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
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.
