Star Wars titled Saul Bass style


(YouTube link)

If Star Wars was filmed two decades earlier and Saul Bass did the opening title sequence, it might look like this...

This was a school project. The song is "Machine" by the Buddy Rich Band off the album Big Swing Face (1967).

Saul Bass designed title sequences for 60s movies Anatomy of a Murder, Exodus, and It’s A Mad Mad Mad Mad World, among others. -via Cynical-C

this doesn't really look like saul bass's work; the illustrations are definitely a good approximation of the style at the time, but the motion graphic work itself is simple text movement and stuff. looks cool, but not really sold on the concept.

I don't mind if it's not exactly like Saul Bass, I liked it. I love intros like these and I like how some movies/cartoons use similar concepts with the big band music. The Incredibles, Monsters, Inc. and Cowboy Bebop come to mind.

I like the idea, but Star Wars was specifically known for NOT having opening credits. This was a big deal at the time. Wikipedia has the write up if you google it.

George Lucas got a huge slap on the wrist for not having opening credits. They fined him big-time for it.

This didn't really seem inventive enough.

Catch me if you Can is a good example.
