The first thing audiences will often see when watching a film or TV series is the title treatment. Suspenseful or comedic, playful or solemn, this creative morsel sets the emotional and visual tone of what’s to come, and title designers have the vital task of ensuring this clip amplifies the mood and aesthetic of the series or film in its entirety. In this panel led by Adobe’s Senior Product Manager of Motion Graphics & Visual Effects, Victoria Nece, Victoria and professional title designers including Michael Riley (Birds of Prey) will unpack the world of title treatment design and explore the art and science behind this little celebrated, yet vitally important, piece of the filmmaking process.
