American Graffiti | Title Sequence
American Graffiti is a period piece that captures the feeling of the late 1950s and early 1960s, when the movie takes place. The story predominantly occurs in and around the characters’ distinct hot rods. The soundtrack is a compilation of late 50s and early 60s hits that was certified triple platinum and became a phenomenon in its own right.
This title sequence roots the movie into this era, focusing on the physical representation of music (radios) and incorporating the color palette of hot-rods from the late 1950s and early 1960s.
