Increase Font Reset Decrease Font
if you haven't seen AMC's Halt and Catch Fire yet, you should probably just stop reading this and get to it. If you have, you'll know that it offers a relentlessly authentic glimpse into the cutthroat world of '80s computing. Creating a title sequence that matched the show's aesthetic was no easy feat, as an interview with director Patrick Clair and lead animator Raoul Marks reveals. Published by Art of the Title, the interview offers an interesting look into how much effort goes into just thirty seconds of onscreen time, including clips of the storyboarding process and extensive explanation of the thinking behind the title sequence.
