Opening Shots

Sofia Coppola Movie Title Cards

Few moviemakers give better sans-serif than Coppola. Her films introduce themselves with a distinctive slab of text, ranging from delicate and demure (The Virgin Suicides) to punky and loud (Marie Antoinette). They stem from a long-standing collaboration with English graphic designer Peter Miles.

“It’s funny, I’ve never looked at this before. I always wanted to be a graphic designer, so I enjoy this part of it and I really enjoying working with Peter Miles. It was Peter’s idea to make The Bling Ring’s [title card] so big. I wanted the movie to be obnoxious, and I wanted that neon yellow, but I would have never have thought to make the titles so big. He made them bling. Scarlett (Johansson) was a good sport in that shot in Lost In Translation. It was based on a painting by John Kacere (a copy of the painting, ‘Jetta’, hangs on Charlotte’s hotel room wall in the film), but, yeah, it was brave of her to do that. Lick The Star? I think I did on the computer. It’s pretty basic! (laughs)"

that truly awful short film she wrote, directed by Francis, part of New York Stories. I cannot stress how bad this thing is but from reading about The Bling Ring, the two are not so dissimilar. More
