Film Opening - Scott Pilgrim vs The World

Scott Pilgrim vs The World Opening - In my opinion Scott Pilgrim vs The World is one of the best films of 2010 and this intro sets up the story for the rest of the movie. The film is an onslaught of witty jokes, big effects and great music. In this opening each character has a brief introduction to themselves in the form of a black box that appears next to each character the first time the audience sees them. This box acts as a snip it of information that lets the audience know something about that character. There are as many visual effects as there are sound effects, for example when the doorbell rings we here the "ding dong" as well as seeing it in a cloud of smoke that appears to come out of the main characters head. This shows that it is his world that we are inside of. As soon as the music starts up the titles beginning to roll as we get a long zooming shot and an over the shoulder shot of the two characters sitting on the sofa while the band play a song. There are many mixed visual and sound effects during this part of the scene, as any character that makes a sound using an instrument, we see the sound in a visual effect. Then the titles start and we get a colourful effect for the titles going through who is in the film. Then is it comes back to the characters we are still zooming in on one character as the band finish there song with more visual and sound effects. This character appears to have been hypnotised by everything that was going on. We then quickly cut to a different room where the other characters are talking about how the girls seemed nice, then the scene ends.

Side Note - I couldn't find any videos of this with out the Screen Flow Demo on, sorry.
