Watching Documentary

1) Thomas Sutcliffe said ' films need to seduce their audience in to long term commitment. While there are many types of seduction, the temptation to go instant arousal is almost irresistible' I agree with this because if it is boring they will not be entertained.
2)Another Director Jean Jacques Beineix said that you take risk of not being able to deliver later on in the film if you go all out in the opening scene because the aduicene will want to see something more spectacular.
3)A Good beginning must make the audience feel that it dosent know nearly enough yet, and at the same time make sure that it dosen't know too little and this is good because if they know too much they want to watch it and knows what going to happen so it get boring and only a matter of time. However if they know too little they will lose interest saying they do not want to watch it no more.
4)Stanley Kauffmann describe a classic opening as the film starts as a classic shot of the city then a close up of the build then through a window and from the window into the office then you see person at the desk then you see the important person. This is successful because it establishes normality and this is not always the case.
5)Kyle Coopers title sequence to the film Seven is effective because it foreshadows whats going to happen in the film and the obsessive psychotic nature of the main character.
6)'Favourite Trick Of Film Noir' means when you put the ending of the movie at the start. this is a trick because the star of the film does not just make 30 seconds appearance.
7) The opening of the film shinning creates suspense because its driving to the middle of nowhere and into darkness which could be a bad place. The camera is like a predator and those who are in the car are like prey.
