Kyle Cooper: “Watch the Titles”

Kyle Coop­er, the acclaimed title design­er, art direc­tor and film­mak­er dis­cuss­es typog­ra­phy, his love for the imper­fec­tion of hand­made things, and his main titles for Dark­ness Falls, Se7en and Spi­der­man 2.

In Part 2, Coop­er dis­cuss­es “inte­grat­ed typog­ra­phy” and three clas­sic main titles that made a big impres­sion on him: ‘The Dead Zone’ by Wayne Fitzger­ald, ‘To Kill A Mock­ing­bird’ by Stephen Frank­furt and ‘Walk On The Wild Side’ by Saul Bass.

Robert Hodgin’s “Aphex Twin NYE Show Visu­als”: “Sur­pris­ing­ly, I received an email a short while lat­er from Weird­Core who was in the process of work­ing on live visu­als for Aphex Twins new years eve show in Rome. He had shown some of the videos to Aphex and they were pos­i­tive­ly received.

I end­ed up cre­at­ing a Cin­der app that had 10 pre­set modes and var­i­ous para­me­ter con­trols that Weird­Core could inter­act with in real­time dur­ing the show. The modes ranged from sim­ple 3D point clouds to vari­a­tions of Body Dys­mor­phia.

Weird­Core did a fan­tas­tic job inte­grat­ing the Kinect con­tent with the oth­er feeds con­sist­ing of visu­als cre­at­ed with QC, MaxMSP/Jitter, VDMX, and v002. Here is some footage of the last bit of his set.“
