"THE HATEFUL EIGHT" Deconstructing Tarantino's Edgy Movie Trailer Graphics

How'd They Do That?

It's Groundhog Day! Much as we'd love to peek out and see our shadows to justify scrambling back to our comfy burrow nest, and maybe rewatch "Groundhog Day" for the seemingly 115th time, we are nonetheless inspired to demo some tips and tricks, over and over again.

It's Groundhog Day! Much as we'd love to peek out and see our shadows to justify scrambling back to our comfy burrow nest, and maybe rewatch - hah hah,  had you going here, didn't we?

Movie Titles - a brand of art all their own. They can be simple, elegant, funny, happy, bright and cheerful, or rough, scary and edgy as in Tarantino's case, preparing the audience for something great while building anticipation for the movie to come.

We appreciate the art of it all, but with the speed of the cuts and amazing effects, it seems too complicated to figure out how it was done.

We are taking up the challenge with the recent movie "The Hateful Eight." Terry Syndergaard will deconstruct the method frame by frame, so that it is possible to see all its parts in order to use it for our own purposes.

Taking it to an extreme, what if you could apply that method to another movie genre, even something fun, entertaining, or even sweet? You will be amazed at the work we have done to use the same method to create our own rough, scary, edgy movie title and another one to be sweet, charming, and adorable. You will see that understanding a method is at least as important as the result, as it gives you as many uses as you can imagine.

We'd love to have you join us for our challenge, and have a little fun in the process.

 

RSVP so we know how much pizza to order.
