The film opening credits I have chosen to analyse is Grease. Grease’s title credits are very unique credits. These title credits of the opening help setup expectations in the audience for the rest of the film.
The title credits first appear after some of the main footage which is very important to the storyline after the titles it then goes back to footage again. The opening title credit are all cartoon animated, this is what makes the Grease titles unique as the rest of the film is set back in real life. It also then makes the titles fun and the audience will become entertained which would be the main purpose of Grease as it takes the genre of a musical.
The next piece of important information the audience get is when the film is set. The date ‘1950’ is integrated into the back of the number plate, this is effective as the audience can start to build ideas about what the characters costume, the setting of the film and the type of music that may be played throughout the film.
