EVALUATION: Question 1 - Forms and Conventions of title thriller sequence

In what ways does your media product use, develop or challenge forms and conventions of real media  products?

In our film, we used our title sequence effectively to draw more emphasis on the genre of the film (suspense /mystery thriller) .

The intertextuality between the title sequence used is also used in many other films we have used.

Our titles/credits, slowly fade in, this draws more suspense as it resembles what is actually happening in the film (the killer slowly appearing).

However, our titles appear rapidly to add to the emphasis of the 'thriller' effect. 

On the left you can see the production company name of our company, whereas on the right, you can see the production company name of Pelham 123. Both of these are similar to each other because the title comes over a landscape shot of the environment.

On the left you can see our film title 'Shatter'. The effect of the titles are that it slowly fades in and crumbles towards the floor, to show effect that the glass is breaking, thus resembling a glass falling to the floor and breaking. The titles of Pelham 123 appear very fast, resembling a fast moving object, in this case, a moving train.

On the left our credits appear on our film, the names slowly fade in and fade out, to resemble the killer in our film. Whereas the credits on Pelham 23 appear very fast to build up suspense and to add to the frantic atmosphere which is already created by the amount of people rushing in the background.
