Initial ideas for front cover of a magazine featuring a film

Focusing on the genre of horror comedies our front cover would include an image from our film, coincidently this would be a funny image, implicating the humorous aspect of our main task which is the trailer. the background/wallpaper of the front cover would be dark, and grotesque using colours such as black and dark red once again to suggest to the reader that it is a horror comedy and not just a comedy, therefore its necessary for it to feature both genres. The title of the magazine would be decided later however the font would be suggesting “hollywood” as its a movie magazine, and magazines such as ‘EMPIRE’ would be our inspiration and the colour of the font will be bright, as the background is going to be dark, thus the heading needs to be bold and vibrant to attract attention and stand out, as its the title and people purchase based on name of a magazine and its status. Also, on the front cover there would be the movie catchphrase printed in bold below the main image. and other words will include possibly what the critics thought of the movie. Other images on the front cover would possibly include other new releases, and advertising other films and interviews and other features that the monthly/weekly magazine usually includes. the writing on the front cover is more likely to be light, as the background is dark, therefore its a contrast which will stand out. The target audience would be a much more wider variety of ages as its an ordinary movie magazine, its not specified for particular films, it would be from the ages of 15-65, initially who ever is attracted to film, is our target audience when producing the front cover, this is also a good marketing scheme to get other audiences who its not aimed at, a glimpse of that genre, and could possibly engage more people and the genre’s fan base could increase. The magazine would also include a “freebie” a free give away, to attract more people to buy the magazine. it would include a bar code and a price, of around £2, as we don’t wish for it to be too expensive like Empire’s £3.90 but we also, want to appeal to a more wide rang of people from different backgrounds and classes who aren’t so fortunate to be able to afford expensive magazines.
