Ancillary task 2

  1. 1. Ancillary Task<br />[Double Page Spread]<br />
  2. 2. Research<br /> I have looked at magazines, Total Film for the genre, and Dazed and Confused, iD and Vice for layout ideas as I like the modern style that they have.<br />I also looked at a lot of reviews on rottentomatoes.com and empireonline.com to get an idea of how people discuss films.<br />

  4. 4.
  5. 5.
  6. 6. The stylistic approach is very clean and modern, that is what I aspired towards in the process of creating my double page spread.<br />[no space for clutter]<br />
  7. 7. “VerdictA beautifully realised adaptation of a profoundly<br />affecting novel. Intelligent sci-fi provides <br />the backdrop, while in the foreground is a <br />trio of truly impressive performances<br /> from Mulligan, Knightley and Garfield.”<br />Empire’s review of ‘Never Let Me Go’<br />
  8. 8. Layout<br />
  9. 9.
  10. 10. I used Adobe InDesign for my double page spread because it is easier to manipulate text in than Photoshop. First I created a basic layout plan as a starting point, to gage an idea of how the piece would look. I decided to use the right hand page solely for photographs as I learned from my research that advertising relies heavily upon photos to create interest.<br />
  11. 11. I selected a new document in a A3 landscape format. Drawing up two columns which can be seen as the purple lines, and the blue lines. I then dragged from the rulers to make suitable placement for my text.<br />I dragged the photographs and dropped them from Photoshop to InDesign, making sure they were the correct size and format.<br /> I added filigree to the title as a visual element, I think that the design creates a cohesive link to the font used in my poster which is flowery and artistic, I dragged and dropped the design onto the page.<br />I chose to use a more simple font from the one in my poster as [you can see on the following slide] the font and filigree conflict with each and it looks messy. I feel that the piece looks better because of the difference and the simplicity of the style suits the purpose better. <br />
  12. 12. When editing the text, I made up two text boxes of the same size, and kept all the text at 9pt to obtain a professional and editorial aesthetic. I added a drop capital, the aesthetic always reminds me of fairytales which links to the film and also adds interest to what is otherwise plain text. I increased the leading to 14pt to make the text readable and not look squashed together. I also made the background an off-white colour by making a box and filling it, using a colour swatch. I did this so that the pages looked aged, they would stand out in a magazine next to clean white pages, and so that the dps and poster would flow together.<br />My aim was to take advantage of the negative space to produce a simple, well designed double page spread.<br />
