Unfortunately, this post had to be re-written as it got deleted when WordPress crashed on me. I’ve now learned to keep saving as I write and not wait till the post is finished to save it.
This is the thumbnail for my FMP. It’s inspired by the many thumbnails you see for trailers on YouTube. I wanted to emulate that to make my trailer look like it’s a genuine professional film. I didn’t want it to just be seen as a film made by a college student.
They usually have an edited screen shot from the film with a png that says ‘Trailer HD’ and maybe the title of the film as well. So that’s exactly what I did. I prefer it when it’s simple like this as it’s more effective and easy to understand what’s going on.
