often large teams and sometimes large budgets, and always large pressures.

We look under the bonnet of the film title sequence; and ask leading proponents how you get commissioned, who is in control, what are the pressures, and how much creative leeway do you have?

Confirmed speakers:
Paul Donnellon, Nic Benns and Maria Manton.

Chaired by Saint John Walker, Creative Skillset.
