For our two characters in our opening sequence we need to make we have many close ups of their faces. We have to do this so the viewer knows the feelings going through their head.
I think these are very important for our opening sequence because they determine the viewers perspective on our emotions during the opening sequence. A close up of a person emphasises their emotional state, whereas a mid-shot and long-shot is more to give information and to deliver facts. A close exaggerates facial expression and conveys emotion. Therefore the viewer is drawn into the subjects personal space and shares their feelings.
