4 Film Title Sequences- 4 Print Screens George TruslerThe airplanes are representative of theconstant running/ escaping and constantmovement that is reﬂective of the title‘Catch Me If You Can’. Also the simplecolour scheme that has been used makesthe sequence pleasant on the eyes andmay also mirror the simplicity of the ﬁlmitself. The use of black on the man in theimage makes him seem more illusive andmysterious so that we can recognize thatthis ﬁlm may be about one man hiding andescaping from something.The character that is sitting down is muchlarger than everyone else making himseem far more important and powerfulthan everyone else in the image. Also thelong continuous black lines that form thetitles reﬂect the never ending chase ofsomeone or something. The character’shat and glasses conceal him more whichmakes the effect of him hiding fromsomeone. The use of the newspapermakes him less conspicuous as well.The word ‘me’ is fading out and movingaway representing the illusiveness of thecharacter that is running away. It is also adifferent colour making it separated fromthe rest which signiﬁes an outcast or thatthe person who it represents is moreunique than the rest. Again the long lineshave been used to reﬂect the runningaway.The illusive character is clearly in the taxibecause it is on the run from the police carwhich again signiﬁes the running thatseems to be repeated over and over again.We can tell this because of the tire skidmarks left by the speeding car. Also thecharacter may be in the traditional yellowcab of new york to signify were the ﬁlm isset but also to signify a blending in of thecharacter on the run.
The car in this image is purple. This is thecolour of jealousy which signiﬁes thateveryone wants to have this car or thebest car that they possibly can get. Alsothe blurry background makes the car themain focus of the image which is areﬂection of the main plot of the ﬁlm.Theblanked out windows may be being usedto conceal the person within the car whichmay reﬂect that the driver is a wantedman/woman.The spoiler signiﬁes that the car is or isused for racing or that the car is very fast.The blurry background which is in front ofthe car signiﬁes that the driver eitherdoesn’t really know were they’re headingor that there is no real destination thatthey are heading for. The only objectwithin the image is the car which signiﬁesthat this ﬁlm is all about cars but alsosigniﬁes that nothing else matters otherthan the car.The body of the car looks like it is veryexpensive and that it has been improved.This signiﬁes that they’re is always roomfor improvement and that the people inthis ﬁlm have a lot of money whether itcome from legal or illegal sources. This isthen backed up by the large and shinyrims which also look like they’d beexpensive. The person inside is stillconcealed which signiﬁes that the personinside has broken the law.The green background creates the feelingof success or that something good hashappened which may reﬂect the mood atthe end of the ﬁlm for the person that isdriving the car. Also, all of the titles thatwe have seen are around the car whichagain signiﬁes the importance of the carwhich is seemingly the main plot of thisﬁlm.
4 Film Title Sequences- 4 Print Screens George TruslerThe image is iconic and is thereforeinstantly recognisable as a James Bondﬁlm which means that the ﬁlms are a hudesuccess. The use of black and white aswell as the circle around Bond makes usfocus on him which signiﬁes his power andsigniﬁcance in the ﬁlm. Also his pose isone of power and conﬁdence whichsigniﬁes his control over everyone andeverything around him.The way he is sitting and looking downslightly makes us think that he is watchingover someone which signiﬁes that he is aheroic character. The roots that are in theimage creates the sense that gamblingand casinos are spreading and taking overin society, this signiﬁes that this may be amain theme within the programme. Onlyprimary colours have been used whichmakes the image seem more simplle andtherefore isn’ to vibrant and in your face.The guns are shooting hearts which isreﬂective of what the purpose of a gunactually is, this is all done through symbolsand signiﬁers. There is also a crossﬁrewhich instantly signiﬁes that there is aﬁreﬁght meaning that the ﬁlm will contain alot of action. The explosion/ ﬂash of theguns is made up of suits of cards whichmay signify and reﬂect why the gunhasbeen ﬁred in the ﬁrst place.The man that Bond is in a conﬂict with isred which signiﬁes a danger and threattowards James Bond. The background ismade up of the back of a deck of cardswhich again suggests that gambling andcasinos is everywhere and that thisencounter maybe happening inside acasino.
The image has a light and a dark sidewhich could represent good versus evilwhich may be a theme running through theﬁlm. Everything appears to be on a deskwhich is representative of someoneexamining evidence or work which willprobably contain key parts of the storywithin the ﬁlm. The lighting also makes theroom look small and also makes it focus onone particular thing.The ﬁlm being cut suggests that whateveris on it may be evidence to some sort ofcrime. Also the ﬁlm makes us instantlyrealise that this ﬁlm is set in past timesbecause nowadays it would be on acomputer screen. Itis very dark againwhich may resemble the overallatmosphere of the ﬁlm which is comingacross as good versus bad.There are some kind of newspapers in thisimage which could again be being used asevidence. There is now a common themecoming through from this title sequence.There is blood on the page which couldreﬂect danger or that the information onthe page is about a danger of some form.It is also written in a different languagewhich makes us realise that this ﬁlm maybe set in an entirely different country.They are collecting somes hair (DNA),which again signiﬁes that it is evidence ofsome kind. There are also images on thepage of people in vulnerable positionswhich could also be being used in order tosolve the case that appears to be the mainstoryline within the ﬁlms. All of this gives usthe impression that whoever is working inthis dark room is good trying to stop thebad.
