You’ve undoubtedly seen one of his movie title designs. But young Danny Yount had to overcome incredible obstacles before becoming the legendary main title designer he is today. Listen in on a very intimate conversation as he shares how he got started in design, computers, animation, and directing. This is his origin story, and a rare glimpse into his years growing up in the Bay Area.

Danny’s career includes working at Digital Kitchen where he picked up an Emmy for the Six Feet Under main titles, Prologue Films where he worked on Iron Man, Sherlock Holmes, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and most recently the studio logos and end credits for Blade Runner 2049 and SOLO : A Star Wars Story, created by his company Prodigal Pictures.
