I created the End Credits for Evil Within. This post is a placeholder until I finish the project.
Type of Production
Experimental Short Film
I created the End Credits for this movie that scrolled up at the very end. Closing credits or end credits are a list of the cast and crew of a particular motion picture, television show, or video game. Opening credits appear at the beginning of a work. End Credits or Closing Credits appear close to, or at the very end of a work. A full set of credits can include the cast and crew. They usually include production sponsors, distribution companies, works of music licensed or written for the work, various legal disclaimers, such as copyright and more.
Brandi Sheer (Steffany Huckaby) is on her way to spend the evening with her boyfriend, Kevin (Irving Leffler). But in the quiet, little town of Mortsville, Brandi’s life is about to unravel in a most unusual string of events. From the short story Brandi and the Trench Coat Man (Brad Rieman) comes director Joshua Allen’s grizzly tale of a young woman’s slow descent into madness and her own past…in the present.
Typically, the closing credits appear in white lettering on a solid black background. They usually have a musical background. Credits are either a series of static frames, or a single list that scrolls from the bottom of the screen to the top. Occasionally closing credits will divert from this standard form to scroll in another direction. Sometimes they include illustrations, extra scenes, bloopers, joke credits, or post-credits scenes.
The use of closing credits in film to list complete production crew and the cast was not firmly established in American film until the late 1960s and early 1970s. Films generally had opening credits only, which consisted of just major cast and crew. Sometimes the names of the cast and the characters they played would be shown at the end. Two of the first major films to contain extensive closing credits – but almost no opening credits – were the blockbusters Around the World in 80 Days (1956) and West Side Story (1961). West Side Story showed only the title at the beginning of the film, and Around the World in 80 Days had no opening credits at all.
