Dr Strangelove. Opening titles by Pablo Ferro

“Pablo Ferro has managed to create his own language which is burned into our minds’ eye. Thanks to credit titles for films such as Dr. Strangelove, Bullitt, Men in Black or The Thomas Crown Affair, he has become one of the definitive pillars of audiovisual design and a key reference for fans of the genre.”
This is an absolutely excellent breakdown of the title sequence of this seminal Kubrick film.
There’s also a great breakdown over at The Art of the Title.
Well done.

This is a montage of 300 movies edited into one epic trailer. After a while you begin to feel like this is actually every single movie trailer you’ve ever seen.
Well done / depressing.

“The Rescued Film Project discovers and processes 31 rolls of film shot by an American WWII soldier over 70 years ago.”
Pretty fantastic.
