Title Sequence

 A title-sequence that inspires me at the moment is the 'Memento'. I enjoy the fact that the beginning of the film is actually the ending to the film. Also the movie is shown in black-and-white and also colour. The black-and-white is shown in chronological order where as the coloured scenes are in reverse. In the opening scene we have extreme close ups of a photo, of a bullet and blood. This is to show us they are significant to that scene. The pace in the opening is very slow and everything is going backwards. This makes us ask question, but we know, even if it is confusing, our questions will be answered. 

Here is the opening scene to Memento:
