Watch over 190 title sequences and interview with designers on http://watchthetitles.com Germany's most prolific title designer, Darius Ghanai has designed over 50 title sequences and posters for critically acclaimed European films such as Good Bye Lenin!, Perfume and Palermo Shooting. On a crispy sunny morning in May 2010, we visited the friendly and soft-spoken designer in his former studio located in Berlin's Mitte district, close to where Good Bye Lenin! was shot. We talked for hours about title design, surrounded by books, art, movie billboards, and a lifesize cardboard Elvis. Darius offers some great perspectives on title design and on the differences between the European and the American title design practice. The way European movies are produced and marketed differs significantly from how the American studio system works. Designers tend to have more creative control over more aspects of a film's promotion. It is not uncommon that designers are asked to create the titles, posters, and even a trailer... allowing them to create one consistent visual identy across all media. This video interview was first published as part of the Watch the Titles 2 DVD set, which also contains Darius' title sequences for Good Bye Lenin!, Palermo Shooting, and Die Tür (The Door).
