•In this video I will show you step by step how I created my ﬁlm magazine.
•The ﬁrst step I took was creating the background for the magazine. I decided to use the dark blue
background that is also featured in the trailer for our ﬁlm as this will ensure that there is a
continuity between all of the media products thus creating a house style and ensures our audience
will know exactly what ﬁlm is being promoted.
•I next inserted the ‘Total Film’ logo and created a water pattern on top of it. You can see the
process I took in creating the masthead in the presentation above. I wanted to again create a
continuity between al three of my media products and the easiest way to do this was through the
colour scheme which focuses on blues, whites and blacks. I also did this through the common
theme of water which is a symbolic code for Bea’s fear of drowning which is a vital piece of
information for understanding the plot of the ﬁlm. By placing the water pattern in the masthead,
the part a consumer is ﬁrst drawn to when a magazine is on the shelf, I am ensuring that this
symbolic code is immediate and clearly visual to them.
•Next I added in the smaller details that are found on the magazine such as the barcode, issue
date and website as these are conventional of ﬁlm magazines and to ensure that there is a
professionalism sustained through my media products it is important that I include these things. I
have used the font Futura as this is the same font I have used in the skyline for the the phrase,
“the mind-bending issue” thus sustaining a house style in the magazine.
•The next step I took was creating the puff which was probably the most difﬁcult feature to create.
Firstly I used the elliptical tool to create the circular shape you can see on screen. I then when to
the Layer Style options, clicked on gradient overlay and created a diagonal silver and white zig
zag pattern by changing the angle of the gradient and moving the scale to 146%.
•To create a shiny look to the puff I altered the bevel and emboss settings by changing the style to
inner bevel. I wanted to create a mechanical or steel-like look to the puff to be reﬂective of both
the mainly male audience for Total Film magazine but also the clinical and cold feel of our ﬁlm
Perception as Bea isolates herself from her loved ones and lives a lonely and cold life.
•Next I duplicated the puff layer and named the new one ‘PUFF RING’ as this was going to be a thin
outline ring to add a bit more detail to the puff. I selected the Puff Ring layer and held cmd + t to change
the size of the circle. I made it to be slightly bigger than the puff. I then used the eraser tool and
changed the size to 360 and the opacity to 100% to create a large hole in the puff ring to create a thing
circle outline that sits around the main puff as you can see. This I felt added a bit more detail and interest
to the magazine front cover.
•I then added in the cover line ‘Adrift everything you need to know’ as ‘Adrift’ is the name of a new ﬁlm
coming out later in 2018 and is therefore a cover line you’d expect to see on a ﬁlm magazine. Again I
used the font Futura.
•Next I created the main cover line which is our ﬁlm Perception. In order to sustain a continuity between
all three of my media products, I used the same font Disoluta and placed the text almost central on the
page making sure I left enough space for the image to be place above. This draws the reader’s attention
as it is in a much larger font that the other cover lines on the page thus suggesting that Perception is the
main feature of this magazine. I then added in a bit of detail such as the red line using the line tool to
create continuity within the front cover of the page as well as the tag line, ‘inside the ultimate brain
twister’. I chose this because it makes the genre of the clear to the audience as our psychological thriller
ﬁlm is all about how Bea’s mind plays tricks on her until she cannot separate what is fake from what is
real. The use of “inside” is used to suggest to the audience that they should look inside the magazine
and read on but also reﬂective of how the audience is taken “inside” of Bea’s mind and sees her
deteriorating mental stability throughout the ﬁlm. This creates intrigue for the consumer and will make
them want to know more about the ﬁlm.
•Next to add a few more enigma codes to the front cover, I added the water design that I have used on
my ﬁlm poster. On this layer, I changed the style to Hard Light and lowered the opacity to 38% to make
the water seamlessly blend in to the background of the front cover so that it doesn’t draw too much
attention away from the main cover line as this is the most important part that should be seen by the
•I added some more cover lines referencing ﬁlms that are expected to be coming out
later in 2018 to again show that this is a ﬁlm magazine. However the cover lines are still
a lot smaller than the main cover line as they are not the main feature article.
•I changed the gradient overlay on the cover lines to create an ombre grey effect that is
similar to that created on the puff of the front cover further enforcing the colour scheme
that I have used throughout.
•Much like the puff, I altered the bevel and emboss settings to inner bevel to create a
shiny, steel like feel to the text.
•Using the rectangle tool, I created a large rectangle using the same red colour I had use
to highlight key parts of the magazine so far.
•I then repeated this step to create three smaller black rectangles which I have put in
place for the photos I will be taking at a later date.
•Finally I added the ﬁnal three ﬁlms to the page that will be featured inside the
•This is the ﬁnal layout I have created for my ﬁlm magazine. Although I have not added
in the photos yet, there is still a clear house style sustained as well as having
conventions adhered to.
