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.
