4.4 Movie Poster Communication Challenge, by Rhea Agpaoa, Fall 2014

Part A: Design

Part B: Documentation

Why did you choose to use this particular image in your movie poster? What was your reasoning for choosing the image animation you did?

I chose this image because I like the potential movement.  Originally, I wanted to do something simple like animating a few bubbles or animating the lighting but I wanted to challenge myself by animating the hair.  Usually I enjoy animating very small and simple objects, so I thought I should try something bigger and more complex.

How effective was your animated gif at demonstrating legibility?  What are you happy with about your animated gif?  What would you have done differently if you had more time/skills?

I feel the movie title is legible and it’s a fitting color.  I wanted to go with a classic typeface rather than a handwritten font or a type that looks bubblier.  The image is supposed to represent the original story rather than Disney’s version, otherwise I would have made the imagery more illustrated and fun.  I’m actually happy it’s as smooth as it is, especially since I made the image fairly detailed and it’s hard to get CS6 to pick that up sometimes.  If I had more time I definitely would make the image a lot more smooth and clean.  This is my first time using Photoshop to draw in and that program is definitely not meant for what I did.
