I'd Like To Post About Your Film On Social Media. Have You Created A Poster?
I should never have to send this email, but you'd be surprised by how many filmmakers simply do not create a poster for their submission. Screenplay posters and short film posters are very useful. That is why, there is a space to upload images, to your FilmFreeway submission form. Accepted movie posters are used for marketing purposes. The industry standard movie poster size is 11x17 or 18x24 inches. I recently wrote a short book with tips and advice for filmmakers that are submitting their creative work to the Film Festival Circuit. A small investment, goes a long way. Do yourself a favor. Download this book and avoid common mistakes that filmmakers make every day when submitting to Film Festivals. Strengthen your submission and get ahead of thousands of filmmakers that are submitting their work on FilmFreeway. Below, is the first paragraph of Chapter 7.
Chapter 7: The First Impression Of Your Film Is It’s Official Poster
"Film posters are still as relevant today as they have been for decades in the film industry. Why, because they typically are the first image associated with your film. A good poster, usually contains an image or collection of images that represent elements in the film. Also, a traditional poster contains credits for several of the “above the line” crew. Including the stars, director, composer and cinematographer. Many include studio and production company logos as well. You’ve seen this marketing formula your entire life right? There are even people that collect movie posters as a part of history. So why do so many independent filmmakers, skip this decades old marketing step and create an official movie poster for their film?." - Would you like to read more?
