D&AD lecture: Kyle Cooper
Wednesday night was the first of the D&AD President's lectures starting with movie titles creator Kyle Cooper. He wowed with his portfolio of film credits, talking about the processes involved, the Hollywood clients and how he started off in his career. He talked about creating the infamous opening titles for the movie Seven, and some of the more analogue methods used to create experimental effects. One of the most impressive was for the film Dawn of the Dead, where he sprayed acid on to film to create the blood dripping type. He showed more recent and more CGI rendered work for films such as Iron Man and Tropic Thunder. To read more about this lecture John Walters has written a review on the Eye blog.
