Extracts from this document...

Introduction

How do the opening ten minutes of Disney's 'Monsters Inc.' prepare the viewer for the rest of the film? Disney was originally founded in 1956, since then Disney has been making fantastic family films ever since. In the opening ten minutes of Disney's 'Monsters Inc.' the creators used different techniques to prepare the viewer for the rest of the film. The first of these was the opening credits. In the opening credits Disney Pixar uses music which is fast, up beat music is generally happy and jolly music. Also the opening credits introduce the idea of doors which is a key element in the rest of the movie as this is how the monsters enter the human world. Out of these doors come monsters who show authority over each other, when the smaller monsters write the words and the bigger monsters come and eat the words. After the opening credits there is a teaser in which they explain what Monster Incorporated in the monsters world does, which is to collect energy which they use to power there city with. The target audience for this film is families with young because it is easy to follow and has very childish humour e.g. ...read more.

The room lights up and a wall rises and a robotic voice says 'simulation terminated'. One way in which they attract the audience's attention is the fact that the monster is scared of the human even though it was only a simulation and using a dummy. The monster had bright colours; kind eyes and awkwardness all make the monster cute. Also with these human like features the audience can relate and connect with the monster more then if they were nothing like humans. The assessors in the background look very professional, they do not know what the monster in the teaser did wrong. This makes you empathise for them as they look new to Monster Inc. and very worries. After this teaser they is a scene where Mr. Waternoose has a short speech where he explains the importance in which monster incorporated has in the monsters world; which is to produce energy from children's screams. He then introduces the two main characters; James P. Sullivan (Sully) and Michael Wasowzki (Mike). The introduction of some main characters in 'Monster Inc.' in the first ten minutes, helps prepare the viewer for the rest of the film. ...read more.

Conclusion

advert where Mikey gets covered up by the company logo and says 'the camera loves me'. This is funny because mike is missing the point that he was on the screen for no more than a second and he wasn't the least fazed. Another point that the audience looks for in a Disney film is the hero and villain storyline and Monster Inc. is a classic example of this with sully and Mr. Waternoose. These all prepare the audience for the rest of the film by ether introducing ideas that become key features of the film or by the expectations of Disney films by the audience. The first ten minutes of 'Monsters Inc.' prepares the viewer for the rest of the film. The first ten minutes are vital for any film as it is primarily the decider on whether you will watch the rest or find another for the rest of the film. It is important because it using the teaser, character introductions and introductions of key themes to prepare. The teaser introduces the idea of the monsters having human features and emotions, the title and sound track sets the basis of the target audience and the introduction of key characters tells you about the hero, sully, and the villain, Mr. Waternose.
