Steven Spielberg Gives Job To A Fan Who Created 'Tintin' Title Credits

You know the expression, "Dress for the job you want, not the job you have"?

Well, this is kind of like that. Except better.

This is the story of James Curran, a talented graphic designer who, out of sheer love for the Herge adventure series, "Tintin," decided to put his motion graphics skills to work and make the opening credits for Steven Spielberg's big screen release. Just for fun.

And guess what? The titles found its way to the head honcho himself (imagine that hey-this-kid's-got-talent! sequence) and Spielberg, so impressed by Curran's work, invited him to "Tintin's" UK premiere. And then he offered him a job on his next film. (Yes. Really.)

"The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of The Unicorn" co-writer Edgar Wright confirmed the soon-to-be legendary tale via twitter.

So, now we have a choice: Do we hate Curran for landing a dream job or applaud him for landing a dream job?

Check out Curran's credits below -- and remember, miracles do happen.
