A poster is an infographic that can be posted to any area so that the viewer or the collective audience can think and feel something about the image. Like each movie poster you see today, the images for this project will have a specific purpose, with a little twist: they move. The feeling that you get when staring at the main character surrounded by friends or enemies in a endless cycle of movement paints a picture of what will happen in the film. The tension and expression is displayed using the images’ negative spacing and and other visual principles. To complete this project the many online tutorials and examples presented will help make the poster motion stand out.
