    And last but not least (and definitely don't use this for formal or direct teaching as it says in the guidance).

    Great resource from Mr_X, thank you.

    Prior to seeing this I put together my own set of revision tasks for my students based on the details in the brief, available here if anyone finds it useful!

    These are great resources but surely the brief mentions a title sequence not an opening sequence? Have I missed something?

    I've used the two terms interchangeably. What it means is the opening 30 seconds or so of the show much like this:

    The brief says "Opening titles" so I would presume that would mean the first 30 seconds or so of the show from the moment the music / graphics start (e.g. lots of spinning graphics, jingles, theme music etc) and I have advised my students to have the last 3 squares of their storyboard as
    * The title of the show on the screen
    * An establishing shot of the studio / set if appropriate e.g. studio audience clapping, craning down towards set etc
    * A shot of the host being introduced or introducing themselves.

    I have told them not to include much more than that as it wouldn't be considered the 'opening'.

    For the storyboard, I got my lot to take their title and break it down into its individual letters P-O-I-N-T--

    Got all my fingers and toes crossed for our Year 11s today - I hope they don't throw us a curveball but I'm feeling pretty confident
