On Tuesday 18th January 2011:
In class, we focused on the type of Font that we would use in the opening of our movie.
There are basically two types of Font:
Serif Fonts - Serif Fonts are generally more traditional and often slightly more formal then Sans Serif Fonts. For example Times and Courier
Sans Serif Fonts - Sans Serif are generally more informal, more modern and more 'friendly'. For example Ariel and Comic Sans
What does the Font PALATINO suggests as used in the promotion of
Rocky uses the font Franklin Gothic Heavy. The word ROCKY is in bold and is inevitably massive that it can not even fit inside the poster, this connote punches as it is in our face, Its almost punching through the poster .This relates to Rocky position in the film, a boxer. It is as Sans Serif Font, its much less formal and more entertaining. The character Rocky is a simple ordinary character so the font effects are in line with his personality, being a modern, less formal and basic character.
