The Opening Titles of Seven

The opening titles of Se7en (1995) are amongst the most striking and influential in modern cinema.

As part of their video series on David Fincher for the Museum of the Moving Image, Matt Zoller Seitz and Aaron Aradillas have taken an in-depth look at the opening credits of his second film.

According to Art of the Title, the sequence was done by Kyle Cooper in 1995 whilst he was creative director at R/Greenberg Associates in LA.

Note that the music which accompanies the credits is ‘Closer (Precursor)‘, a NIN remix by Coil and Danny Hyde from the ‘Closer to God’ EP.

Trent Reznor (of NIN fame) has scored Fincher’s latest film The Social Network.
