  • A piano playing music is heard as the titles are coming up and there are cheers. There are different clips of a woman who is signified to be famous due to people cheering at her and flashed from cameras.
  • There are some magazine front covers fading in and out of real life
  • We see that the woman is going to be a main character.
  • there are people guiding her through crouds showing that she is been looked out for.
Notting Hill is what inspired us to have a famous character in our film. it is a great story line and totally out of the blue as it is an unlikely thing to happen to such different people.


  1. Nicely laid out
    try to make title a hyperlink, eg to IMDB entry
    also, practice use of semiotic terms/shot types when detailing these openings, and where possible provide stills of 1 or more specific shots mentioned - these can also then be used in a vodcast, plus will be v useful again for your Eval

  2. the films you've analysed would make for a good eg of a links list [deign/add gadget, select links list]
