I found this similar product on you tube a 5 minute documentary about the homeless on the streets of Portsmouth made by university students. From this similar product I have seen some techniques and lots of ideas for music and fonts. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vgKMfLHcv64
Title and Credits
I have decided to go with a black and white theme as I feel this is most fitting for the topic.
Fonts and Colours FONT font Font Font Font Font Font I I have decide to choice a very simple and formal font of Arial it’s a very well know and used font which people recognize and is easy to read. With my earlier project I spend a lot of time researching fonts, looking on the internet to download a shocking and different font this caused problems choosing a simple but effective options this project.
