Poster Analysis Institutional references should be kept in small print and at the bottom of the page to not attract too much attention from the audience. The colour schemes should reflect the themes of the film. The main image should be a really good screen shot of the film that summaries what it is about or a photo taken of the main characters in a scene and/or position that reflects the film. Only one or two of the main actors names should be published on the poster, to show how important they are in the film. Tagline is used to summarise what the film is about in a way that shows the genre and theme of the film. The titles should also reflect the film through the use of colours, font style ad small symbolic picture. The layout should have the title slightly in the centre to show importance and the image should take up the whole of the poster to make it the main focus.
Magazine Review's Have important quotes from the main actors or director in a bigger font from the rest of the review, so it attracts audiences eye. Half of the page should be taken up of a still from the film to catch the eye of the reader. Also small other stills should be placed within the text so reader can gain more of an insight into the film. Magazine conventions should be used to make the review seem more realistic and professional such as the writers name, page numbers and star ratings of the film itself. A short summary at the end of the review about what the writer thinks of the film and whether its one to watch. This makes it easier for audience to get the main point of the review. The title of the film should be in a bigger font than the rest of the review so readers can see what the review is about. Information about merchandise like DVD’s should be added in a small box which can get people to want to watch it. Inside information from director or actors makes the reader feel they know the film more so they can go watch it.
