END TITLE | MAIN TITLE
While at R/Greenberg Associates, New York, Kyle Cooper and Michael Riley designed the main and end title sequences for the 1992 film adaptation of the Broadway musical Newsies. For the main titles, they color-treated photo portraits of the cast to match the look and feel of stock photography of New York City street scenes from the late 19th and early 20th centuries and layered these into a montage. Showcasing the main title logo over a shot of running newspaper printing presses, its animation is designed to replicate the movement of the news of the day as it comes “hot off the press.” The main on end credits are presented in a typeface selected for its authenticity to the time period of the film and its visual associations with newspaper headlines of that era.
