Film Planning Part One

  1. 1. My Movie Poster Planning (Part One) Eleni Papaioannou
  2. 2. The Layout • When thinking about the layout of my movie poster, I looked back on the previous research I had partaken in so that my memory was refreshed with the conventions of thriller film posters. • From my research I found that there is one structure that tends to be followed but is altered to fit the individual film poster. • For example, the film title is placed in the lower third along with the release date and sometimes the film credits. The tag line tends to be placed within the top third of the poster and the image takes up the majority of the page with all the important information placed over it ensuring not to obscure the central focus of the image.

  3. 3. My Layout - Title I came up with the name ‘Perception’ for our trailer which Chloe and I both agreed would be a suitable title for our film. The title of the film is much like the brand or logo for a product so I want to use the same font that we used in our film trailer for the film poster and magazine. I found a font called Disoluta FFP which I intend to use and it will look something like this: PERCEPTION It is a simple logo but it links well to the themes of the film. This is because the fragmentary and distorted feel created from the thicker outline on the bottom is reflective of the distorted reality that Bea lives in as she thinks her boyfriend Justin is trying to kill her. It can also be reflective of the fragmentary perception of the audience who from the trailer, may be lead to believe that Bea is the victim and Justin is the one trying to kill her however if they were to watch the whole film, their perception would change as they find out that Justin is the one that is in danger. This is another reason why I came up with the title ‘Perception’ as it is not only Bea’s perspective of Justin and life that changes but also the audience’s.
  4. 4. My Layout - Title Before I came up with ‘Perception’ as our film title I also had some other ideas that could have also been suitable. The first name was ‘Delusion’. The definition of delusion is as follows: an idiosyncratic belief or impression maintained despite being contradicted by reality or rational argument, typically as a symptom of mental disorder. Similarly to ‘Perception’, ‘Delusion’ links to the theme of individual interpretation but is a lot more harsh in suggesting that the the film surrounds mental illness. Although this would give the audience a clear idea into the narrative of our film, I thought it may be too obvious and not leave enough to the imagination of the audience from watching the trailer. Other names I thought about included, ‘Error’, ‘Drowning’ and ‘Misconception’ but in the end I decided that Perception was to be the best at explaining the theme of our film in an enigmatic way.
  5. 5. My Layout - Tagline A film tagline is used by marketers and the film producers to advertise their film to audiences by creating a ‘buzz’. It does this by summing up the plot or themes within the film to clue audiences into what they can expect. From this perspective, the tagline has a similar function as the title of our film as both will give the audience an insight into what they can expect the film to be about. At this point in time, my initial idea for a tagline is “what you see isn’t always the truth”. The verb “see” I felt was important to include because of the importance Bea places upon what she discerns to be real. “See” can mean to perceive with the eyes and notice visually which is what Bea does as she does “see” Justin killing her but she is not able to separate illusion from reality. Hence the use of the abstract noun “truth” as the truth is constantly being twisted and changed until Bea cannot differentiate the truth from lies. “Truth” is also reflective of how Bea cheats on Justin and keeps it a secret from him. By her hiding the truth, she unleashes a self-inflicting suffering onto herself which she believes is caused by him. By using this as my tagline, I am subtly hinting to the audience that when watching the trailer and looking at the other marketing designs for the film such as the poster, they to should be aware that their perception of the truth may not be what is reality. The deep and twisted meaning behind the tagline I have come up with is reflective of a psychological thriller film as it plays on the cerebral and intellect of my audience.
  6. 6. What I want to show through my poster Theorist Roland Barthes argues that audiences, “look for signs to help them interpret the narrative”. This is something that I have considered throughout my planning and throughout the production of my trailer so far as I want to make sure that every colour, shot and mise-en-scene choice has been made to push the narrative forward and give my audience hermeneutic (enigmatic), proairetic, semantic, symbolic and cultural codes that will give them enough insight to know what the film is about but also make them want to see more. Back when I was planning my film trailer, I thought about the five themes that I wanted to get across to my audience which were: 1) Drowning/Water 2) 2) Deterioration in Justin and Bea’s relationship 3) 3) Schizophrenia and Hallucinations 4) 4) Bea’s mental state deteriorating 5) 5) Death and danger In my planning over the next week I want to think visually and creatively as to how I can display these themes to audiences whilst using Roland Barthes codes.
