So goes the title of the YouTube video of the title sequence for the Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events. The title sequence combines many of my inspirations in one amazing package!! The Bizarre, the Mysterious, Shadow Theater, Escher-esque Spaces, Woodcut prints, White Chalk, Asian Art, Textile Design, Modern Jazz Inspired Music… wish the entire movie had been done in this style – I wouldn’t have fidgeted through it, then – Don’t get me wrong – The movie is great, as are the set design and art direction – but I definitely enjoyed the title sequence more!

Jamie Caliri is a director with a passion for visual story telling. His animated films of recent years have garnered an Emmy and three Annie awards, among others.

One thought on “Forget the Film, Watch the Titles!!

  1. Dude, you are sooo good, I went to school with Jamie, he is an amazing talent. Damn for not being an animator you really do know your stuff! Very impressed.

    Jamie’s credit sequence is the best part of this movie. Often dreamed of working with him again.

    He was developing a game at Pixar right when I started.

    Recently Jamie completed several united Airline spots that are really strong.
