Why are opening sequences are important?
What is the purpose of a good opening sequence?

- Captures your attention and holds it, or it doesn't.
- Set the scene whilst also giving important names and companies who helped bring the film together.

- From the opening sequence the audience can have an expectation and are already making a judgment on the film that is about to begin.
