We met with title designer Danny Yount at the studios of Prologue Films in Venice Beach, California. Yount talked about his main titles for Iron Man, RocknRolla, his Emmy award-winning main title for Six Feet Under, and he explains the difference between designing for TV versus film. (6’20”).
This interview is part of a series of five video interviews with title designers recorded in Los Angeles in 2009. See also our interviews with Jamie Caliri, Karin Fong, Garson Yu, and Kyle Cooper.

Great interview with Danny Yount.
It sounds a basic prerequisite for creating tiles but he’s right about the importance of really understanding the story and tone of the film before starting. Love Rock ‘N’ Rolla.
I luv danny~!
So nice to watch and hear an artist having fun with his skill … Danny’s work has me hanging out for the 15 minutes at the end of the flick, watching the credits roll and waiting for surprise end titles.
Danny is the shit.
Danny is the shit. Effortlessly talented. Great, humble person. There is just no other way about it.
