"Saul Bass" on STAR WARS.

Pretty well done Bass pastiche posted on youtube. It was a student project by a "B. Hilmers" I guess. Great minimized designs of some classic characters.

See more of Bass' great feature titles at the Not Coming to a Theater Near You website. It's kind of a stilted way to see the sequences but, they're pretty decent captures and the slick interface allows you to really study the transitions at your leisure.

Oh, lord! That's brilliant! I laughed my ass off! *checks* No, it's still there.

I've never been a fan of that graphic style, and I've always thought that Bass was overrated. (And don't get me started on the bleary, eyelash-deficient model he used for the "Vertigo" credits, the one where he gives her a "word mustache" -- BAH!) Anyway, this was a fun send-up.
