The Film Before the Film:
Title Designer Danny Yount

By Erik Espera

A self-taught artist, Danny Yount has become one of Hollywood’s most respected commercial directors and motion designers.

Danny’s natural talent for design and photography, paired with his love of movies, led him to a career creating title sequences and promos for some of the biggest feature films and TV shows of recent years. His past work includes the Emmy Award–winning title sequence for Six Feet Under, as well as the main titles for Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, RocknRolla, the first three Iron Man films, Tron: Legacy, and Oblivion.

Today he runs his own production and motion design company called Prodigal Pictures, a company focused on his unique brand of story-driven visuals.
