The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo Title Sequence

In preparation for our movie opening and deciding on a genre, we looked at a few title sequences to other films to see the elements used to portray the genre. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is a suspense/crime genre. Here is a summary of the notes we made on the title sequence:

- Fast pace music: shows the film will be action packed and thrilling
- Close-ups and tracking shots used: secretive, not giving away the full picture. The tracking shots show it as leading up to something, creating suspense as the camera moves slowly
- The shots are cut very quickly, in time with the music, not hanging on one thing for too long
- The low-key lighting and the black and grey tint over everything gives the audience the idea that the film will be dark and mysterious. It also contrasts with the images of fire, which symbolises danger
- There is a running them of liquids throughout the opening sequence, which could link to blood, poison and oil
- The figures in the sequence are presented as quite supernatural, showing that there might be something different about them
