Large, capital, prominent text for the mast head, that are eye-catching and on the layer above the main image. Other important text always has a colour scheme to make certain information stand out-text always contrasts with the back ground colours but still complement each other. Good examples of covers that have more than one figure on the front, which is one of the possibilities for my cover that will be of the two sisters in my trailer. Making specific and important words stand out from others. Large image in the background behind the text and figures, which I could possibly use for mine with maybe a picture of the front of a train instead of a compass.
Two covers with the same film cover and quite similar approaches..... Mast head of both prominent feature on the cover One large image of a single figure that dominates the cover. Both have the image in the centre of the cover as well as the the important text that too in large and centred. Text on both keep to a colour scheme- Blue and white Red, grey and black
I like the idea of having the text on the wall that my main character or characters is leaning against. Still keeping the masthead very prominent. Make the important information about my trailer/'film' larger and more noticeable Keep to a simplistic scheme of colours and font choice. The masthead behind the figure is interesting as it looks like graffiti on the wall and less like a magazine cover. I think I prefer this idea rather than your typical cover with the text on top of the image.
Still large close up image of main character dominating the cover Important text much larger than others, keeping to a colour scheme of red, black and white. Different approach to the masthead, instead of filling the whole top of the magazine cover it is only in the corner in a different more formal text. I like the idea of having another layer of something related to the film on top of the image of the person. The gunshot hole in the glass suggests to the audience that the film advertised will be an action film. I could maybe use something similar with a transparent train going across the bottom of the page.
Very bold florescent text that will grab the attention of the audience. Image looks like coming out of the cover. Images on background look like inspired by comic book designs, which is very relevant to the style and inspiration of the film 'KICK ASS' Normal masthead changed to relate to the film, text made up of what looks like blood, suggesting the violence of the film. Text still keeping to the colour scheme
I like the simplistic colour scheme of black and white and red. I'd like to possibly use a black and white image my cover as it will give an eeriness and mystery to the film. Large attention grabbing text, all in capital letters
An example of a British Social realism film being on the cover- 'Trainspotting'. The image like many others is one figure that dominates the cover. Bold large text that keeps to a colour scheme of black, yellow, red and white. I think I'm better to get inspiration for my magazine cover from this sort of style as the film is the same sort of genre as my own trailer.
