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.

'The freak' scene

Today me, Bronte and Jazmine filmed Jazmine being 'the freak' clip in the title sequence, the settings we had used were the school toilets, we used the down stairs unisex toilets as we believe they represented a US style. Within the toilet we filmed the birds eye view shot of the freak opening up the yearbook to see her image within the book, within these pages it also showed 'Universal presents a JBB production' and Bronte Humphrey's being the director. On this shoot due to Jazmine having to film i took over and was the cinematographer whilst Bronte took care of the lights. Once this was shot we filmed Jazmine throwing the yearbook into the bin, which had soon fell on the floor, after this the next part that will be needed to film is James being the jock and finding the book on the floor, which he takes to the basketball court and this is where he opens the book. The picture below shows the settings we used to film the freak opening the book.

When filming the 'Freak Scene' this is the costume we used, we decided for the goth to wear all black costume, this is due to believing that it helps illustrate the freaky, gothic feel we wanted Jazmine to look like, with the costume we also made sure that Jazmine had very dull make up on with black nails. For our title sequence we had to make sure our mine-en-scene is appropriate for the diegesis within the film so that is allows us to convey the American high drama conventions throughout our sequence.
