Good music can make anything better. Seriously, anything. Even something as seemingly unrelated as a movie or television show title sequence.
Art of the Title is a website dedicated to the art of the title sequence. You can find almost any genre of television show or movie you could possibly imagine in their archives. One thing that makes the great ones great: the music. It’s more important in creating a successful title sequence than you would expect. The right music and the right graphics can make for a title sequence that you love just as much as the show (or sometimes more).
