"The arrival of After Effects has democratized special effects and the creation of motion graphics. And it was also responsible for the revival of the film title sequence." - Laurent Brett http://watchthetitles.com http://vimeo.com/channels/watchthetitles http://Twitter.com/watchthetitles http://Pinterest.com/watchthetitles Not only is he the most productive title designer working in France today, Laurent Brett is also the only designer we ever met, or know of, who has had a puppet made of himself. He's a chameleon of a designer, able to master any style and technique -- be it full CG or live action VFX. Laurent Brett talks about his Main Titles, from the elaborate 3D sequence he did for Hostage to the cutesy live action Main Titles for French short Jeanine. He talks about his heroes, graphic designers such as Peter Saville and Vaughan Oliver, who were both very prominent in the 1980s and 1990s creating numerous well-known record covers has been a major big influence on graphic as well as motion design in the 1980s and 1990s. A favorite part is when Laurent references the Main Titles done by Jean Fouchet and Michel Saignes in the 1960s and 1970s for French comedy's, crazy experimental title sequences that seem very psychedelic, judged by today's standards. This video interview was first published as part of the Watch the Titles 2 DVD set, which also contains Laurent's Main Titles for the Saul Bass and Maurice Binder-inspired OSS 117: Le Caire, Les Chevaliers du Ciel and L'Ennemi Intime. We filmed in his office in Studio Sabotage in Paris' 10th district, also known as the film district.
