The Five People You Meet in Heaven

An upgraded title sequence for the Hallmark film, redesigned in a nostalgic collage style to match the mood of the novel it was based on.


The Five People You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom is a story about an old man named Eddie who works at a pier amusement park and dies while saving a little girl from a broken ride. In heaven, he encounters five different people who had some sort of importance in his life, their significances explained through memories of Eddie's past. This title sequence captures the feeling of reminiscence in a calm, serious tone that fits the way the book is written. The collage compositions represent a piecing together of memories — an attempt to make sense of the past, just as Eddie does in the film.
