We as a group tried to imitate the simple plain white text that appears in Days of Heavens
(similar to what you can see above left). Above right is a screen grab showing one of the titles in our opening in the same kind of style.
Below are some of the shots we tried to imitate from movies as a form of intertextuality.
From Romeo and Juliet i and my group tried to imitate the close up of Jesus, adding emphasis and tension.
From Incredible Hulk (left image) we tried to imitate the close up of the culprits eyes.
I was pretty sure that i wanted an over shoulder shot in my Thriller opening like the one from the step father on the left.
I thought it would be best to imitate the establishing shot from Step father but instead of an house i included a establishing shot of an church entrance in my opening.
We as a group thought it would be best to include an ident as most films seem to start off with an ident appearing above right is a screen grab of the ident in Reap As You Sow, and on the right is the Paramount ident in Marathon Man.
