The always great Art Of The Title ( on which the dollar trilogy's credits sequences have been available for a while now wrote a full article about the designer Iginio Lardani:

To create many of the optical effects in the sequence, Lardani repurposed a multiplane Pace 1 camera*, often used by cel animation studios, instead superimposing elements like oil, paint, and photography to build layered graphic composites. “The camera is set vertically and under it there’s a bright flat surface, illuminated with lights that come from below, or from above,” recalls Alberto, who often assisted his father. “…He used this as if it was a painting canvas, only the opposite way. He subtracted color from a black film. It’s as if you were doing an oil painting.”

It's also a great opportunity to (re)watch the titles from FOD, FFDM and GBU in HD.
