'Every Movie Poster that Saul Bass Ever Made'

For those of you who have chosen the short film brief. Here is an excellent place to start your analysis of film posters.

Saul Bass was one of the greatest designers of both title sequences and film posters. Here you can view all of his posters, including 'The Man Who Knew Too Much', 'Vertigo', 'The Shining' and 'Schindler's List'.

Remember in your analysis of print media to consider all aspects of the composition:
  • Images*
  • Fonts*
  • Language*
  • Colour*
  • Layout^
*Don't forget that your understanding of semiotics should inform/be part of your analysis
^This includes the narrative structure of the poster. Yes! Print Media has a narrative structure.
