Nice things people have said...
“As far as I'm concerned, Yount is resurrecting a lost art, a care that used to be lavished on movie titles in the glorious golden days of Hitchcock. Watch it, enjoy, and wish that more movie productions would take the time and trouble to hire an artist like him.”
“He designs with a great sense for story and with just the right amount of playfulness to keep his designs from being too serious. His reel is certainly worth seeing and then starting over and watching again. He cut it together with impeccable timing to the music that keeps you entertained throughout. A very hard task to achieve, and from the looks of it, he does it with ease.”
“…strong, graphic gestures…expressive color…perfectly synched to the soundtrack, adding style and panache to the suspensive atmosphere of the intro. The viewer is very effectively submerged in the crime plot of the film.”
“His work is graphically strong but emotionally expressive and incredibly witty. Yount manages to capture the atmosphere and feeling of a film while bringing his talented and innovative panache to the table adding a certain brand of cool to the features he works on.”
“...a title sequence worthy of the late Saul Bass.”
“TV’s most gorgeous opening credits sequence”
