Fearmakers Scares Us... and Teaches Us?

A friend, who ironically worked on Fearmakers' first feature Death4Told, is now a web designer. He recently told me about a class he took and particularly about a book he had to get for that class. The book was Motion Graphic Design: Applied History and Aesthetics by Jon Krasner. In the companion DVD there was something interesting, the opening titles were there as examples of professional work in motion graphic design. Pretty cool that the work appearing in the film was being used to teach others. Steelcoast Creative, the designers of the opening title sequence, did a tremendous job and have been working on our projects ever since. In fact they've worked on EVERY project ever since including our sub-division Strange Stuff.

So if you're thinking about going into graphic design or web design or filmmaking, you could learn a thing or two from a Fearmakers movie. But when the instructor asks you to buy the book just nod politely and say, "thanks, but I'll just get the movie instead." We'll appreciate that you did.
