In lesson we had to watch the first 5mins of a thriller.... An ACTION/THRILLER :D. And erm the thriller we watched was Deja Vu (2006), the whole point of it was to watch the opening film credit (roughly first 5mins) and see who and what was listed generally, for example name of production and distribution firms, directors, actors, editors, writers and blah blah.
OPENING CREDITS IN DEJA VU!
The first few seconds (first 43 seconds) were used to list the firms responsible for the production and distribution of the films.
JEFF BUCKHIEMER FILMS
SCOTT FREE PRODUCTIONS
In most film title sequences the production and distribution firms are the first thing shown... i.e a paramount films will have its logo and its name on before anything else same with Warner Bros and almost every other Film company. Giving the film corporate backing, status and all that good stuff.
From 0:43 to 2:08 THE NAMES OF DIRECTORS AND ACTORS WERE SHOWN, ALONG WITH THE TITLE OF THE FILM.
Director TONY SCOTT
Actors (main ones/box office draws) - DENZEL WASHINGTON- VAL KLIMER (FORGOT HOW TO SPELL HIS NAME) - AND LOADS OF OTHERS
2:09 - 2:33 featured other supporting actors. The not so important people.
2:34 - 4:33 Was given to listing the non acting roles, in other words the behind the scenes guys, WRITERS, EDITORS, TECHNICIANS AND OTHER SUPPORTING ROLES.
IN TERMS OF PEOPLE LISTED THAT ABOUT IT, ALTHOUGH I THINK THE FILM DID PUT ENOUGH EMPHASIS ON MAKING THE TITLE OF THE FILM STAND OUT MORE, I THOUGHT IT LOOKED RATHER... small.
The credits were fairly spaced out no name had an incredibly long stay on the screen unlike some other title sequences, and it was fairly decent pace, the sequence that is... not to fast, not too slow :)
