David Fincher: A Film Title Retrospective
Here's a fascinating and super in-depth look at director David Fincher's title design practices by Art of the Title.
Throughout the many disparate worlds and settings of his films, Fincher’s audiovisual prosody remains unmistakable. There’s always a familiar rhythm at work, a recognizable but elusive metre in the mix. Sometimes it’s lurking just below the surface, other times it’s an inescapable barrage, hammering into your skull. A viewer might glimpse it amongst the grim ephemera of John Doe’s lair, read it in the semi-cryptic lettering of Zodiac’s title cards, or hear it in Karen O’s discordant howl, but it’s always there, teeing up the audience for what is to come.
