Textual fluidity frozen repeatedly.
Art of the Title spoke with Julien Widmer, the designer of the opening titles for Le Souffleur, a film about an imaginative but shy theater prompter who falls in love with an unwitting actress:
'Souffleur' means 'the prompter' and 'the blower.' It's the same word in French because a prompter 'blows' the words to the actors when they are in need. This particular theater prompter happens to live in his prompter box. So, for this title I chose to blow letters and words like a prompter would do. In this 3D graphic space, we are like the actor who forgot his lines, searching for the words between the letters.
