Forget the Film, Watch the Titles Database


Main title sequences for films have always held a very special place in my heart. From "The Good the Bad and The Ugly" (pictured below) to "City Slickers" and "XXX: State of the Union," title sequences have played an important role in setting a stylistic tone for a movie, or they're just there to totally blow your mind. Sometimes they're even better than the film.


That's why the SubmarineChannel, a non-profit production and online distribution platform, for motion graphic designers and interactive artists alike, created the "Forget the Film, Watch the Titles" database. Started in 1997 the online collection captures some of the most stunning and original film title sequences. Divided into four categories, Animation, Motion Graphics, Mixed Media, and 3D, the collection covers decades of film title magic.
