Saul Bass Lost Titles

Yes, I am absolutely nabbing this one from /Film. Thanks to our lovely commenters for pointing it out anyway, though. These videos are — without a shadow of a doubt — the coolest damned thing I’ve seen all week. And as you know, I see some pretty cool stuff on average. The folks over at SuperPunch first linked up this pair of videos that take a Saul Bassian approach to the opening titles of two great geek properties — Lost and Tron.

The were created by a mysterious Vimeo user named ‘Hexagonall’ who almost perfectly channels the minimalist style of Bass, who is known for his poster and title work for the likes of Stanley Kubrick and Alfred Hitchcock. My personal favorite Bass title sequence is North by Northwest, for obvious reasons (it’s brilliant, I tell you). And as a fan of both Lost and Tron, I can’t begin to tell you how much the two videos below tickle my fancy. So much so, that I’ve begun using the phrase “tickle my fancy” unironically. It’s been a strange day, friends.
