The evolution of title sequences.
How have title sequences changed?It's predictable that as technology within the film industry changes, title sequences will advance. I was curious to see how title sequences had changed but to add to this I wanted to see what has stayed the same. By doing this, I should be able to breakdown what is vital to an opening sequences and therefor what I should contain in mine. A good way to see how title sequences have evolved is by looking at three of the twenty three James Bond title sequences; this is because they are all part of the same franchise but set in very different times.
Dr. No - 1962
The Living Daylights - 1987
Skyfall - 2012
