New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
a friend of mine is writing an article about movie title sequences.
He has a question concerning the famous typographic one from ‘Panic Room’, that might best be answered by locals, or people being familiar with New York City.
Where exactly are the places shown in the opening credits? Is their sequence a logical one – like a flight through the city, along a certain line? Or is the camera rather randomly jumping from some location to the other?
Here are 22 stills from the sequence, in order of appearance.
Thank you very much for your help!
