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.

From watching our title sequence over me, Bronte and Jazmine came to the conclusion we had to re-shoot both the Jock and Geek opening the yearbook. The Jock was set in the sports hall and the Geek scene was set in the Science hall, during the first shoot for our first screening the clips were a little shaky, therefore when re-shooting the scenes, making sure the clips were steady was one of our main focus points. To help us steady the shot we had used a steady cam, this was so we could get the clip as steady as possible. When editing the clip i had also used a 'Stabilisation' effect, this effects allows any bit of the unsteadiness within the video to be taken away, this was an effect that we didn't know about when i first edited the sequence. Making sure the video was steady was one of our main points of why we reshot the clips, however a re-shoot was taken place due to us also needing to add into the sequence the new aspects of which we added into the yearbook, for example the picture of all of our characters were now within the book as both the class, leanne and Sinead thought this would be better for the sequence.
