Se7en• This particular opening sequence isinspirational because it has a mysteriousopening and leaves enigma.Inspiration from opening sequences.Leaves enigma as you don’t knowwho the hand is and why they havedrawings of it.
• Lemony Snicket’s Series of Unfortunate eventsInspiration from opening sequences.This is inspirational as theopening has the storylineof the three children andtheir facial expressions.
Inspiration from filmsThis particular sceneinspired me because itshowed a sense offreedom and that she’sreleased from the pain.This could relate to ours because at the end if shedoes commit suicide it will be her way of endingthe pain.
Inspiration from filmsThis lighting of this scene inspiredme as it links in well with the sceneas it is romantic.Also, his characterrepresentation is that he lovesher very much and is a goodguy.
Inspiration from real films• In Timein this movie it has suicideincluded and it can show uswhy people would commitsuicide and theconsequence of it. And howpeople have a limit to howlong they would live, therich live forever and thepoor die young
In TimeThe convention is, people always intend tocommit suicide from a bridge. And that’swhat this guy is doing by sitting on the edgeof the bridge. I can tell as it zooms into thetime he has left in life, as he gave all his timeaway, which shows that he wasn’t happyand wants to die.He is wearing a suit,which immediatelypresents that he is a richguy that can affordexpensive clothingIts in the morning orbecoming the afternoonas it isnt that bright.You can tell it’s apeaceful place as thereisnt anyone on thebridge and no cars goingup and down the road.This shot would be an establishingshot of showing that the guy justfell of the bridge and it makes itclear that it is a bridge by showingus the whole setting, and showsthe audience enough informationfor the audience to get it.
Chat Room• Chat RoomThis is aboutmainly killingthem selves and itall started online
Chat RoomThe convention ofcommitting suicide can bejumping of a building orself harm, self harmingisnt killing but can provethat, that the persondoesn’t like them selveswhich can lead to suicideThis is set in a bedroom andjumping from her window, andshe is video calling someone, wecan tell this is a video call asthere’s a computer screen andearphonesShe is wearing shorts anda jumper, and her gestureas if she is ready as herarms are side by side onher hips, and cannot seeher facial expression.This would be aclose up to seethe previousscars and selfharming again.This story isabout howpeoplecommittingsuicide

4 3 2 1The convention of thispicture is that theresalways one person in thefriendship groups thatneeds their support morethan othersThis is set in London Westfieldshopping centre, and the secondpicture is at night just next to thebridge where they just stopped one ofthe girls by committing suicidebecause of family problemsShe has a Louis Vuitton bagwhich is obvious that shehas more money than therest of the friendshipgroup, and she is dressingvery smartly as she has asport looking blazer, fullmakeup and curled hairThis would be a long shotas it establishes therewhole body and can seethe background a bit,however its on focus pullsas it blurs out the peopleand objects behind themand the main 4 charactersare clearer

Film4 Production Company• Film4 did not originally focuson broadcasting blockbusters,but nowadays broadcasts manymainstream Hollywood movies• Film4 is a free digital televisionchannel available in the UnitedKingdom, Republic of Ireland andSwitzerland, owned and operatedby Channel Four TelevisionCorporation, that screens films
Film4 Production Company• This would be a greatproduction company as it hasproduced niche audiencefilms before such astrainspotting.• So I thought this would begreat for our openingsequence as our openingsequence would also bebased on a niche audience
Pathe Distribution Company• Pathe is the name ofvarious French businesses founded and originally run bythe Pathé Brothersof France from 1896• Pathé became the worldslargest film equipment andproduction company, as wellas a major producerof phonograph records
Pathe Distribution Company• Pathe would be great for ouropening sequence, as it hasdistributed transgender inthe past, which is called‘breakfast on Pluto’• It would be good to have adistribution company thathas distributed transgenderfilms on our transgenderopening sequence.
