Madea’s Big Happy Title Sequence-Who's going to see it? (4610 hits)

Madea’s Big Happy Family Title Sequence from Thomas Mavity on Vimeo.

The title sequence, as a separate art from the rest of the film, almost seems like a throwback to mid-20th-century filmmaking, conjuring up images of the legendary Maurice Binder titles on James Bond films, or Saul Bass animation for Stanley Kramer or Alfred Hitchcock.

Steve Viola, creative director of Santa Monica-based Rok!t (yes, that exclamation mark isn’t a typo), helps bring the animated title sequence back to the forefront with their CG-yet-retro work on the latest Tyler Perry outing, Madea’s Big Happy Family.

The film opens with an animated sequence of Perry’s titular character leaving her house and driving her car around town, getting into a series of mishaps – with various relatives – that leads into the “live” opening shot at a hospital. “We wanted to center this concept around the car – sort of a quick cartoon version of the movie,” Viola says, revealing “little things to show the quirkiness of the characters like Madea dragging around the relatives that live in the house with her.”

There are some really good African American movies out and I plan to see them all. I love Madea and I don't care what Spike Lee says. Don't get me wrong, I love Spike but he needs to keep writing children's books for my little one. I can't wait to see this movie in the theater although I really don't get out much to the movies. Another movie that I want to see is 'Jumping the Broom'.
