Form Research – Opening credits

For our form research we had to research the order of the opening titles.

  • NAME OF THE STUDIO

Name of the studio that is distributing the film and may or may not have produced it (Walt Disney Pictures, Columbia, Lions Gate, Universal)

  • NAME OF THE PRODUCTION COMPANY

Name of the production company that actually made the film or name of the investment groups or companies that financed a substantial part of the film.

  • (PRODUCER NAME) PRODUCTION or/and (director only) A FILM BY (DIRECTOR NAME)

Director’s first credit, often “a film by XY or “a XY film”.

  • STARRING
  •  FILM’S TITLE (Optional)
  • FEATURING
  • CASTING or CASTING BY

Casting director

  • MUSIC or MUSIC COMPOSED BY or ORIGINAL SCORE BY

Composer of music

  • PRODUCTION DESIGN or PRODUCTION DESIGNER

As a variation some of the below may be noted:

  • SET DESIGN
  • COSTUMES or COSTUMES BY
  • HAIRDRESSER
  • MAKE-UP ARTIST
  • VISUAL EFFECTS DIRECTOR or VISUAL EFFECTS BY
  • EDITOR or EDITED BY
  • DIRECTOR OF PHOTOGRAPHY
  • PRODUCER or PRODUCED BY, EXECUTIVE PRODUCER

Producers, co-producers, executive producers, ‘also produced by’ (credited for various reasons according to contracts and personal scrutiny of the principal producer). Often, though, the name of the producer will be the next-to-last opening credit, just before the director’s name is shown.

  •  WRITER(S) or WRITTEN BY or SCREENPLAY or SCREENPLAY BY
  • DIRECTOR or DIRECTED BY
