Film Poster Influences

Although the movie ‘Cloverfield’ isn’t linked in anyway to our film ‘Friction.’ We thought the poster was successful, the layout works really clearly with the strong photograph of The Statue of Liberty, and the other writing and information appearing underneath.

Also, it is a very powerful film poster because of the subliminal element, in the top right corner there are a group of clouds that very subtlety show the 'Cloverfield' monster.

We want our film poster to feature one large photograph of a location, that takes up the whole of the poster and to have some writing over the top. Too much writing can ruin the effect, so the majority of text will appear towards the bottom.

We need to experiment on photoshop to see which photograph looks better, and make several posters to see which one is the most effective.
