    Movie credits font

    Dear All,


    for a day I'm now searching for the kind of fonts they use for typing the credits on movie posters - the back side of dvd cases and so on - I once had it on my computer but It's lost and I simply can't remember the name of it. could someone help me with this one?

    One forehand thanks,
    Yntze

    why dont you just use any sans serif font (like arial)?

    You need to be more specific. Are you looking for a super condensed font? There are sooooooo many to choose from. Give us a bit more info. Perhaps something to look at. - Q

    of course, on this site you can find an example: http://www.sonypictures.com/movies/t...ode/index.html
    it's about that piece of text below: columbia pictures and imagine entertainment present ..... directed by ron howard.

    Hope this helps,

    Maybe Universe Ultra Condensed. That would work. You can get a nice, though more angular, effect from using Agency Regular Condensed (FB font). - Q

    ok since there is already a topic about this I'd better ask here . Can anyone tell me which font is used in this poster:

    I'm looking for the font above 'Pirates' which is pretty much unreadable lol.
