The titles of the opening sequence arescrolls, which shows continuity to the 16thcentury, which means it does go well withthe feel of the film. This is a typical strategyof films, such as Gladiator, where they putthe Universal Studios logo in sepia, to showthat the film is set in the past.
In ‘Repressed Memories,’ the costumes andprops also show some continuity to the 16thcentury setting, such as the dark bluecloak, and the wooden stake. However, therewere some elements of the openingsequence that did not show this, includingthe fluorescent belt you can see Stewartwearing. Almost all films also showcontinuity of the time setting throughprops, so I believe that ‘Repressed Memories’has also been able to do that. An example ofshowing continuity through props & costumeagain comes from the filmGladiator, however, even in this film thereare some parts that do not show continuity.
In my opening sequence, I have used a jump cut with a cross dissolve, meaning that the character smoothly fades from one place to another, which I believe is a technique many real media products have used such as James Bond: Quantum of solace, When James and a girl are walking across the desert.
In my opening sequence I have used old English font, which also shows continuity of the 16th century. However, there is also an issue with these, as some people misread what the title was, e.g. ‘crave’ looks like ‘crabe.’ They have utilised this technique in other media products, such as Troy.
