Spy Genre Title Sequences Analysis
The Skyfall title sequence didn't have many shots as it was all mainly created with CGI and therefore it can look interesting as the setting can be anywhere. It was also made as silhouettes which gives the mystery of who the character/spy is and what he looks like. The text was small and simple sans serif text in the colour white, this shows the text isn't the main part of this title sequence and they want the audience to watch the title sequence mainly instead of reading the text.
The colours were all very red and black giving a dark and mysterious look and also makes the audience curious about whats happening in the scenes. The audience knows its an action film as there were shots of guns, knives and blood which shots the film will have fight scenes.
I like this title sequence but I feel its very long as it mentions many cast names throughout the sequence which could bore the audience before the film even starts. Its also very simplistic and all CGI which doesn't always appeal the audience as they don't see much from the film, such as some action scenes and it also doesn't tell a lot about the film and the genre or what its about.
