1) In what ways does your media product use, develop or challenge forms and conventions of real media products?

Panic Room title sequence 

Here I have chosen to select nine still shots from the title sequence of 'Panic Room'. This opening choses to use a range of ariel long shots and high angles in order to establish the surroundings whilst also incorporating the titles in to the setting itself. However, for our two minute thriller opening, we chose to use basic, plain and simple titles that appear then fade away after about two seconds of being exposed, we chose to do this since it links to the simple theme, idea and environment in which we filmed our thriller.

Since the title sequences within our media product does not reflect the titles seen within the opening of 'Panic Room' and our shots are not as difficult to achieve, our media product therefore challenges some of the forms and typical conventions of real media products.

However, Panic Room and our thriller opening (One Way 61363), both chose to input the production studio, production company and the main actors names as the initial titles within the film, although, we chose to place the film's title at the end of the movie rather than the beginning since there is a link between the title and the penultimate shot.
