Yes film makers, it is that time again!


It's time to start promoting your SIFF films and one great way to do that is to participate in the Film Poster Challenge to start creating buzz and anticipation for your film.


The rules are simple:

  • Create a film poster!
  • Add your poster to the poster album in the photo gallery HERE.
  • Right click on your poster once you have it in the gallery and click "Save image location" and repost it here in this forum using the picture location url you just got from the last step.
  • Film posters must be the correct size, see the details below
  • If you are going to use a SIFF or simatography logo, they must be current versions found HERE on our assets page.


Tips for film posters:

Create a poster that looks like a real life film poster, use google for ideas.

Be sure to use A4 international paper size, or  831x1169 dimensions with a 300 dpi resolution for best quality. Odd sizes will not show up in the Simatography magazines and will not be able to be made into a CC wall hanging for your game.


Tips for Promotion:

Post your poster on our Facebook page, on your own facebook page/blog/other social sites, on TS3 forums... anywhere that you think will get you some publicity and build a base of fans that want to see your film.Post it in our TS3 fourms page.


All film posters created will be listed for voting by our fans too!


Deadline is September 1, 2014


Notes on voting:

We will open voting as soon as possible after the deadline. The polls will close on film release day, September 15th and will be announced in the SIFF Buzz closing magazine after all films and voting have been completed.

Thanks for the notice and How do you do that

Go to the gallery and select the album that says film poster. At the right there will be a button that tells you to add your photo. Simply click on that then browse to the folder your photo is saved in and upload it to the album. Then once its done loading just hit submit.

Lola, and a reminder for others, can we please remind everyone not to grab random old logos from around the site. I'm not sure where the old ones are still lingering, if you let us know we can remove them to avoid confusion.


Our logos that we wish to be used are linked in the information at the first message which is HERE

Dice and I ended up dabbling over our poster together and I was the last one who had it before she had to go. xD So I'll be posting it for her!

We both made this poster together, not just me! It is for an MEP film after all.... first of its kind, heheh ;)

How do I add my Poster here lol?

 

If you go into the gallery and right click on your photo click copy photo url. Come back here to make your post and click on the little blue picture icon on the top and when the window that asks for the photo url right click in it and paste the link that was created and you're poster should show up. :)
