  • 1. Media - Analysing The Walking Dead opening sequence Hossameldin Elrayes
  • 2. Micro features Consists of: • Cinematography • Mise en scene • Editing including sound • What elements make this opening engaging for an audience?
  • 3. Cinematography • The opening introduces the main characters • For example, the first photo of a person we see is the main characters in the news paper with the word “Shot”. • This creates an enigma code and make it more interesting for the audience. • Then we see a pan shot of an abandoned pharmacy, which states to the audience that the main character is injured in some way.
  • 4. Cinematography • All the shots are either Pans or zooms out. • Plus, all the shots last for a maximum of a two second period and they are all urban. This tells us that the setting is in the city. • This is to shock the viewer because if the image was left on for long enough, the viewer would get used to it. • http://www.artofthetitle.com/title/the-walking-deadseasons-1-2/
  • 5. Mise en scene • This is flowed by two other main characters. One’s picture with broken glass frame and the other’s is under the rubble. • After the shot of the main character, we then a series of abandoned places, which were a house and a caravan, which are also enigma codes and then an abandoned child’s teddy bear. • The abandoned toy could say to the audience that the owner of the teddy bear was either pulled away in a rush or something could have happened to them. • This is because children don’t usually leave their toys anywhere. • This is then answered by an image of crows eating flesh off the teddy later.
  • 6. Editing including sound • The type of music they use is called staccato. • Staccato music means it uses short notes and short notes are usually associated with thrillers. • There are also a very high pitched base.
  • 7. What elements make this opening engaging for an audience? • The enigma codes made by showing the audience abandoned places makes them ask themselves questions such as “what happened?”. • There is also an enigma code when the audience see the pictures of the main characters. • This makes them wonder if the characters will live or die.
  • 8. Setting • We know it is set in the city because the images of abandoned places are found in the city • For example the abandoned roads.
  • 9. Narrative/Theme • Since it is called “The Walking Dead”, this says that the theme is about zombies. • The main character is wearing a police uniform which tells us that he is a police officer. • Plus, the teddy bear story is covered in one of the episodes. • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=59c842hVxD4
