This storyboard does not have a description.
another convention is having big catchy fonts for the title which should correlate to the genre.
Ok So when it comes to your poster, you used a the blood dropping effect to give it a horror horror. oh and it was also in red which connotes to horror.
Exactly, but i didn't make my title too big because i wanted my main image to be the focus but my title wasn't too subtle either due to the use of red which is what most posters do to get attention.
I understand, so the poster must also clearly define the genre?
Yes of course, that is another convention. The poster should reflect the genre of the film. in terms of my film, i had to fit in the element of crime and horror together. Most horror film posters have red and black as their main colours and i have used this in my poster with blood and the trees. This fits in with the horror aspect. The weapon and the dead body resembles the crime aspect.
So whats a tagline then?
Alright so the first typical convention of a poster is that it usually as focal image which draw the audiences attention.
Oh i see, so for example in your film poster, you had two focal images which is the hand holding the rock and the dead body in the pond.
Exactly, this helped me draw attention to the people i think it targeted as my main image is very interesting. It doesn't say much but it has visual elements that gets the viewer thinking.
