Thanks to Robert Paulson for sending this in: Indiewire has a profile piece on sound-designer Ren Klyce, Oscar-nominated for "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo"!

Yeah, it feels a little disrespectful writing this, but "some nerd" has dropped an amazing link in the comments, and I will embed that video for you below: It's Angus Wall and Kirk Baxter discussing their craft. Thanks go to some nerd!
Thanks to everyone dropping this amazing link: If you have found it in the comments section already (thanks to Gould) — lucky you. Because this piece from artofthetitle.com is truly a jam-packed, awe-inspiring, all-out %#§%$&%!
Featuring interviews with David Fincher, Tim Miller and designer Neil Kellerhouse, this is a truly in-depth look at the art, craft, talent and effort that went into the making of Dragon Tattoo's title sequence.
‘You’ve heard of pixel fuckers? Well David breaks each pixel down to its separate RGB components and fucks them one at a time.’
I was especially fond of the bits Kellerhouse had to say about his process and the evolution of the title font. And wow, that Slayer video really is one close and obvious reference for the titles. Great to see what the Blur folks have added to that, and what magic the CG is working on all of it! — Amazing.
