REOPEN KENNEDY CASE

BECAUSE JUSTICE IS NEVER TOO LATE

Sample Opening Credits Add Video

Take no notice of the credits themselves. I'm just playing around with timing and photos. Once again, feedback would be very welcome. The permutations of photos and design that could be used are endless and although I am interested in your thoughts on whether they are the right ones or whether you have other ideas - - at some point an executive decision has to be made simply because I believe we will all have our own thoughts. If someone introduces something that has a wow factor then I'll put together another sample. FYI: Once, again I'm not entirely happy with some of the edit points. This time I'm also not happy with the score simply because it doesn't seem timed right. I'll be playing around with it tonight...

P.s, this is very stylish and slick!

Love the score and the 'Oswald' that comes out of the dark. Seems to me that it shows the sincerity, and the seriousness of the times. I think this is lovely! I wonder if the sepia photos could be black and white so they match the darkness of the word 'Oswald' as well? Like the warm colours seem to be at odds with the dark music and theme?

The atomic explosion first perhaps, as in many ways the Cold War started with the Hiroshima bombing and the Cold War was largely defined by the Bomb?

I'm okay wth keeping the same images for all production opening credits. If that is the case, we need to decide what cold war events helped lead us all to Dallas, and what events were crucial in shaping the true Kennedy legacy. And since Oswald is the real focus - it needs to be interspersed with pics from his life.... if all that makes any sense?

On that last question, Lee... imo, no. All members input goes into what goes into the film and how it is put together already. There has to be some sort of end to decision-making, otherwise we dither and dick around for another 20 years on it, and there becomes no real need for a 3 person "team" except to facilitate more and more feedback and input.

We could structure this way: the third person represents the views of members - all member concerns/ideas and whatever would get channeled through that person who then synthesizes and presents it? Maybe over-complicated, but just thinking out loud...

Depends. Are we having the same credits for all 3? If not, will those things be relevant to Part One?


Greg

My own preference would be to have the same opening credits/titles for however many films we make and the only thing that changes is the part number and title but the final decision to the question can be made once we have our third 'decider' on board.

The sample I've put together here will most definitely morph and change over the coming weeks. This is just a dry run. When it comes to stuff like this I'm a bit of perfectionist so will keep fiddling and changing things until the three of us think we can put it out there for review.

One thing we need to consider is shall we be putting short segments of the film, as they're completed, for the other members to review?

Now that I'm looking at it here - - somewhat separated from the creating of it - - I'm not entirely happy with the first few shots. The scene of Checkpoint Charlie, K&K and the atomic explosion I don't really think fits. But I'm open to your opinions

My idea for the heartbeat scored over the Part One title frame is to introduce the birth of Oswald hence Part One's title.
