<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>
<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>
<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>

<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>
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.
<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>
<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>
