I saw Casino Royale once in the theater, and parts of it about 20 time on cable, but I must not have seen the opening any of those other times. I forgot the cold open was in black and white too. And I definitely forgot how amazing the title sequence was. ArtofTheTitle.com has it posted, so if you haven’t seen it in a while, definitely check it out again here…. Casino Royale opening.
In the next month or so, CartoonSmart will be releasing two After Effects tutorials, I’m teaching neither, but I think after these first two I’ll have learned enough to tackle teaching some myself, and I’d love to mimic some of what’s going on in that sequence. In particular, I love how each design element is moving subtly.
