Why Animators Need Good Titles
Part of making any short film is thinking about titles, and typography.  A good title sets the tone and style for the forthcoming film.

For all our students working on titles and title sequences for their short films, we recommend visiting, a website dedicated entirely to the art and craft of movie titles.
Why Titles Matter
"Charlie and Yip" by Alex Williams
Titles matter because they set expectations for the film. You've gone to a lot of trouble to make a great short film, with a great story and stylish animation. The next step is to come up with a decent title, find a font that works for your story, and get into your film in a stylish way. 
At BNU, our students put a lot of work into customising the titles for their films, giving them a professional quality and standard. 

There are countless fonts out there that you can experiment with. Making a sci-fi film? - try a Sci-Fi font, or even make your own. Whatever you choose, your title should say something about the film the audience is about to see.
