Capote Title Sequence

Truman Capote’s In Cold Blood is a novel that struck its readers by describing the gruesome murders of the entire Clutter family. In 2005, the movie, Capote, was released unveiling the story of how Truman Capote wrote his renowned novel. A small team of designers and I took on the challenge of recreating the main title credits for the movie. This opportunity let us explore filming techniques, and allowed us to understand the nuances of main titles sequences. The sequence follows Truman Capote as he sits at his desk. The camera pans to reveal the movie’s credits that have been disguised within the prop's appearance. The final shot of the sequence follows Capote as he turns through The New York Times, the newspaper where he finds the story about the Clutter family murders.

Behind the Scenes

The filming of the newspaper scene was difficult because we needed to create a camera rig that allowed to have a camera pan smoothly in two directions, simultaneously. We enlisted the help of an engineer to help create a rig that allowed us to perform this specific movement.
