BY ADEWALE ADEYINKAPLANNING MY POSTER & MAGAZINE COVER
I like the fact that in these posters the face of the creatures are kept ambiguous to the audience, which iswhy the audience go to watch the film to find out who the character is. I also like the fact that the phoneplays a key feature in the one missed called poster, which suggest that the phone may be a key object in thefilm. I took this to consideration for my trailer which involves a supernatural creature and also includes aphone.

I want to use these magazine covers has an inspiration for my magazine cover because of theaspects in which they include such as; the font colour Red which is a Horror convention and alsoa colour that stands out in each of these magazine covers, it catches the attention of the reader. Iwill be using Empire as my brand name because of its reputation, and lastly I like the fact that ineach of these magazine covers they also focus on a object which conveys to what the film isabout e.g. Gun and a Wand which is something I will be taking into consideration for mymagazine cover.

These are my inspirations for my Demon Poster, I like how the figure of batman is shownwith its dark feature. In the wilderness poster since my film is based in the woods I could use the background of my location (woods) and put and like this poster add my filmtitle, however I still think its plain. The Blair Witch Project poster is one that really stood out to me, it simple but at the same time draws the audiences attention to what is going on, which is something I took into consideration for my poster.
I was not sure which poster to pick for my film, both posters include inspirations from filmsWilderness (Left poster) and Blair Witch Project ( Right poster). I decided to go for the poster onthe right because I felt that it conveyed more about my horror film than the other poster, I foundthat the other poster was too plain.

I also chose this photo for my poster because this is the main character that will appear in all stages of my marketing campaign, I wanted the face of the character to remain unknown to the audience to build tension with the audience wanting to know who it is, This inspiration came from horror posters like scream.I chose these two photos for my film poster because I felt that they related more to my second draft trailer of demon wood, whilst the other photos Ithought had to do more with my first draft Pick Up. I wanted the photo of the woods to be the background of my poster , this inspiration came from other Horror trailers based in the forest or woods where they would use the background to suggest the location of the film. I chose this photo also because it creates a sense of isolation and suspense. 10
These are where all the inspiration for my magazine cover will come from, I looked at Empire magazine specialissues and covers of when Empire are promoting a film, they would change the general Empire logo and subject it to the theme of the film they are promoting. One Empire magazine I looked at had a film poster advertised inside which gave me some ideas. I took all these aspects into consideration for my magazine cover.
