Branding the Band

All the fine details of a Professional Poster


Here are samples of the 3 kind of Posters I will be looking for. All 3 posters should come from ONE script choice. ALL should have a tag line, credits and a few fake reviewer quotes. All posters need to have the DATE, the THEATEwhere your artist is playing.



FIRST poster uses
blending modes, masks. and has a full credit block at base.
All posters should have their taglines and at least 5 BUGS
that go well with poster. I'll talk about this week in class One of the posters should have a hand-done title

Your SECOND poster
should be using the TRI-TONE we did in class last week. Choose any 3 Pantone colors to create your poster. Here's more INSPRATION
for your tritone

Also, some of Matt Taylor's Tri-tone and Quadratone layout's
And YES you CAN have SOME of your poster tritone and SOME - RGB. Talk about that further in class


Your THIRD poster should have
EXTREME Close Up and
EXTREME distance


All 3 are to be VERY different.
Imagine if you were my friend TONY EDESTEIN and had to do
THIS many for
"FOX CATCHER"


Here's your Checklist:

  1. Are you images sharp and silouhetted clean?
  2. Is EACH poster really DIFFERENT?
  3. Lastly, ask yourself, does your poster look like a REAL movie poster?
