Unnecessary “LOOK AT ME” tv show titles

(1/9) > >>

I’m watching a BBC series which is excellent, called “We are England”, all about the wide variety of aspects of British life. Really good.

What I can’t abide, though, is why the production team felt the need TO HAVE GIANT, BOLD TEXT PLASTERED ACROSS THE CENTRE OF THE SCREEN (centre X and Y axis) - some of it is then considerably smaller, but they make the titles “dance” - and by this I mean the sentences  spelling themselves out in time with the incidental music… WHY?!?!?!? We don’t know or want to know how “clever” the editor thought he was, or how chuffed he is with THIS FLIPPING GIANT, almost full screen typeface!

The other night on one episode, they even told us that sheet steel is… <gasp>… METAL.
Yep, the titles read “… made of stamped sheet steel metal” 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️


And this has what to do with engineering or technology?

TV: Technology
Editing: Technology
Typefaces: Technology
The TV show itself: about factories, using ... technology.

What does the thread "post a picture of a cat" have to do with technology? Less than absolutely nothing. There are others too.
