I'm an independent filmmaker and I know the importance of good looking poster for a film. Especially for independent films. Let me say the way it is, your movie poster is the deciding factor for the audience when deciding what to watch. As simple as that. It's beyond important. Imagine getting home from work, getting comfortable on a sofa in front of your tv, and scrolling through hundreds of tv shows and movies deciding what to watch.

Subconsciously you will choose something that stands out from other films, and you will judge it by the poster. With years of making indie films and doing everything myself, I learned why my movies are not getting enough attention. That is not because of how good or how bad the movie is, sure it's important but it's not a deciding factor. In this course, you will learn how to design a great-looking film poster for a film that grabs attention and stands out among others.

We will go through everything from doing research, finding suitable images for your poster, putting it all together, and much more. This course also includes a Photoshop template you're welcome to use to follow the course and to create your future posters based on. Let's get to it.
