"While the size of new projects being shopped at AFM may have gone down, the number and variety of titles on sale has not. The films on The Hollywood Reporter's AFM 2018 hot list range across genres, styles and budgets, each with a fair shot at becoming the next big thing."#afm #afm18 #americanfilmmarket

More Than Words: An Interview with ‘Art of the Title’ Editor William Perkins - Film Independent

"Opening title sequences are an integral part of visual storytelling, even if too frequently they occur as an afterthought—a thing to be tacked on last-minute out of grim legal obligation.
