OT: Saul Bass Google Doodle
on May 8, 2013 at 10:52:10 pm

Please pardon the off-topic, but today was Saul Bass's 93rd birthday, and Google celebrated it with a Bass-inspired doodle:







It's an homage to the mograph of a by-gone era, and to one of the first designers to see the creative potential of film title sequences. The doodle is loaded with references to classic film titles.

Enjoy,

He's still justifiably revered. His work on Vertigo, North by Northwest, Cape Fear, The Man with the Golden Arm etc still holds up and inspires. Thanks for the link Walter.

Thanks for posting and a bigger thanks to Saul Bass who blazed the trail for so many of us.

It's great stuff, and it hardly looks dated. Could have been done last week.

Farewell to Ray Harryhausen

[John Cuevas] "and a bigger thanks to Saul Bass who blazed the trail for so many of us"

Many thanks indeed. Bass was a genius and pioneer.

Also well-worth noting: Ray Harryhausen, visual effects pioneer and stop motion modeler and animator, has just passed away. I vividly remember watching the skeleton sequence from Jason and the Argonauts in amazement as a little boy -- in retrospect, I think that was my first exposure to "movie magic."

Thanks to both these men for sharing their imaginations and doing the impossible on-screen.
