Project Title Seven Deadly Sins
Section 1: Rationale (Approx 100 words)
The reason a title sequence is used to introduce themes, locations and other key aspects of a show. The title sequence also tries to be eye catching and interesting to watch, they usually accomplish this by using catchy songs or soundtracks that capture the theme of the show while being memorable. Most opening credits are around one minute to three minutes, the shorter credits are usually mainly just the title and a few cast members while the longer ones are usually more intricate and detailed sometimes revealing backstory on the plot e.g. 
Within this opening it shows key events such as a newspaper that explains that the main character Rick was shot which, while it does happen in the first episode, reminds the audience why Rick doesn’t understand the outbreak at all in the beginning.

 

Section 2: Project Concept (Approx 200 words)
 My aim with the project is to film my classmates doing various actives that represent the seven sin. I will then edit out faces by placing a coloured mask over the video to hide identity and also show what sin they are due to the colour they will be masked with, e.g. purple for pride, greed for envy etc etc. I hope to have the seven actors stand in a V formation at the end of the intro where I’ll slowly take away the masks revealing the actors. The hardest part I believe will be the masking onto the characters as it will have to be rather exact to make it look good. If you want to see the inspiration for my idea watch this video:
When I saw the solid colour character in this opening sequence I knew I wanted to do something similar as it looked eye catching and is memorable.

I will most likely need a prop knife, some prop (or real) food, a shirt or jacket with a collar, something easy to recognize to do with money such as a necklace or a wallet, a pillow or blanket and some extras.

 

Section 3: Evaluation (Approx 150 words)
 I intend to evaluate my work using the blog posts and also may do a few vlogs if I need to get something down but do not have time to write my idea out. I will record myself when filming using a personal camera with which I will be able to take screenshot from to show my work. I also intend to scan any concept drawings I do to further show how I intend to complete this project. Using all of these techniques I believe that I will be able to successfully and accurately as they come together as a quite concise whole.
