Conventions of short film posters.• Short film posters use many of the same features of a feature length film poster but them seem to have less information on them E.G. the date of release and format of the film such as IMAX or 3D. There is an acceptance to the rule with the Beyond Black Mesa poster where they have given a festival date.• They also are very simple compared to feature length posters using one or two characters which are the main focus of the poster it is clear they are the main character/s• They also have the general information which would be expected on a poster the name of the film, a production company, the director/s names and the actors name . This is generic information which is needed for the poster.• The posters also give small clues of the film with the props or the way the character is standing, the genre of the film can also be seen with the fonts used.
