Title Sequence Analysis:

Camera - There is little raw footage in the title sequence for Luther, but it does combine an interesting use of silhouetted portraits of the protagonist against colourful vistas of the London skyline. This simply creates the effect that Luther is a part of the city and draws the viewer into the mystery of the show. The portraits of the protagonist are taken in a variety of poses and demonstrate his actions, hinting at the character’s identity.

Sound - There is no diegetic sound in the title sequence for Luther, but the revolving images are accompanied by “Paradise Circus” by “Massive Attack”. The song is fitting for the tense and mysterious nature of the show and the smooth, dark, title sequence it comes with. The washing transitions sometimes move in time with changes in the music, connecting the aspects of the title sequence together. The unusual use of vocals within the soundtrack to a title sequence works well to create the strange and suspenseful atmosphere, as “Massive Attack”’s soft vocals are mildly unsettling.

Editing - The editing is important in the title sequence for Luther as so much has been done. The way each image washes over the next in transitions is smooth and mysterious, possibly representing blood splashes and linking to the themes of the show. The sequence is fast paced as the images don’t last long at all before they are washed over by another. However, the transition effect makes sure the changes are not jumpy and the sequence remains continual. The choice of images is judiscious as despite the speed at which they fly past, they successful catch the viewers eye and set the scene. The titles are implemented into the sequence well as they fade in and out smoothly, while they also contrast the background effectively in a stark white making them easy to read. Their positioning within each shot is unobtrusive.

Mis-en-scene - The title sequence displays the London skyline revealing the setting of the show in an artistic fashion. The way the protagonist’s portraits are silhouetted means that he is never really revealed during the intros, building suspense. The colours used for the background are vibrant reds, yellows and oranges, possibly representing blood or fire and the chaos of Luther’s world. There are also images flashed occasionally like fingerprints, bulletholes and te protagonist’s inquisitive eyes. These solidify the detective theme of the show and help create an atmosphere of mystery.
