The 'Watching' documentary

 'Watching' reveals the secret behind a good title sequence and how it fits in with the rest of the movie. It tells how the beginning of a movie is the ultimate make or break moment of a movie and it could either attract or repel the audience. 

It taught us that we need to intrigue the audience to want to watch more, but without giving away too much as that can set the expectations for the rest of the movie too high and you are in danger of failing to meet those expectations.
 In 'Watching' we watched film producers, writers and directors comment about their ideal film openings. Some claimed a strong start wouldn't be benefitial for the film as in most cases it is the best part of the film, and leaves the audience feeling dissapointed. However, others were sure that the opening of a movie must be the crutial and most exciting part of the film as it "seduces the audience".
