Title Sequence idea
Our title sequence idea is to create a yearbook which is opened by all the conventional characters that are seen in teen comedy dramas, for example 'the jock', 'the elite', 'the freak' and 'the nerds'. The title sequence will show all of these characters opening the yearbook and showing the audience their school photos whilst also showing pages such as prom day and graduation day. When creating the title sequence we need to make sure that it is very conventional, this is so it looks as realistic as possible, without the right costume and props the title sequence will not be as effective. When creating the sequence it is crucial for us to add in bright bold colours throughout the yearbook so the audience are aware that it is a high school film.

Judd Apatow - Director
The film director we decided to use for our film was Judd Apatow. Judd Apatow is an American actor and comedian however Apatow is known for his directing skills with movies such as Bridesmaids, The 40 year old virgin, Trainwreck etc. Apatows big screen breakout came from the 40 Year-Old-Virgin, not only did Apatow director the film however he also wrote and produced it and thankfully because of this Apatow had made and earning of almost $110 million in the domestic box office and another $68 million over seas. Apatow had then become known for This is 40 and Knocked up. Apatow usually focuses on realistic, commical improvised dialogue and for our film i believe this would fit perfectly with the humour within the film which we are looking for, Apatow also likes to direct his films at the rear of well over two hours, this is something which is uncharacteristic for comedy films however allows an attraction to the audience.
