Brazil / Title Sequence

I can’t believe I didn’t know about Art of the Title until now. It is a fantastic site chronicling film title sequences and, if you are into films at all, you will be stuck over there for awhile. I had to watch the titles from Brazil as it’s possibly my favourite film of all time (top three anyways), and when I did, I noticed something for the first time.

Below is the sequence of frames that caught my eye – this perfectly illustrates the creativity present throughout the film. A man walks by a window and as he passes it the window explodes and instead of simply jump-cutting to the explosion there is a hand-painted animation of the man exploding for like 7 frames! I love stuff like this – going the extra mile to really sell the illusion in a low-budget/hand-made kinda way. Take a look:

  • Great catch. Yeah, Art of the Title is dope.

  • Nice site but it’s not the first one. For get The Film Match the Titles was the first with this idea
    http://mmbase.submarinechannel.com/titlesequences/
    Besides that this one nicked some of Forget the film.. site to.

  • Aggy

    The whole of the movie is a design masterpiece in my opinion. The 1940’s view of the future from the prop making through to the posters used to dress the sets.

    Brilliant.

  • ^yes!!

    jorrit, its not the first but what i like about it is you can download the sequences high res.

  • I’m going to have to check my DVDs now. I was just watching this the other day and I could have sworn it WAS just a jump cut!

    …I’m such a nerd.

    • i always thought so too, discovering the painted frames was exciting
