An Intertitle “(also known as a title card) is a piece of filmed, printed text edited into the midst of (i.e. inter-) the photographed action at various points, generally to convey character dialogue (“dialogue intertitles”), or descriptive narrative material related to, but not necessarily covered by, the material photographed (“expository intertitles”).
Ever since I was very young I’ve been fascinated and enchanted by Silent Films. The creative use of intertitles in film to advance a story or even to enhance the atmosphere and mood was not a limitation, but a fantastic cinematic device of the time, combining beautifully the printed word and moving image.
Comic books in this way as well, were (and still are) very near and dear to my heart, in storytelling with images and the printed word. In this manner one could say a blog makes use of an intertitle type format, using interspersed text and images to advance a story of sorts.
Originally from Ottawa, Jamie heard the call of London, packed her bags and moved to the UK at age 18 where she lived for over a decade. Studying European Theatre in London and VŠMU in Bratislava, Slovakia where she specialized in multimedia in performance.
