DVD packaging

 I like the idea of taking the design from the packaging and taking it across onto the actual CD so that when it is in the packaging it blends in. I want to use this idea of taking the design across onto the CD so it is consistent.

A lot of these are interactive pieces of packaging in which the audience has to look in or remove something to reveal the actual DVD, this builds suspense and creates an enjoyable experience interacting with the product.

I really like this, it's a pretty simple idea but works so well because of how the CD is the perfect shape to reflect the product that it's supposed to be, salami.

Audio- title sequence

Not British enough, suitable to This Is England because of the Jamaican vibes- fits in with Skinhead culture but not appropriate for a generalisation of Shane Meadow's films.

I think a British song would be best to help represent the fact that I am trying to portray the work of a British film maker. I looked at using the same song from my idents but I don't like the vocals when the song gets past about 15 seconds so I'm looking at this again, I looked at it for my idents but I think the pace fits well and I think it's an appropriate song.

I looked at this because it is quite lively but I don't think the pace is quite fast enough to fit in with my drawings, also Ian Curtis' voice may not be suitable for the tone of my animation.

I looked at this Cure song because of it's fast pace I think it could work really well together with my animation I can only seem to find live versions now though which aren't of good enough quality. For the last 2 or 3 mins of this its all instrumental as well which could work well having no vocals.

Maybe at about 0.45 seconds into this it could be suitable but I think it may be too distracting because of the voice, the lyrics may be suitable describing this 'mad world' but I think it might be too complex to use with my animation.

Nid and Sancy

Lorraine showed me this in order to show me how oversizing images can work instead of using cameras to make transitions between images, this uses still photographs only but they move around the screen on an oversized image and work like this. Scaling, rotating etc. I think this will be helpful for me to do for my title sequence because I want the drawings to continue on from each other as they draw but more across the screen and rotate etc.
