Great to know: Ian Albinson

ArtoftheTitle.com founder and editor-in-chief Ian Albinson is a leading global authority on the art and craft of film and television title design. At this year’s South by Southwest (SXSW) Music and Media Conference and Festival in Austin, Texas, Ian produced and presented the fascinating video embedded here, which is entitled “A Brief History of Title Design.” Of the production, Stephanie Murq of Mediabistro’s UnBeige and LiquidTreat.com writes:

“In less than three minutes, he takes viewers from the title card for D.W. Griffith’s Intolerance (1916) to the Tokyo fever dream opening of Enter the Void (2009), pausing along the way to pay respects to the title sequences of everything from Singing in the Rain to Dexter.”

As regularly noted by Motionographer and many others, Ian’s dedication to this unique artform continues. His article presenting all of the 2011 Emmy nominations for “Outstanding Main Title Design” is available here.
