I’m interested in finding examples of kinetic typography or motion graphic design in film that is used within’ the story rather than the opening credits sequence.

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010) and Sherlock are stylized specifically through their liberal use of motion graphic design.  Conversely, Oldboy (2003) and Pulp Fiction both use the technique one time and only one time.

Some films use the technique as a means to display text messages without having to cut to the phone’s screen constantly.  I think Non-stop (2014) did this pretty effectively.

If anyone wants to help me out and is willing to give me some examples I would greatly appreciate it.  You can choose to share by reblogging them into this post or messaging me the title of the movie/show you are thinking of.

Does the lego movie count when he starts to see how each piece can work together?

Stranger Than Fiction, and I’m not sure if it’s entirely what you are looking for but the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy movie also.

This makes me so fucking furious.
Disney, if these are the kinds of things you object to, you probably shouldn’t be adapting anything by Sondheim in the first place. Dicks.

What Today's Sequels Need to Learn From the 'Indiana Jones' Movies

Here’s the important part imo:

Why do I focus this discussion on the first couple Indiana Jonessequels, though, rather than the whole of theBondseries? It is true that we can learn some of this from 007, plus there’s the valuable lesson in how a franchise can recast its hero without necessarily being a reboot — something that’s been suggested andthen rumoredfor Indy before. Well, the thing to learn here is partly that another franchise besides Bond did it well, but also there are some distinctions between the two where I believeIndiana Jonesis the better model. The oldBondmovies especially were a bit too unrelated, with only minor continuity flowing through the series.

Indy is more confined to a timeline in the form of history and period setting, and if you want to give a chronology you can do so better with Indy than 007. Where I look to theIndiana Jonesmovies is in their ability to jump around and be self-contained but always be centered on a character who is consistent in personality and biography (one reason I can’t accept John McClane enough as fitting this idea anymore). WithBond, there’s enough reason for fans to think there are multiple 007s rather than one single man named James Bond.

So, there’s your latest challenge, Hollywood. Stop just mining from literary series that flow from one book to another and give us more well-developed heroes who we want to simply follow on different adventures or missions and get to know bits and pieces of here and there. Maybe it seems less fruitful in a business sense to not have that need in audiences to return for every next episode, but it does mean you can have less successful installments and make a more dissociative return with the next one rather than giving up or having to reboot or worrying about what a disappointment likeAmazing Spider-Man 2means for your long-term plans.

I’m completely against the recasting and endless-sequelizing for this particular franchise (I think it’s rather beholden to a timeline and founded in realism), but I am sick to death of repeated and strung out sequels that have to establish and re-establish instead of trusting the audience to be smart enough to understand what’s going on. It’s kind of what killed the Pirates first few sequels for me? I just wanted swashbuckling and treasure, not a fucking epic. Let’s take the postmeme idea of “epic” and apply that to the rest of our media kthx.

ALSO especially the idea that ToD gave only the subtlest of nods to Raiders and didn’t force references down your throat. That shit gets old before it even happens, and if I have to hear another “why is the rum gone” punchline I’m going to keelhaul some motherfuckers.

And yes, I realize IJ is more than grounded in the Bond franchise. That doesn’t make them the same thing at all.
