Warner Bros Studios
• The opening of this film shows the company’s
logo in an almost transparent way, fitting in
with a ghost like theme. Following this there is
a trace of mist which is appropriate to the
eerie, mystery semantic field being created.
• The logo is covered by the eerie mist before it
transforms into the moon of the night time
sky. This then leads on to the opening credits
which use a bright green font. The titles are
exactly in the centre of the moon.
Moving away from the Full Moon
• The camera zooms out from the up close shot
of the moon. The titles continue to appear
and fade out, turning to mist. Out of the mist
a flying creature appears and flies across the
moon. This is a clever transition from the word
titles, to the mist, to the mysterious beast as it
flows smoothly and demonstrates advanced
editing techniques. This also links to the
mystery theme of Scooby Doo, as it is
unknown what the flying being is.
Scooby Doo 2 Monsters Unleashed
• This title appears just as the music grows
more dramatic which emphasizes the
importance of the film name. It links to the
pterodactyl which has flown across the sky
Planned Placement of Names
• The following titles are shown as the camera
moves down from the sky to an establishment
shot of the city at night. The titles are placed
above the dark silhouette of the background
mountains and hills that surround the city. As
the title sequence plays further, we see that
the city surrounds a lake.
Titles Adapt to Moving Camera
• As the camera moves out, showing more of
the established setting, the titles remain in the
centre of the screen. They move to the
mountains in the background which is bellow
the skyline, standing out against the black.
Following the Pterodactyl
• The camera pans from a horizontal shot, to
diving down and following the flying creature
which has a dinosaur-like appearance. The
winged animal then flies in-between the
skyscrapers with speed. As the camera follows
it, the titles continue to appear. They float in
mid air before dissipating when they come in
to contact with a building.
