Main Article Content
The production of the main titles, which give us an idea of what to watch for in the beginning, is made up of both visual and audio elements. One of the most important among the visual items is the shot sizes. In this study, the shot sizes used in opening titles are specified and the effects and usage purposes are mentioned. As a result of the study ‘The Pacific’ TV series, which has an award-winning main title design in many international competitions, it is analysed in-depth over the main title shot sizes and cause–effect relationships by taking into account both the communication design and usage purposes.
Keywords: Main title design, shot sizes, the Pacific, visual communications, graphic design.
