Kaya & Sanel Enigma - How did they do it? L ‘Bend it like Beckham’ - 2002 Opening Sequence Woman play for Man Utd The audience will get sucked into the game they played in the beginning of the opening sequence and then when they see the girl playing with them they wonder why shes playing Mum disapproves of her playing for Man Utd and watch more. The audience will wonder why shes such a good football player, but then when you see her mum shouting and saying ‘she needs to go back home’ the audience will realise it’s a day dream and see that there is conflict in her family about her dream Shows contrast with her fantasy and real life The audience realise she doesnt follow the conventions of a Indian girl and want to watch more about the differences of what her mother wants and what she wants.
Kaya & Sanel Enigma L How are we creating enigma in our opening sequence? • By not letting the audience know why she is walking to the forest as she falls to the ground hopelessly without letting the audience know what she wanted to do there in the first place and further what she would have seen in her hallucinations. • By showing her dramatically fall to the group as a climax to the end of the opening sequence without giving away why, what it was and if she was okay afterwards. • The audience will want to know why she is this way, how she’s tired, dirty, bloody and what happened wrong in her life which the flashbacks will give short clues of this. • Showing just seconds of the flashbacks they will want to see more of what she did and why she did them and its done in slow motion which is a side effect of LSD so the audience can know she on drugs doing these things (in the flashbacks) which because of the hallucinations in the opening sequence will want to see more of it in her other ‘trips’.
Kaya & Sanel Enigma L How we have improved from draft 1? • We draw the audience into our opening sequence more this time so the audience can feel sorry for this venerable character rather than just being told a story • Rather than just showing someone kidnapped like in draft one, we showed the girls journey drawing the audiences attention in slowly building tension • In draft 1 there was no climax, the opening sequence was just basically informing and telling a story however now, we build up tension up to a climax creating enigma and dropping making the audience feel uncomfortable and wanting to watch more
