Poster analysis First draftAfter analysing several posters in class and at homewe were given the task of creating our own, to begin I attempted two rough drafts on paper These needed to include the conventions of a film poster such as: title, cast, billing block, date, a motto and website. Some are present in the poster on the right while the rest are present on the left.

Below are some examples of photos taken. An example of his positive personalityAn example of his negative personality
First computer draft developmentAfter the first draft and photo shoot I took evidenceof the development stage of my first draft. I began by adding all of the text and conventions from the draft but had to change the original image idea because merging the two faces into one created a distorted image.
