I found inspiration in films from the James Bond franchise, especially Casino Royale. Within the opening basic 2D shapes and symbols are used to symbolise both violence, and crime but also a sense of class and charisma. The background of the opening connotes this as it stylised. Along with this the use of different shapes to create other objects and forms was very interesting and engaging. For example this can be seen through the use of card suits as blood within burst veins. The use of silhouetted characters is also used, this could be something that I wish to emulate within my own sequence as this is an effective way to create a narrative within the opening sequence.
Another title sequence which I looked at for inspiration was Luther. The use of colour within the sequence itself connotes the genre of the piece, for example the red mixed with the black within the sequence connotes danger, darkness and murder. The use of iconic buildings also sets up the scene for the audience as they will know what to expect from the production.
