“The Film Before The Film” is a short documentary that traces the evolution of title design through the history of film. This short film was a research project at the BTK (Berliner Technische Kunsthochschule) that takes a look at pioneers like Saul Bass, Maurice Binder and Kyle Cooper by showing the transitions from early film credits to the inclusion of digital techniques, a resurgence of old-school style, and filmmakers’ love of typography in space. After watching this short documentary, you’ll have a whole new appreciation for the incredible amount of work that goes into the first few minutes of your favorite films.
