This a very basic storyboard of whats going to happend in our title sequence. However it does involve the transitions were going to use from shot to shot, including pushes and wipes.


Over the top of our title sequence we'd like to use a voiceover, this is very common in other title sequences of childrens tv drama. Our voiceover would be something like this:

1) This is my town
3) and this is me [name here]
4) I have a whole bunch of friends like [names here]
4) and you guessed it the crazy parents
4) oh, and the annoying sister
5) you would think im any normal kid
6) but im actually... a superhero saving the world from the evil [name here]
8) bent on chaos and destruction
10) but to do that, im gonna have to work on my powers, yea...
11) I am [name here] and this is -
12) [Title here]

The numbers relate to storyboard and which shots he says it in.
With our coursework being a title sequence to childrens tv drama its hard to discuss narrative as we cant really portray a story. However the title sequence will have omniscient narration, the audience will know more than some of the characters know as this needs to be clear for our target audience to understand the concept of the drama and the characters themselves. We could also apply Propps theory. As our tv drama is for a mainstream audience, the narrative needs to be simple for our target audience to understand.

  1. Gina, this is a good blog, but I am a little concerned that there isn't enough of the process that lead you to make use of the 'comic strip' effect that so dominates your production work. Clearly this came about via a creative process... a process that is not revealed. This is problematic for the research and planning mark, but also for preparation for question 1a.

    You have some detailed planning here, but I don't feel that it is complete. You have also done research into title sequences, but I would like to see more clearly how the research developed your production ideas.

    Initial Assessment:
    At this point your research and planning is /Proficient/

    Based on the comments above, which of these areas do you think you could improve on?

    research into similar products and a potential target audience.

    organisation of actors, locations, costumes or props.

    work on shotlists, layouts, drafting, scripting or storyboarding.

    Time management.

    level of care in the presentation of the research and planning.

    skill in the use of digital technology or ICT in the presentation.

    communication skills.
