Q1: In what ways dies your media product use, develop or challenge forms and conventions of real media products
Our title sequence wasn't entirely based on a another films title sequence however, Any Human Heart's titles were simliar, as they are in quite a small size and abstract font, which we used. We used small font so the titles seemed more like they weren't there, and the trailer alone was more important. The clips in the sequence were also establishing shots, which help identify the location, which is done in Any Human Hearts opening. Any Human Hearts opening is very simliar to Kiss Kiss Bang Bang's opening as the title pictures are really abstract and it person is a shadow, there are no features you can see apart from the bodies outline.
This is the title sequence screen grabs from Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, which also uses very simplistic style for their title and similarly the font is small and positioned to one side, to create an effect. However we chose to place all of our titles in the middle, so they were clear, and usually easy to read. And centered is very formal, and can always be seen because its in the middle.
