Film: The Title Sequence

SEVEN - 1995 Design by Kyle Cooper

The title sequence for David Finchers’ 1995 film SEVEN is a landmark for visual design and set the bar for creativity in the design of opening credit sequences. The great thing about Kyle Coopers’ design is that it mirrors the film perfectly – you know you’re in for a bumpy ride as soon as the Nine Inch Nails track kicks in and the titles start. Without this credit sequence there’d be no such creative openers for Dexter, True Blood (the best thing about that show), countless movies, TV, etc.

The following titles are some of the most famous and some are just interesting for their time – the Napolean Dynamite and Juno sequences are perfect in their lo-fi approach and fit their movies to a T (or is it tee).
