As we are going to be making an opening sequence for our final I decided to look into some opening sequences to see what looks good and what does not. First I looked at the opening sequence of Casino Royal. Casino Royal is part of the James Bond series.
This is the clip I used to see the opening sequence.
The scene opens in on a fade in of an establishing shot. This shows their location. The movement within the first shot is smoke coming out of a car. The scene is shot in black and white, to either a change in time for example in the future or in the past. Then a black car pulls up outside the building and you see a very low angled shot of someone getting out of a car, this shows their high status. They look mischievous as if they have a secret. They then use another low angled shot to show the elevator going up. They show the floor's changing on a little screen inside the elevator. This could also be interpreted as a count down. But a count down to what?
