@cire792 very funny! I didn’t even think about that. But thankyou for correctly referring to the deer as a deer instead of a reindeer, seriously your one of about 2 people that didn’t call him a reindeer.
Just wanted to say to everyone thanks a ton for providing SOO much feedback on my poster. This is exactly what I needed. I was trying to replicate the style movie poster they did for Lord of the Rings.
Some of you commented that there were too many characters on the poster, however, I think to replicate Lord of the Ring’s style poster, I needed more characters. Just also as gregzaal said: more contrast to draw the attention to the main character.
The Bearfish (called a Salmon Bear) and the Deer. Are important characters in the movie even though they both only make small appearances. I figured any movie with CG characters would look enticing to me so I put them on the poster.
I’ve considered all the suggestions given and at first I was thinking that it would be best just to redo the poster completely with a shot of the main character against an environment significant to the film’s plot. But I just can’t come up with a good enough image in my head. Every picture I imagine looks too bland to be used for a movie poster. And also this poster is more for the actors than for marketing purposes (the movie will be on youtube for free) so I want to leave it the same style as it is currently for some of the actors sake because I know they would want to see themselves on it.
Here’s what I will change.
-More contrast, especially around the edges to draw attention to the center.
-New Font for titles and names.
-fix background texture.
-change placement of demon’s hand and deer’s ass. (actually some people might get a kick out of that).
I also want to know your new opinion about the two CG characters now that you know more about them and why I put them there. What were you thinking when you first saw them on the poster? I’d compare them to the black riders on the Lord of the Rings poster. They’re something different and it makes you wonder “what are they, why are they there” and makes you want to see the movie more. That’s just my opinion but I’m not an experienced movie poster creator, so let me know what your second opinion about them is.
Thanks again for the great feedback!
