Font Analysis

 The FONT used in a title sequence is an important part of a thriller movie. We focused on two main fonts;
  • Serif Fonts: Times New Roman and Courier -These fonts are usually more traditional and perhaps more formal than Sans Serif Fonts.
  • Sans Serif Fonts: Ariel and Comic Sans - These fonts are generally more modern and friendly that the Serif Fonts. These fonts also tend to appeal to younger audiences more.

Here are some examples of the different fonts and their effects on the overall look of the movie.

 For the film 'DEJA VU' a standard Serif Font is used. The title is bold and simple which goes well together with the font. The font is in capitals and takes up the width of the poster making it more empathized. The title is rough-looking which gives a suggestion that the movie will have an element of action/thriller in it.
  For the film 'He loves me, he loves me not' a Sans Serif Font is used (most likely Cabrili.)  This simple, laid-back title again hints the same atmosphere for the movie, laid back. Also, it is written small letters giving it a sweet look to it. The title is in yellow and white to match the daffodils on the poster. This suggests its going to be a romantic movie.
