I would like to create titles somewhat similar to the opening credits of Se7en.

How would i best go about this? I want the text to look like scratched letters rather than having to pick a font.

Hi Oliver,

You could hand write your titles with something that creates a thick scratched look, with good contrast and then photograph it.
On white paper a black pen with multiple strokes on each letter or perhaps some charcoal might work well.
Then you just need to invert the photographs to get the white on black look and add a little glitchy flickering with Video Copilot’s twitch effect.
