Investigating film titles Investigating film titles Document Transcript

  • What can be noticed is that many film titles fade in and out using a cross dissolve effect over the next shot, this is something I will apply in my own film to make it true to form. The film titles also often link to the shots, for example this title and then shot from the film Belle shows the noun “spring” followed by a summery spring shot. This is something I must think about when creating my film titles. It can be seen that some of the most professional looking trailers (in my opinion) use a white text on a black background, not only is it clear but I believe that with my trailer not being a professional quality product, applying colours like this could improve its ‘professional’ image. It can be recognised that many fantasy films use backgrounds with a gradient or stars with magical or royal colours, this is something I should consider with my film being a fantasy drama. However I must also look at dramas and other aspects to make a final decision. Many drama films use a bold text, usually capitals, I must consider this when making my own titles. Titles usually say when the film is coming out as well as use a range of adjectives to ‘sell’ the film, from recognisable names. Titles also have lots of production members names towards the end of the film (pictured left) this is something I may like to use in my own trailer. Most, if not all trailers credit actors names also, I may do this in my trailer also.
