Font is the style and size of text. The font of text varies all the time, and there is not a fixed font. Different fonts have several effects. For example some fonts are more formal then others and may be used in letters. There are two main types of font.
· Serif fonts (times and courier)
· Sans Serif (Ariel and Comic Sans)
It is generally perceived that Serif fonts are more formal than Sans Serif. In films there is a range on films using different fonts. These fonts can tell the audience more about the film and they usually relate or match the theme often film too.
The following are examples showing the different font styles.
Lastly another unique film style of font is Jurassic Park. In this film the font matches the theme of the film, it’s a sans serif font and the text has scratch lines matching the scratches dinosaurs make. Moreover the picture in the background of the dinosaur with its claws reinforces this.
I think I would prefer a Sans Serif font as they appear more relaxed and smooth compared to serif fonts which are really formal. I am inspired by the film ‘ROCKY’ in terms of the use of font. I think the font is effective as it reflects the characters personality and gives an insight into the theme or genre of the film.
