Scott Pilgrim opening titles
by Critical Commons Manager `

The low-tech graphics that accompany the opening titles of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World offer an unexpected counterpoint to the high-tech, digital aesthetics of the rest of the film. This sequence draws on the history of experimental animation and motion graphics, simulating frame-painting and emulsion-scratching to create a kinetic visual experience to open the movie.
