Introduction to the project

This morning we were introduced to title sequences. We looked at a number of different ones, random ones from film & TV, to gather some background research, and prepare for our term project, which is to create a 2 minute (120 second) title sequence of our choice.
At first the assignment seemed really daunting, but I'm enthusiastic to create something powerful and moving, and visually exciting.

What a title sequence is;

A short introduction to a television program / movie. Often uses images/music/and can include opening credits, and most importantly, a title.

We've been using for background research and analysis on the different title sequences out there. We were told to check out Saul Bass, the director. And also more simple pieces like that of Woody Allen films.

Conflict of interest:

I was interested to find out what sort of software people use to design this kind of Media. However I'm not familiar with any of the advanced types of programs, so I'm somewhat worried where to start and I'm not sure what I can achieve with the knowledge I have at this point in time. I'll need to make do with the resources I have right now.
