Friday Movie Night: Creative Inspiration

Friday night at our house is movie night... we rent a movie, order a pizza, and enjoy! Even though it's Friday, many times my creative juices are still flowing after a full day in the studio. So, as we get comfy on the couch to watch the movie, I'm all of a sudden very inspired to be creative. What is the inspiration, you ask? In many movies I love the movie titles and credits... sometimes even more than the movie itself!!

The type, the graphics, the styling, the animation-- the whole thing! I also marvel at how long it must have taken the production house to create some of the creative openings...

I think there should be a new category for the Oscars-- Most Creative Movie Title and Credits award. Then all these creative designers and animators would get recognized for their great work!

So, next time you watch a movie, make sure to pay attention to the opening titles and credits at the end. You never know where inspiration will hit you!
