  3. 3. Promotion of the film: This is the official Facebook website for the film ‘The hunger Games; which kept fans updated on the film and included photographs of that film before it came out. The younger generation would most likely be attracted to the use of social media. This is a Twitter account of one of the main actors who starred in the film ‘The Hunger Games’. The example given is Josh who played one of the lead roles in the film. Here, the film is able to be promoted through the use of tweets to the fans who either want to see the film or love the actor. The younger generation would also be attracted to Twitter because it’s a social networking site. This is the official trailer for the film ‘The Hunger Games’. The trailer gives the audience a quick insight into some of the action that happens within the film. Anyone with access to a computer can use Youtube and watch the film trailer. This would encourage them to go and watch it.
  4. 4. Poster • The poster consists of the main actress within the film ‘The Hunger Games.’ She is staring directly at the viewer who is looking at the poster. She is seen to be holding an arrow with a burning flame on the end which is pointed towards the audience. This has been done in order to attract the eye of the intended audience. The bright colours used within the poster i.e. the oranges and reds contrasts against the darker colours i.e. to blacks and browns found on her face. This therefore makes the arrow (which is the main weapon used within the film) become the main subject in the poster. The bright colours automatically grabs the audience’s attention and draws their eye to the poster. The text varies from big to small. The main big pieces of text include the title of the film, the slogan and the date that it is out. This has been enlarged compared to the rest because it is the key information that the audience wants to read about the film. The less important information is seen to be at the bottom of the page and smaller so it doesn’t stand out as much. This is due to the fact that the audience does not really need to know this information as it isn’t key.
  5. 5. Merchandise Merchandise is a key part in spreading the word and promoting the film. In this case, merchandise like t-shirts, jumpers, bags, and kitchen products are sold with ‘The Hunger Games’ theme and slogan written in a variety of different ways. By creating merchandise, the film’s awareness is increased and more money is made through the sales of these products. The merchandise helps to promote the film due to the fact that if more people are wearing the design in public, there is a higher chance of people seeing it. The fact that money is made from the sales of the merchandise is also a good way to gain profit if the film is successful.

The trailer indicates to the audience what is going to be within the film and therefore tries its best to attract the targeted audience.
  12. 12. Poster • The poster for the UK film ‘Fish Tank’ uses a variety of different colours – both dull and bright colours. The dull colours are found in the actual picture of the woman on the poster. The dull colours have been used to reflect the woman’s story – the colours symbolise real life colours. The brighter colours like the pinks and blues have been used to inform the audience about the film itself. The blues and pinks show the title, credits and ratings of the film. The biggest piece of text is that of the title. This has been done to allow for the audience to see the name of the film straight away without having to look too far. The ratings on the film has been used in order to attract the audience to want to watch the film as the ratings show what other people who have seen it think of it. The fact that the film has gotten 5 stars out of 5 by multiple people shows that the film is a good film. This has therefore been put on the poster to inform people of that.
