Invitation for the event designed by Villadinamica Move over film stars, it’s time for the creators of movie posters, title sequences, art direction and special effects to walk the red carpet. Exactly one week from now BNORomeo Delta organises CUT! at De Unie in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. The meeting on Monday, January 23 will be entirely dedicated to the magic of the silver screen, but from a designer’s viewpoint. Four designers connected to the world of film will take to the stage, each doing a 20-minute presentation.
Wakker worden op vakantie – Art direction, animation and compositing for MTVNE Shosho designs visual effects and animations for film and television, and develops interactive programs for cultural institutions and businesses. Their work is visual and narrative, and can be seen in movie theatres, on television, in museums and on the internet.
Inlay for the 2-DVD set Forget the Film, Watch the Titles. Typeface: PMN Caecilia Title sequences can sometimes be breathtaking and wondrous; those first few minutes that inexorably pull you into the magical world of the movie. Remco Vlaanderen – web editor and creative producer at Submarine Channel – was as a kind of “title design nerd” happy to work on Forget the Film, Watch the Titles, and will tell all about it at CUT!.

Title image composed of typographic fragments of well-known film posters. Trying to find ways to get people interested in typography, I came upon the idea to tie the subject to pop culture. As a direct result, the very first post to be published on Unzipped was the inaugural instalment of ScreenFonts: Characters on The Silver Screen. Now, almost six years later, my articles discussing movie posters and their typography have grown into one of the most beloved series on The FontFeed and beyond. It also has spawned a first presentation examining the use of Trajan in movie posters for the past two decades.
Admission is €5 (€3 for BNO members and students). Doors open at 20:00; there are no reservations, so if you’re in Rotterdam and would like to attend the evening, come early to avoid disappointment.
