6. Effects > Create a Credit Flag

Create a Credit Flag

Most digital video software enables you to easily create text on screen. Some are even quite advanced and can create really cool titles. But sometimes, a more rudimentary approach can yield equally impressive results.

Most movies begin with an opening scene and a list of people’s names and titles superimposed over it. This is known as the Title Sequence. Taking a simplistic method to creating credits (I call the method credit flags) will cause people to wonder, “How’d they do that?”

Preparing Your Flags

First, you will need to gather a few supplies: a large swatch of lightweight white fabric, a black marker, a wooden or metal pole, and a fan. You will also want a pair of scissors and way to attach the fabric to the pole, such as a stapler, push pins, or even tape. Figure 6-31 shows a sample set of the required materials.
