After deciding to change my plan for my poster, I wanted to look at movies using the computer animated style on posters. Not looking at the movies themselves but the way the picture animation. Looking at the posters with the human figures on them, I like the way there is still detail within their faces, so the audience can still see what chacter is who and how the associate the film (through the characters look) to the poster.
The similarities between each poster is very similar as they base their colour scheme of one or two basic colours, mostly seen in these pictures is red. I want to experiment with this idea and see if I want to base it on one colour or break the stereotypical idea and use more colours.
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.
Today I am looking at ancillary ideas, thinking about the shots I want to add to my double page spread. Looking at the memory shots that we are have taken/are going to take. This will help me look at the structure of the the page lay out.
After looking at other double page spreads for movies, from magazines. I made a quick mock up of what I want my double page spread to look like, considering my genre of romantic/indie and what my target audience will like more than other designs. This is my quick sketch on what I plan to do for my magazine spread: When looking at what type of pictures I want to use, I thought using both in a subtle framing will work well. Though I plan to use more still shots from main piece I plan to have one behind the scene image to show the article isn’t just a review on the movie but telling the audience the facts about making the movie and about the making movie.
Looking at my ancillary 1 idea, I want to replicate what I want to do on paper to show my ideas. I will be looking at pictures to help me visually with the close up of the face and and put in the title. Here is the result:
