    iMovie 6 has made me a Motion graphics expert! Here are the opening credits for my short film. There's no music in this clip but let me know what you think...

    I like it, great work. But i think that you should reduce the speed a bit at the beginning, where "CentralPlace Entertainment" flys in. And add some music to the opening credits. I would like to see how it turns out in the end, so keep us informed.

    Cant wait till i get my copy of iLife 06 :rolleyes:

    First of all the intro was great. And with the right music will set off the film. I think the speed overall is fine in the begging maybe a bit slower, but only a bit. Only on the "Can You Hear Me Now" part, my focus was on the picture, and i couldnt read the words that scrolled over it, cool effect but maybe darker photo? (It took me a sec to read the words on the bottom) And the intros for the Starring parts maybe speed up a bit. But overall great job. The Colors were cool. The use of the photos. I like the starring title and how it goes into each picture of the people it has in it. :) And the guy with the pizza cracked me up :) .

    I agree with Texas the the pic blurring and the letters coming in focused is a cool effect for a very dark photo and maybe one word coming into focus but it just doesnt work here. Still with something a bit more simple and remember its the name of the movie so its the most important title.

    hold just one more beat on the longer titles.

    The title is distracting and it doesnt really make sense.

    "can you hear me now" over a blurry image.
    And the image is just a snap shot, its nothing special.
    what does it have to do with the rest of the film?

    also, why the break in between the titles with seemingly random
    snap shots? Why are those there?

    Dont include "below the line" crew in your opening title sequence.
    They don't expect to be there and it takes away from the key players.
    Save people like the second assistant director for the end credits.

    all in all, everything should mean something. This is the viewers
    first impression of your movie, and they should get at least a vague
    idea of what the rest of the film is about..

    and if the movie is under 15 minutes the title sequence is way too long.
