Conventions of opening title sequences


  • Colourful
  • 70s theme
  • Fun
  • Background music
  • Dance and catchy music
  • Retro

Order of sequence; Main conglomerate, Production company, name of film, main actors, casting by.., costume design, co-producers, music by, edited by, production designer, photography, produced by, directed by

I love how fun and colourful this sequence is but i wont be basing any of our ideas for our film noir film on this as it has no qualities of noir in it. The music is very catchy and fun but we have a dark story line in our film and this isn’t a good one to base it on. However the sequence in the order of the people who made the film will be relatively similar to ours.  Putting the actors names first, then producers and finally the director.

This opening scene has a really simple way of putting who was involved in the making of the movie and we will be using a few of those ideas including the order in which they put them in. For example we will put the names of the actors first then the producers and finally the director. However this clip is so camp and fun which is great for the films audience but i wont be taking any ideas of it when making our film.


  • Bond background music
  • Dark
  • Simple
  • Pleasing to men
  • Sophisticated

Order of sequence; producers, main actors, name of film, production design, photography design, editors, art director, production manager, camera make up design wardrobe dresser hair manager, special effects, title designer, music, produced by, directed by.

This clip is quite dark and we will use some of the qualities we need for our film noir film. The background sound to this clip relates to the clip and the simplistic style will be a good characteristic for us to use in our film. Also the order of the titles is a normal sequence and we will use this when it comes to our film, putting the actors names first, then producers and finally the director.

Most frequently in opening title sequences the name of the film is presented followed by the names of the most famous actors in the film. After that the names of the other cast members are shown. Following this the name of the producers or the conglomerate are shown. Then any producers or designers involved with the mise-en-scene in the film are shown. Finally the director name appears at the end and then the film begins. This is made by Myself to show the title sequences.
