STRUCTURE OF OPENINGS LESSON 11

DISCRETE TITLE SEQUENCES
Discrete title sequences are separately edited sequences that stand apart from the film opening. They are stylised and heavily edited, and they support nearly all of the opening credits and film title.

NARRATIVE FILM OPENING WITH TITLES
In some films the narrative starts immediately. We are introduced to locations, settings then characters. The key enigma may be introduced. However, running over this may be the titles. Here are some examples of a narrative opening with titles.


THE SHINING (1980)

PANIC ROOM (2002)

CREDITS OVER BLANK SCREEN
Some movies begin with titles rolling over a blank screen, often with sound effects or a sound track, before introducing image. the titles frequently continue to roll over the images.

FABULOUSLY STYLISED EDITING
Here are a couple of film openings that stand out because the editing is so stylised. This will take a very long time in post production if you wish to attempt anything similar so you need to be well planned!
