Structure of openings

In every film the opening is the most vital, as it sets a an atmosphere and gives a sense of expectation that audience would want to see later on the film to come true, or have a clever twist. The opening to a film, can depend on the target audience, for example, if its a fast paced film with action, and the audience expect instant sense and flow of a high paced film, the titles sequence starts whilst the film is going on a perfect example of this is the film "Taking of phelam123"

In the opening of Donnie Darko, the title sequence starts however it's a black canvas at the end but the only thing that you can see is the title sequence but only hear the sounds of thunder, and this technique helps the audience the prepare how the opening scene may be, and this also builds a sense of tension and anxiety.
