These titles show a classic way of introducing a team with a light hearted side. We see out lines of the characters on colourful backgrounds with their job in the team. This clip from ‘oceans eleven’ the well known crime caper is similar to the type of film we are trying to create.
The Thomas Crown affair, stealing the painting.
This to is a crime caper but the scene I have chosen is what the group in our film are trying to be. The smooth sophisticated criminal who is calm under pressure. Working as a team in the preparation of stealing the painting our team does seem to mimic this but when the job needs to be done their theft doesn’t go according to plan.
We have taken ideas from both of the clips to adapt our opening sequence and also looked into other conventions of the crime caper film.
The main setting for this film is London, however we have noticed in crime films such as the ‘Italian job’ and ‘Entrapment’ stunning scenery is used to show the wealth of the team and con. We would go to Paris, Rome and Monte Carlo to add our own affect to the caper. We are also filming parts in Millwall this brings it back to more realist territory and the light heartedness associated with this type of film.
The Italian job
These capers are all done as a group relating to our own production and would give the audience an understanding of the film.

Our crime caper
Our crime caper is a original storyline, it will involve an introduction a major problem followed by the main con which in its self will encounter problems and lead to a more open frantic twist for the film. We will leave the ending open in a cliff-hanger to allow our audience to make their own mind up about the story. We will include the problem surrounded by a twisting plot and light hearted humour allowing for an enjoyable viewing for both older and younger audiences. Our inspirations have helped work out main plot and to gain some idea of music camera angles and content.
