A rose usely symbolises a love story or a romantic scene. If a rose was at the beginning of a title sequence this would symbolise that the film or tv program is going to be about a love story.Allthough sometimes it can be used for horror in an ironic way.
Black-I think the colour Black can be used in a lot of different ways to make a title sequence good. For example if it is put with the colour Red, then it can look scary .Whereas if you put it with the colour yellow it might look funny.
Pink-I think that the colour pink generally shows the movie is going to maybe a teenage movie or romcom.
Silver/Grey- Could be used to represnt sci-fi or a modern film
Firstly i am going to look at some romcom title sequences to get ideas.
I am looking at the opening of Briget Jone's Diary.
The opening of this film is different to alot of title sequences because it just has the main character acting in the middle and cast's names coming up. It uses comedy. I think this would be difficult to do for our title sequence because we probably wouldnt have an actor who could carry out the whole of the title sequence. It is very simple because it is a big blockbuster movie however ours is not,so it has to have more it than that.I think the comedy genre would be hard to do because it is a very skilled thing to do to make people laugh.
I am going to look at a title sequence of a horror film
I am going to look at the movie Jaws.
I think the movie sequence, is good in some ways because of its theme song which is very important in the whole movie and everyone has become to reconise. I think our title sequence should have a good opening song to go along with the sequence because i think music is very important in making it very good. The shot with the camera just above the water is very effective too. However i dont want to just make my title sequence just a horror.
We have just been given information on how to do our pre-production to our title sequence.
We have until the 4th Of November to do our research and preproduction and to give a presentation to the class about our title seqence.
To do List
- Research target audience
- Deconstruct exciting media texts.
- Plan each stage of your production

Here are some title sequences that i have been looking at.:
This title sequence is from the Tv show "The Simpsons"-It is a very popular tv sequence as it is reconised acr0ss euroupe and America. In this title sequence there is a slight change to it on every different episode. This is how the characters get infront of their tele,this is the end part of the title sequence.
I like this title sequence because it uses humour to get the audience intrested and uses happy/jolly music to give an idea to the audience what the tv program is about.This is a signiture tune.
The title sequence uses cast and crew memeber names and then sometimes a still image of the couple or a moving scene of the christmas lights outside.
This differs from "The Simpsons" title opening which is all moving shots.
The music in the title sequence is also dark and omnious. The title sequences varies alot from the other two because it is alot shorter so it just goes alot quicker,i think i like the longer title sequence better because it gives more of a suspence to how the film/tv program is going to be.
Out of the three title sequences i like the "PS I love You" title sequence best and would like the title opening sequence i make to be most like that. Like the lengh of it which is about 2 minuites. I also like the simpleness of it because there isnt too much in it but its not boring at them same time.
