Part of a series of video interviews with title designers for Submarine Channel’s title design project Forget the Film, Watch the Titles.
Garson Yu is the founder and creative director of yU+co – a motion design company in L.A. responsible for numerous eye-catching title sequences. To name but two: the innovative animated end credit sequence for ‘300‘ and the cleverly embedded opening credits for much-discussed 6-minute opening sequence of Watchmen. We asked Yu about past and current trends in title design and he talks about his favorite title sequence, Se7en. (5’32”)
