Özel, Zeynep (2015) Current practices of Turkish independent movie title sequences: a survey and analysis of title sequences in new Turkish cinema. [Thesis]
This study aims to analyze title sequences of New Turkish Cinema movies to understand the processes of film title sequence production in Turkey and approach these movie’s title sequences in their cinematic context. The title sequences will be considered as “paratexts” that extends beyond the film and a unique language in the realm of both cinema and motion graphics. Collected title sequences are analyzed through their Economics, Commercials, Entertainment, Fashion and Art aspects. The analyses are done through a case study focusing on title sequences of independent Turkish movies done in recent two decades. The economics and commercial aspects of title sequences will be investigated through the production processes of title design. Production processes in Turkey are discussed in the light of the interviews with the producers, directors, and title designers of New Turkish Cinema. Two prominent examples of New Turkish Cinema title sequences (Bir Zamanalar Anadolu’da (Once Upon A Time in Anatolia) and Çoğunluk (Majority, 2011) are remade according to visual language and story of the movies. Remade title sequences are designed in relation to or inspired by the visual and narrative world of the film itself.
