A Tribute To The Conversation (1974) Best of Title Design - STASH 2020

Francis Ford Coppola's masterpiece The Conversation revolves around a surveillance expert (Gene Hackman, as Harry Caul) and the moral dilemma he faces when his recordings reveal a potential murder.

This is my tribute to a film that I consider one of Coppola's finest and combines powerful concepts such as murder, religion, privacy, surveillance and morality in a perfectly crafted piece. I took many licenses when depicting the period technology and elements used in the film, as my goal was to establish a contemporary point of view on a true classic, perhaps also working as a title sequence for an imaginary remake.
