The first ancillary task has to be completed by the 16th of July. I chose to do the poster first as I cant really review the film if I havent made it yet. To be effective, my poster will have to reflect the film and draw the attention of the viewer without revealing too much about the film. At the moment I want the poster to not show the girls face, but have it covered somehow with a background of the sky or ground. I want it to look simple and isolated like the character.
The poster will include the name of the film down the side in big letters. The poster is there to appeal to viewers and get their interest, which is why it needs to be engaging and a bit mysterious. I looked at posters for BBC films short films and searched short film posters on Google images. Most of them had poster ideas similar to mine.
I have included some examples ofshort film posters to show how they are laid out and presented. I will be taking some photographs for theposter tomorrow (12th July) and edit and create my poster and post it to my blog for Monday (16th July.)
This poster is for a thriller drama short film. You can tell it is for a short film rather than a blockbuster because of the film festival quotes and comments.I like the way the title is bold and the other text is a bit faded. I will incorporate this idea into my poster.
This is an ammeter short film poster.I like the way only one side of the face is shown. This adds an element of mystery, which is a key theme for my short film. I think the top of the poster is a bit plain because it has no text, although this does create an impact.
This is a poster some body made for a film trailer, for their media A Level.Although it doesn’t have to right things on it for a short film poster, I like the layout and the way the lighting conveys the genre of the trailer.
This is an animation short film poster.It must have been a good one because ithas many nominations and one win.I am going to include these quotations from film festivals on my short film poster.
