For our title sequence, I made sure that I worked and followed closely to our given brief and specification for our title sequence for our movie of 'Genesis: The Uprising'. I decided to work in a group, consisting of me, Danny and Jacob (aka Bobby). Initially, for our title sequence and movie, we decided as a group that we wanted to essentially make a movie that would hold as a Dystopian/Sci-Fi movie - which is essentially a sub-genre. The narrative of our movie consists of a dystopian future with different cults and groups forming who aspire to take down the government of this society, however, the government is in fact one step ahead and are planning to overthrow and eliminate these groups and, they are tracking their every move via CCTV and found footage being sent to them. Our title sequence sets up for the rest of our movie as the plot/narrative is briefly introduced through the beginning of the movie via our title sequence.
Purposely, the title sequence creates and sets up enigmas for the audience to question, hopefully making the audience intrigued and wanting to actually stay on and watch the rest of the movie to see what happens next, such as: why the government wants to overthrow and eliminate these groups/cults and why these cults wants to overthrow and destroy the government.
In my opinion, I feel as though the title of our movie 'Genesis: The Uprising' fits well with the narrative of our movie as genesis means the beginning or creation of a narrative. This links with the idea of the dystopian future society forming and creating cults in order to overthrow the government and, how this society simply has to find a new way of living due to the new world order set by the higher classed government. Furthermore, uprising is something I found fitting for the narrative of our movie as this links well with the cults rising upwards together in order to overthrow the government and, come out on top successfully. The genre of our movie is a sub-genre of both dystopian and sci-fi.
