Hey there! If you are reading this post on film then that means you must have enjoyed nerding out with me on the last one about color. I had no idea how crucial the opening shot is or the importance of the beginning in setting the tone for the entirety for the movie as well as giving information needed to know to continue on in the story. So please enjoy this video on the importance of the opening shot of the film.
Also, I would love to hear your thoughts on opening shots below. What opening shots/ scenes do you think were effective? Or even which opening shots do you just enjoy or grab your attention? There are no wrong answers here.
