Opening titles credit sequence

I have analysed two opening title credit sequences in order to get a feel of how me and Harry shall use Credit titles in our film Third eye. I have picked Goodfellas and Panic room to analyse as both have quite different credit titles, Panic room is of the same genre as our opening sequene therefore is a decent fim to analyse.

Third eye - casting

For our cast we will only be using 3-4 charcters, alongside a few extras during certain scenes, other than that me and Harry will be handling pre production, filming and editing. we think it would be best for our psychological thriller to limit the amount of characters, so our audience can really identify and understand the characters in the film, as we are oinly doing an opening.
 Main Character (suffering from hallucinations) - Kirsty Brown
Friend - Mel Knight
little girl - TBD

Third Eye - Classification


Our film ‘third eye’ will be classified under certificate 15. I think it should be certified 15 from the BBFC (British board of film classification), as there are mild elements of horror, some use of strong language, Mild drug reference, and elements of imitable behaviour included in our film.

Third Eye - Distribution

We have chosen Vertigo films for our distributing company as they are a British independent film company and distribute quite a varied selection of films.  We believe that with Vertigo films, they are more likely to accept the distribution of our film, as it is a British company (distributing Our British film) and also the fact it is an independent film company makes it more likely for them to distribute our film rather than use a big labelled distributor like working title or warner bros.  We have picked vertigo films specifically over other British independent distributors (for example warp films) as Vertigo seems to distribute more thriller/horror genre films (genres quite similar to our psychological thriller ‘third eye’), thus we think Vetigo would be more suitable than other Independent distributors.
