The Other poster
The main image in the poser is of medium
close up of a female character (Nicole Kidman).
The purpose of this is to show to show that she
is the main character in the film.
The female character is holding a lantern. This
suggests that this film is set in war time
because lantern was only used in war times,
which means this film is not set in modern
The colours that been use are a shade of
orange this embraces the warmth. This gives
an impression of old photograph which makes
the audience feel sentimental. The colour of
the lantern gives the poster the creepiness
making it appear more ghostly which indicates
the supernatural genre.
The tagline “Sooner or later they well find you”
This tagline indicates that someone is looking
for the character or the character is looking for
something. This is shown by the use of
expression and body language of the character.
The background is pitch black, the blackness of
the background has been exaggerated. The
expression on the women’s face is fear; as her
eyes are closely into the darkness. The
exaggeration of the background emphasise the
isolation. Also the dark background is a
convention of horror films, this indicates that
the genre to the audience.
The target audience for this poster could be
females who are in their mid-twenties to late
forties. Also who are matured and sophisticate
audience and a fan of Nicole Kidman.
The poster is very effective in persuading the audience to see the film as it doesn’t reveal too much of the film but leaves the
mystery to the audience. The poster is very simple and it conveys the genre to the audience which is done by the use of colours.
By looking at this poster I will make sure that when making my poster I will use colours effectively to convey my genre to the
audience also to keep it simple. I have learnt that the simpler it is the more it creates mystery.
Red Riding Hood
This poster includes ‘Frim the director of twilight’
this shows that this film is going to attract
audience who are twilight fans.
The background image is of a forest. The fact that
the character is alone shows that she has no way
no escape. The background is very dark making
the character appear small this shows that she
doesn’t have the power or the authority.
The target audience for this film might be the
twilight fans. However, because of the use of
convention of horror genre, this film would be
suited for teenagers and young adults age 15-25
The tagline ‘Believe the legend. Beware of the wolf.’
This tagline suggests that this film is based on the fairy
tale of red riding hood. This is very effective as it gives
clues to the audience of what the film is about. The
tagline is in capitals this draws the audience attention.
The character has been placed in the middle of the
poster this indicates that she might be the main
character in the film. The characters face has been
slightly covered this creates enigma codes as the
audience doesn’t know who is staring in the film. This
will encourage the audience to see the film as to find
out who is in the film.
The costume that the character is wearing is the typical
outfit of the fairy tale ‘Red riding hood’ the colour of
the costume is red. The colour red symbolise love
danger. This shows that this film is going to include
romance and danger.
I really like this poster I like there is limited text on this poster but the main focus in on the audience and the image is telling everything about
the film. When making my poster I will make sure that I include limited text so is easy and quick for the audience to read and remember. I will
make sure the image itself tells the narrative or what the film is about.
