Design Your Own Movie Poster!
This fall, the National accessArts Centre is hosting an exhibition for NaAC artists who are interested in creating their very own movie poster!
How to get involved:
- Think of a movie that hasn’t been invented yet. It can be a brand new movie or an adaptation of one of your favourites! If you can’t think of one, the NaAC Studio Facilitators and team are here to help guide you.
- Create a movie poster using the materials of your choosing. Feel free to get creative with your choices!
- Finish making your movie poster before October 31, 2021, and talk to a NaAC Studio Facilitator about how to fill out the submission form.
Here are some ideas to help you think about your movie:
- What kind of movie is it (action, fantasy, romance, comedy, horror, etc.)?
- Where does your movie take place (in the forest, in a galaxy far away, in New York City, under the sea, in medieval times, etc.)?
- Who are the main characters?
- Are there any famous actors or celebrities you would choose to star in your film?
- What is the title of your movie?
Here are some ideas to help you think about your poster design:
- How large do you want your poster to be? Official movie posters are often 27” x 40” but you can make your poster as big or small as you would like. Smaller posters (8.5” x 11” or 11” x 17”) are easier to make copies of and sell. You can also use them for gifts!
- Do you want to add text to your poster? You could include things like:
- The title of your movie
- The main actors or characters in the movie
- The day your movie will be released in the theatre
- How much money does a movie ticket cost?
- Any other details you want to add!
- What images or colours do you want to use to tell people what your movie is about?
- Horror film posters may use darker colours like black and red to seem scarier.
- Romance films may use shades of red, pink or lighter colours, and show people kissing or holding hands.
- Action films may show epic explosions, people swinging swords, or pointing guns.
These are just some examples but feel free to get creative and represent your movie in whatever way feels right to you!
