Here’s part one of the Submarine Channel’s three-week-old interview with main-title designer Kyle Cooper; part two is embedded below. You can argue that Cooper’s most famous contribution to the form is still his main-title sequence for Se7en, although I’m a huge fan also of K.C.’s (and Thomas Cobb‘s) opening credits sequence for John Frankenheimer‘s The Island of Dr. Moreau.

The portion below explains “three classic main titles that made a big impression on Cooper — The Dead Zone(Wayne Fitzgerald), To Kill A Mockingbird (Stephen Frankfurt) and Walk On The Wild Side (Saul Bass). Cooper [also] talks about his credit sequence for Dawn of the Dead, arguably one of his greatest next to Se7en, which was hailed by New York Times Magazine as “one of the most important design innovations of the 1990s.”
