INSPIRATIONS FOR POSTER (PICK UP) I like the fact that in these posters the face of the creatures are kept ambiguous to the audience, which is why the audience go to watch the film to find out who the character is. I also like the fact that the phone plays a key feature in the one missed called poster, which suggest that the phone may be a key object in the film. I took this to consideration for my trailer which involves a supernatural creature and also includes a phone.
DRAFT OF POSTER (PICK UP) Tagline which is used to attract the audience, also putting the audience in a hot seat asking them a question they know nothing about. The phone, which suggest to the audience that it will be a key object in the film. This idea was inspired by the one missed call poster The tree branches suggest to the audience where the location of the film will be, which will in the woods. General convention of most film posters by having the title of the film at the top of the poster. The colour scheme will be black and red which is a convention used in horror posters. Music notes with red blood dripping down, which gives the audience a hint to the narrative of the film. I want to make the creature the centre of attraction by making the image large, the face of the creature will also be kept ambiguous to the audience. Company logo and other information here.

DRAFT OF POSTER (DEMON WOOD) I was not sure which poster to pick for my film, both posters include inspirations from films Wilderness (Left poster) and Blair Witch Project ( Right poster). I decided to go for the poster on the right because I felt that it conveyed more about my horror film than the other poster, I found that the other poster was too plain.
BEST PHOTOS FOR POSTER (DEMON WOOD) 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 I thought had to do more with my first draft Pick Up.
