Analysis of film posters and the progression

  1. 3. <ul><li>The colours in the poster contrast rapidly with red dress. This draws the viewers eye to the dress and makes the character stand out, backing up the title. </li></ul><ul><li>The two characters in the poster are close and are expressing happiness and intimacy through their position and their facial expressions. </li></ul><ul><li>Through the above points it is apparent to the viewer to what the story of the film may be evolved around (love and passion). </li></ul>
  2. 5. <ul><li>The contrast between the top and bottom image that the two characters experience in the story, through the female being in a light garden, and the male being in a cold light and surrounded by poppies to symbol war. </li></ul><ul><li>The characters expressions give a sense of loss and sadness, reflecting the story. However with the central title and the poppies, this creates the link to the war. </li></ul><ul><li>The title strip contains a scene of war, and through that, the title strip separates the two images, also reflecting the story. </li></ul>
  3. 7. <ul><li>This poster creates a hypocritical plot to the viewer. This is done though the use of dark colours, an image of a wrestling ring and the two characters sharing intimacy through a kiss and their positions. This draws the viewer of the poster into finding appeal in the film. </li></ul><ul><li>This has been worked through a stage of 3 layers. Through the couple showing good, the wrestling ring showing bad and then the title finishing in good. This adds to the viewers confusion and interest in the movie. </li></ul>
  4. 8. With a two shot of the main characters in the top section
  5. 11. <ul><li>This is my first attempt at my film poster, after it was completed, it wasn’t as effect as I thought it would be. </li></ul><ul><li>I believed the image wasn’t as effect in term of reflecting the theme and title of my film. </li></ul><ul><li>Also the attraction of it was boring and the two images didn’t really relate to each other </li></ul><ul><li>Therefore I decided to redesign of poster </li></ul>
  6. 12. With a close up of both the leading actors one in each close I believe this poster will be more effective as the audience can clearly see the two lover are separated and also creates mystery to what happens between the two lovers.
  7. 13. <ul><li>Once I had got these pictures which I believed were suitable, I then manipulated the images on iphoto, allowing me to add a vignette. Creating the effect for the images just coming out the black background </li></ul>
  8. 16. <ul><li>However as my second film poster progressed I still didn’t think it was as effective as it could be therefore I asked my target audience for feedback on the poster so far and they commented on how it was not eye catching and also seemed a bit boring </li></ul><ul><li>For that reason I took the drastic decision to create a third poster. </li></ul>
