Credit where credit is due


A terrific retrospective of David Fincher's title sequences over at The Art of the Title Sequence:—
"... Panic Room was just graphic fun. I was playing around. For years we’d joke: “When you see the credits for a movie, what is that type? Is it supposed to be a projection over the scene or is it supposed to be there? Let’s ask that question.” So we started playing around with that idea. In the scripts that you’ve worked with, how often are the titles detailed? Is it purely, “Insert Sequence Here”? Almost never. For Panic Room, the sequence takes a trip up the island of Manhattan through quick shots of buildings to get the idea of, “You’re downtown, you’re midtown, you’re traversing the park, you’re moving to the west side: here’s where the story takes place.” This was the same idea as the title sequence to West Side Story, so we had to do something a little different."
