Examining Serenity's introductory shot. Den of Geek looks at that glorious opening scene from Serenity. It's a great read.

With all of the exposition on exposition Joss has done over the years on the intro and they could still only find three levels to the opening? There are five hard jarring transitions when we're in the Alliance's world. To let you know this is not a safe space. Followed by three soft and gentle transitions within Serenity's world to let you know this was safe.

Hard Transitions: Universal Logo to EarthThatWas/Voyage/Verse Montage to River's History Lesson to River's Escape to Operative in the Record's Room.
Soft Transitions: Serenity Logo to Serenity Exterior to Serenity Interior and Crew.
