Transcript

  • 1. Film poster conventions
    Genre: Drama
  • 2. I did some research into drama film posters to narrow down my research. The conventions seemed to be more simple than horror films, usually with the image speaking for itself, standing out more than the text.
    Tag Line under the title
    Really simple film poster with minimal text
  • 3. The image gives the audience a clue to the narrative. We need to carefully select the image, thinking about its inference
    The actors names appear at the top, framing the image
    We need to make sure our poster doesn't have too much writing on it, keeping the tag line short and snappy.
    Credit appear at the bottom in a much smaller font with important names in a larger text.
  • 4. Choosing the image
    When retaking the image we removed objects from the background as the writing will be difficult to read on a busy background. Once this photo is edited to enhance the contrast and exposure, it will connote the right mood of the film.
    We initially took this photo for our poster. I love the composition of this image and think it reflects the mood of the film. However this picture wasn't clear enough to be blown up to A3 size, so we had to retake the photo on a Canon camera.
  • 5. Portrait or Landscape?
    Although portrait is conventional in film posters, the landscape image gives more space to arrange the composition better. However we will try the text on both to see which follows conventions the best.
