POST 348: Title Design (Formerly DC 362)

Due to COVID-19, Spring in-class sections will be conducted online. Please contact your instructor for more information.

This course explores the relationship between film and typography through an analysis of title design production in film, television, animation, and games. By studying examples from film and television history and the creative process behind those productions, students will develop an understanding of how to interpret and use typography to create narrative exposition on screen. Students will gain an appreciation and skill for working with text, image, and sound within time-based media that will add value, clarity, and sophistication to multimedia projects.

ANI 101 or ANI 201 or VFX 200 is a prerequisite for this class.
