Archer’s Opening Title Sequence

8 Mar

We see them every time we watch a film or animation and usually pay little attention. It’s the opening title sequence, where the film’s opening credits appear and the tone of the movie or animation are set.  A lot of thought and hard work goes into these few minutes.  The new animated series Archer is no exception.

Neal Holman who produced the sequence in about four days states ” My plan from the very start was to do an open using silhouettes in some form or fashion. Saul Bass and some later Saul Bass-esque opens, like Catch Me If You Can and Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, were pretty heavy influences. Even the end sequence of The Incredibles. Anything that had that sort of deft blend of fun and action went into the pot.”

Here is a screenshot of the opening title sequence followed by a link to the clip, which pays homage to vintage espionage films.

It reminds me of 1960′s tv series The Man From U.N.C.L.E (due to the music), Mission Impossible or even a hint of old James Bond flicks.

Sure, it’s like those older films, but it’s A LOT like Cowboy Bebop, and it’s strange that he doesn’t even mention it. Maaaybe it’s a coincidence.
