Poster Analysis In this PowerPoint, I will be analyzing exciting film posters for inspiration and help when creating my own one. I will be looking at : Use of form Colour Design Language Attitude to Audience
Poster 1: Alien My first poster choice is Alien, this film is a Horror/Thriller hybrid, This poster is very good because it’s simple, and with the name of the film located at the top for everyone to see and the one sentence ‘In Space, no one will hear you scream’ this gets people excited about the film and will make them want to watch it.
Alien: Form The form is in the poser is very good because it’s very appealing to viewers because it’s so simple and it doesn’t have loads of images or text so it’s nice and eye catching. And nothing gets in the way.
Alien: Colour The use of colour in this poster is very good because the black background means the green of the opening on the egg is highly visible and this will get viewers guessing what could be inside it. And with the white text it stands out very well on the black background so it’s easy to read. And the egg itself is a slight grey colour.
Alien: Design The design of this poster is excellent, because it only has 3 main parts on it, first being the name of the film, which is located at the top like most posters so people can know what it it’s for, secondly the egg, which is the most important part of this poster, and with it located in the middle it’s what people will see first. And finally the sentence at the bottom which people will see last and will make people want to see the film.
Alien: Language There isn’t much use of language on this poster. Only the name of the film and the eye catching sentence at the bottom, because there are only a few words on there, it’s very good because having poster covered in text isn’t good. And the sentence will get people wanting to watching it. Because of the scary type of language used.
Alien: Attitude to Audience The attitude to the audience is very good on this poster because of the small amount of things on here, it means it has been designed so that the audience will see the 3 main parts to this poster, and with the important sentence at the bottom it will keep viewers wanting to know what the film is going to be about and what type genre it will be.
Poster 2: The Shining My second poster choice is The Shining, this successful film has a very good and unique poster to it, with the main character’s head being the most important part of the poster and it covers almost all of it. So this is defiantly what people will see first, and they think what it’s about.
The Shining: Form The form of this poster is good because like the Alien poster I analyzed it’s very simple and gets the audience guessing what the film is going to be about, this is harder because the film title doesn’t match the poster. Again this poster is extremely eye catching because of the single image used.
The Shining: Colour The colour used on The Shiny poster is very bland, this is because it’s most a white background, but the film title is in black so it’s visible and that everyone will see it, but the colour used on the face is the same as any other face.
The Shining: Design The design is impressive on this poster because it has a single image used, that being the main characters face, this is very good for the poster because it will get the viewers guessing as what it’s about. And with the text located at the bottom it’s simple to read with the colour as well and the positioning.
The Shining: Attitude to Audience The attitude to audience in the poster is good because like I have stated in the slides before, with the main character face being the first thing you see it will have the audience wondering why this man looks like he does, and will attract them to go and see it.
Poster 3: The Village My final poster is The Village, this is again another Thriller/Horror mix genre, I chose this poster to analyse because it has lots of different colour and language used. And with the design being very good as well.
The Village: Form The form of this poster is more complicated than the other two because it has a lot more details and images on it, but this isn’t always so good because it could be harder for audience to read it and see what the film is about when looking at it.
The Village: Colour The colour is very good on this poster because it’s set on an all black poster but the part in the middle and a wooded area which is a very dark orange, this is very visible to see on the black and you can also see what’s on the image as well, also the use of the colour on the text, the same orange is very easy to read.
The Village: Design The design of the poster is impressive because it has the picture in the middle so audience will look at that straight away, and the 3 sentences with small pictures at the top as well they are located where they can be easily read and the same goes for the film title at the bottom.
The Village: Language The use of language is very good on this poster because of the sentences located at the top of the poster saying. 1: ‘Let the bad colour not be seen, it attracts them’ 2: ‘Never enter the woods, that is where they wait’ 3: ‘Heed the warning bell, for they are coming’ These are also in stages, so the it keeps the audience guessing as what happens in the film.
