Transcript of "Evaluation question 1: Style and font of titles"
I aimed to place the titles in ‘free space’ on the screen. Theywere white in colour which has connotations with innocence(a characteristic linked with children who are the maincharacters of my film). The simplicity of the titles could beseen as mirroring the simplistic lifestyle in rural areas (thefilms setting). The titles also fade in and out which adds to the‘dreamy’ aspect of my opening title sequence. For this reasonI believe that the titles work well with our opening titlesequence. The style of the titles, simply being superimposedupon the image, is similar to all but one of the opening titlesequences I have looked at. Keeping the titles simplistic wasan important decision we made as to keep the audienceconcentrating on and following the storyline.Earlier in the project I decided to be somewhat creative whenpresenting the film’s title after being inspired by opening titlesequences like ‘Napoleon Dynamite’. I tested several ideasbefore deciding on the poster. I hand-drew this logo and tea-stained the edges to create an ‘old’ look. This is almost likethe films individual ‘logo’ which is common in many otherfilms. The logo itself works well with our opening titlesequence as it is a horse-shoe and has a drawing of a rural-landscape. This introduces the audience (even if they weren’tto have seen the earlier part of the title sequence) of thefilm’s setting and themes.
