I have finally finished my double page spread. This is what it turned out like: This is my final draft on my magazine double page spread. I liked the way the focus of the poster is the top half of both pages; the eyes of Isaac and the title ‘Isaac’ clearly visible. I wanted to create an article on the reaction to the release of Isaac and its hit success.
While editing my double page spread, i was able to save drafts of the progression of my editing. This allowed me to correct mistakes that might be executed through the process. When creating this double page spread, the hardest part of it was the editing the fading background in as the colouring changed and there was still a hint of blue within the background. I had to crop the right side of the picture so the face was completely on one side of the picture. This was because the face would have been split in half if in the middle.
I have finally finished my Poster for my short film. This is the final piece, which includes the memories that the main character ‘Isaac’ goes through within the short film. I wanted to show the memories of Isaac’s for advertisement to show the viewers a slight focus on what the short film will be about. But then not giving away the ending. The picture on top of Isaac in Limbo also gives a hint to the narrative but doesn’t entirely give the movie short film away.
While looking at the fonts for my poster, I started to look at different font ideas for my poster, looking at the way ‘Isaac’ looks in different fonts. This is some evidence to show my research, but I am yet to find the right font.
Again I have continued editing my poster, combining the images that I have edited with the ‘Cutout’ filter. Making layers on Photoshop to add images I was able to finish my collage and have the foreground for my poster. After that I added the writing for the poster, using ‘Lucida Handwriting’ for the Title. I also used ‘Lucida Sans Unicode’ for the poster credits to and shrank the lettering to 9.5 size. I then added the movie award template and the stars, using the duplicate tool to create the same size awards. This allowed me to finished the poster. Here is the editing process throughout:
When looking at my new idea for what I plan to do for my poster, i decided to make a layout of the way the poster will look. Seeing a generic design and going from there. Though the image doesn’t show the actual images, I plan to use the Photoshop filter Artistic Cutout to get a animated, drawn like affect, to make the images more interesting.
While editing my poster, I screen shot some of my progress to show how I am editing, using Photoshop and the filter ‘Cutout’ to create the cartoon-ish effect. I used screenshots from the filming to create a montage of memories. I chose to only focus on the memories as it would juxtapose the magazine double page spread I am making.
