EDITING MY FILM MAGAZINE FRONT COVER

EDITING MY FILM MAGAZINE FRONT COVER

Kate Bradford

STEP 1

I picked a suitable photo from the selection I had taken.

STEP 2

I used the Lasoo on Photoshop to cut out the protagonist, Aarons, face.

I used this photo for my film poster I wanted to create continuity by using it on my film magazine front cover.

STEP 3

I picked a photo from the selection I had taken.

I used this photo for my film poster I wanted to create continuity by using it on my film magazine front cover.

STEP 4

I altered the opacity of the photo by using the Transform > Opacity tool on EDIT.

STEP 5

After trying to copy the sky photo used in STEP 4 and the photo turning blurry and losing resolution I found it easier to create a background my self.I used the paint brush and stippling tool on the right hand side menu. I created cloud effects across the page to create a grainy, irregular and smudgy effect.

STEP 6

I the pasted the photo in STEP 1 and pasted it onto the background made in STEP 5.

STEP 7

I then used the Eraser tool and smudged/erased the corners of the photos, creating a ripped and broken effect. I thought this followed the genre codes and conventions by creating jeopardy and suspense as if the protagonist, Aaron, is being suspected as a criminal and questioned over his identity.

This follows my film trailers genre and storyline.

STEP 8

I then continued to smudge/erase the corners and middle sections of the photo adding to the burnt effect.

STEP 9

I then added my film magazine title TOPFILM.

I wanted to follow the same style as EMPIRE magazine with big, bold red writing stretching over the top middle section of the front cover; attracting and addressing the audience due to the eye-catching design.

STEP 10

I then adapted the boldness of the font using the FONT tool and eraser tool to sharpen the font making it thinner and sharper.

STEP 11

I then added the Over Line HERE COME THE BRITS!

STEP 12

I then adapted the Cover Line font changing each word from RED to BLACK each.

I wanted the font to be eye-catching, bold and vibrant attracting and addressing the audiences attention.

STEP 13

After adapting the colour of the font of each word I found that having the exclamation mark in RED matching the word BRITS made them merge together and almost disappear against the film magazines title.

STEP 14

After experimenting in STEP 13 and STEP 14 I went back to my original idea and adapted the colour to RED, BLACK, RED, BLACK.

STEP 15

I then added the PUFF on the left hand side of the poster.

STEP 16

I changed the appearance of the font in the PUFF and made it curve to the inside, making it appear 3D. This would attract and address audiences attention.

STEP 17

I then added the Cover Lines at the bottom right hand side of the film magazine cover.

I put the title of the cover line in BLACK and a snipit of information matching the title below in RED attracting and addressing the audience, matching the colour scheme.

STEP 18

I then typed out the films title A QUESTION OF IDENTITY.

STEP 19

I then added the Cover Lines below the title. These cover lines are associated with the film trailer; having them close to the films title would allow readers to easily see them and associate it with the film quickly.

By reading my film magazine cover in the S method would mean they would read the Cover Lines straight after reading the film trailers title.

STEP 20

I then changed my film title to eye-catching blue to attract and address my audience.

STEP 21

I increased the opacity to make my film magazine cover brighter, making it eye-catching to the audience. On the news stands it would attract and address the audiences.

STEP 22

I then increased the font size of my Cover Lines on the far right, to make them eye-catching, bold and key focus to the audience; attracting and addressing them.

STEP 23

I then pasted the barcode onto my film magazine cover so it was ready to put in the correct place.

STEP 24

I added my last cover line UKs new star from The Unhinging & more! above the barcode.

STEP 25

I changed UKs new star from The Unhinging & more! from RED to BLACK to make it eye-catching, bold and commanding; attracting and addressing audiences.

STEP 26

After gaining feedback on changing the colour of my film trailers title: A QUESTION OF IDENTITY I changed the colour from BLUE to GREEN.

STEP 27

After gaining feedback on changing the colour of my film trailers PUFF: UNSEEN! DEMI COLLINS THE ON-SET EXCLUSIVE I changed the colour from GREEN to ORANGE.

STEP 28

After receiving feedback on the negative space around my poster:

I made the title of my film trailer bolder with a black shadow effect around the lettering.

I made the Puff black circle smaller as it was impacting on the main photo of the protagonist.

I adjusted the mast head to line up with the title making the cover lines, title, mast head and Plug vertically lined up.

I added my films slogan under the title so it had continuity with my film poster.

I added another cover line to attract and address my audience equally covering unwanted negative space.

I added a cover issue, cover date and price to match professional codes and conventions.

I decreased the negative space in between the cover lines and highlighted the joining words such as plus or & in green to signal to the audience that it has a connection with the film trailer.

STEP 29After receiving feedback on the background colour and features impacting the effectiveness of the background colour on audiences:

I removed the grey background and turned it a pale green colour contrasting with the red, black and green them, making the protagonists face and cover lines pop attracting and addressing audiences. I reduced the size of the black Plug making it less obtrusive next to the face. I add black shadowing around the left hand side of the protagonists face to make his head appear less isolated on the page, reducing the negative space matching the right hand side of the face making him appear bolder, commanding and dominant in the centre of the page.
