2 Minute Opening Sequence Of 8 Mile

This is the opening sequence to the film 8 mile. In this opening sequence you can see the names of people involved in the making of the film also you see the main actors in order of importance i.e. The name Eminem is first so although his name isn't in the title he appears in the opening scene as well so we know that it is his film or a film based around him/his life.

The music playing through the opening scene with eminem practicing his hand movements and with and pretending to have the microphone in his hand gives us the impression that the film is about his music career. Eminem is wearing old tatted clothes and the location he is in doesn't look like the sort of place that a worldwide rap icon would be performing in, so from this it makes us think that its from the start of his career before he was signed to any recording companies or was recognized. The way he is practicing his performance shows he is clearly nervous about his performance, going over actions and words in his head so he doesn't forget them. from watching the film i know this as he is sick just after this short clip ends this is obviously down to nerves as well. He then goes on to choke during his performance meaning he clearly doesn't psych himself up effectively.
