TODAY! DUE

Movie Poster #1: On the computer. You will display your poster on your desktop computer in class for all the students to see.

Also, copy your file on the teacher station.

 

You will need to make some changes to your files. So be prepared.

Some issues you need to know:

  1. Billing should be 20% of title. So if your title is really big, then you need to make it smaller, because the billing will be huge. (there is an exception if your billing is part of the art. Then you put the title in the billing block as well.
  2. Focal point is the middle of the poster, so if there is an empty space in the middle, then you need to reposition.
  3. Do not repeat the actor 2x's. Put some other scenery or environment, but do not repeat the actor.
  4. Make sure the actor is looking at the audience.
  5. Do not ever show the behind of a person or dog.
  6. Do not put the title of the film around the stomach of a person, make them look fat.

Download your poster to see what Tom wrote. Ask me questions I have notes.

 

Demo- Prepping your file for printing:

  • Setting up your file with a bleed in Photoshop.
    1. Put guides along the edge of the poster (all four corners)
    2. Go to Canvas size and add .5 making the canvas size 11.5 x 17.5
    3. Make another layer and add your own crop marks along the guides.
    4. Make sure your file is CMYK (change in the mode option)
