Art of the Title: In Conversation with Star Wars Designer Dan Perri


Join Art of the Title editors Will Perkins and Lola Landekic for a live conversation with Dan Perri, title designer for Star Wars, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Raging Bull, Days of Heaven, Taxi Driver, The Warriors, Gangs of New York, The Aviator, and many more.

The event will feature insight into the process of creating these iconic film title designs, stories and anecdotes, behind-the-scenes materials, and never-before-seen logo treatments and sequence designs. Perri will share stories about working at long-running studio Pacific Title, and his collaborations with filmmakers such as Martin Scorsese, Robert Altman, George Lucas, and Christopher Nolan.

Students, filmmakers, designers: Learn about creating iconic film design from a master of the form! Then engage with him directly during the Q & A immediately following the discussion. Hang out with us afterwards for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres and take photos in front of Village Workspaces Star Wars wall of fame. We can’t wait to see you there!
