  1. 1. PIC
  2. 2. More about PIC <ul><li>PIC is a &quot;design boutique&quot; located in Santa Monica, CA. The company was founded in 2005 by Pamela Green and Jerk Van Sluijs. Van Sluijs, who grew up both in Latin America and The Netherlands, went to college at the Utrecht School of the Arts. In 1997 he did an exchange program with a school in Virginia. “Back then there wasn't really any motion graphics in college,&quot; says Jarik. &quot;It was graphic design, video and animation. And if you wanted to prepare yourself to work on main titles you had to combine those three.” Van Sluijs went back to Virginia for his masters and, through a teacher, got an internship position at Greenberg/Schluter in Hollywood. “When I finished my studies, I came back to Hollywood to work at that same company. Greenberg/Schluter was bought up by Kaleidoscope Films Group and we started doing main titles. I met Pamela Green and Stephan Burle there, and we left in 2005 to start PIC.” “We wanted to try to work with the best people in the business and with the best products, and try to be a small boutique.” </li></ul><ul><li>PIC's elaborate opening title sequence for The Kingdom (2007) is a unique blend of opening credits, documentary footage and compelling info graphics. PIC wrote the script, did all the research and literally went back to their history books to tell the story of Oil. Serving as a prologue to the film, the title sequence really put the studio on the map in Hollywood and showcased their skills as storytellers, able to handle delicate subject matter. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Final Destination <ul><li>Witty, it will make you jump. PIC 's opening title sequence for The Final Destination . It presents the horror element as well as displaying the story line within two minutes. It blends in and out perfectly with all the animation as well as the typography being made easy to read. </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul>
  4. 4. Typography <ul><li>You can see from the text above the kind of typography used. It is a little distorted with light shone above it. This can refer to horror as the text is white representing life after death or walking towards the light as the film it self involves the spirit of death and people actually dyeing. Also it is on a black background in order to make the text clear so that the audience can read what it says. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Karin Fong
  6. 6. Karin Fong biography <ul><li>Karin Fong is a director and designer based in New York City. A native Californian, Fong  studied Art at Yale, with a concentration in Graphic Design. After successfully creating an animated alphabet book for her senior project, she began her career as an animator on the WGBH television program 'Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?' From that point forward, Karin was hooked on creating work that combines live action, design, and animation. </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;Title sequences interested me from the beginning and had a part in luring me to RGA/LA, where I was hired by Kyle Cooper,&quot; says Fong in an interview with Submarine Channel. RGA/LA eventually became Imaginary Forces (IF) in 1996. As one of the founding members of Imaginary Forces, Karin’s work spans the diverse worlds of  entertainment, experience design, and advertising. &quot;I probably do equal parts title design and TV spot directing nowadays,&quot; comments Fong in an email. She is currently based in New York City, where she works from If's offices. </li></ul><ul><li>Among the numerous title sequences Fong directed are Dead Man on Campus, Daredevil, The Prizewinner of Defiance, Ohio, The Mummy III: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor. Recent work includes the main title sequence of The Pink Panther 2 - a dream job for any title designer - and the opening titles and &quot;machine vision&quot; for Terminator Salvation. Her main titles for her main titles for the TV series Chuck was nominated for 2 Emmy's in 2008, winning one. In 2001 she received her first Emmy for her main titles for Masterpiece Theatre's &quot;American Collection&quot;. </li></ul>
  7. 7. The Pink Panther 2 <ul><li>The title sequence for the pink panther 2 is actually amazing. The reason being is that it is like a cartoon. I believe that this is one of the best all time title sequences due to the animation and typography being aesthetically pleasing. It shows us a short snippet of the film in animation view of the pink panther and the main character the French inspector. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Typography <ul><li>In order to see how good the typography is for the pink panther you actually have to watch it. </li></ul><ul><li>It is presented in a real different way. As it is not the same as all other title sequences. The text appears in different ways but still keeps its font and colour the same. </li></ul>
