Above The Title...


We've talked about animation quite a lot here. About the actual character animation and even the importance of animated backgrounds...


But what about the importance of the Marquee? Or as some would call it...

"The Title Card"

This little piece of art sets the tone for the short you're about to see. In about two seconds an artist has to convey what is going to happen in the short you're about to watch.


So take a look at these and see if you feel that they're successful at it...













































Nice...

I always loved the "Title Cards".
They have some of the best artwork and to only to be used is an intro is a shame.

Honor--I hate that you spent so much time having to watch these shorts to get the title cards!

Thanks for sharing them.

A very nice variety of title cards! I love how the fonts are so important to the images, too.

I remember seeing those on the Disney Channel a long time ago. Nice entry.

Any one of those Title Cards would look great, framed on my office wall. Beautiful Art!

And, thanks to Kate's comment, I went back and checked out the text. She's right on.
