  • Both predominantly feature titles against backgrounds that aren't scenes from the movie
  • Both tend to have the titles positioned in the middle of the screen
  • Both have consistent fonts for the text
  • Both credit all the institutions
  • Neither seem to have a definite colour scheme throughout
  • They credit a similar number of actors


  • Scott Pilgrim vs the World has an original film score whereas Nerve simply uses a music track
  • Most of the titles in Scott Pilgrim vs the World flash in and out but title effects in Nerve are very random
  • Nerve has more titles
  • They have different running orders e.g. Nerve credits the director as the first title but Scott Pilgrim vs the World does it on the last title

  1. Sailesh, your post on sound is very good and contains relevant and accurate technical detail (please spell diegetic correctly). However, your comparison post seems unfinished and not up to Level 4 standard: please embed your video clips, and include more analytical detail as outlined in the Media folder on p.12.
