Designing a Movie Opening Sequence

Opening sequences for  movies can either  be amazing or a bore fest that you have to sit through in order to get to the movie. However, many movies have created amazing sequences that hook you into the movie before it actually begins. The three sequences I chose are from “A Series of Unfortunate Events”, “Oz: The Great and the Powerful” and “Catch Me If You Can”. All three films use motion graphics to create visually stunning sequences. They do not use any kind of video or actors, it is all done with simple graphics that are put in motion. Take a look at the above sequences and let me know what your favorite is or if you know of any other opening sequences that are amazing post the link in the comments!
