AIGA event: Motion Graphics "Title Sequence" Gurus Talk

TUESDAY 16 FEBRUARY 2010 6:30–9:00PM

Call it Poetry in Motion—those short-form bursts of tightly choreographed type and compressed narrative that create our first impressions of a movie or TV show. And though they’ve been around since the advent of commercial cinema, never before have title sequences been as much in the limelight as they are today. “The Reel World: New York” offers up a rare opportunity to see the Big Apple’s greatest motion-graphics gurus on the same stage describing the methods and meanings behind this ever-evolving art form.

Randy Balsmeyer of Big Film Design.
Through his long standing relationships with The Coen Brothers, Spike Lee, David Cronenberg, and the late Robert Altman, Randy has yielded some of the most memorable titles sequences in film history.

Rama Allen of Digital Kitchen
As a Creative Director at Digital Kitchen, Rama will be speaking about their Emmy nominated titles for True Blood and how they approach Television sequences differently from those in Film.

Josh Norton of Big Star
Having created titles for recent hit docs: Food Inc. and Gonzo, Josh will talk about the workings and process of title design from a creative team in a small, young company.

Karin Fong of Imaginary Forces
As a founding member and director at Imaginary Forces(NY), Karin's reel includes an impressive body of work including Terminator Salvation, The Pink Panther 2, Ray, Definitely Maybe and Charlotte’s Web to name a few.

The Members Series is an ongoing series of events that are open to the general public, but cater to Member's concerns for content, networking and price. These events will be comprised of workshops and how-to sessions, as well as more social evenings geared toward raucous fun, like this one. Want to know more? Come and see for yourself!
