Movie Poster Credit Template for Photoshop

Credit_PicThis week I was creating a simple movie poster for new students to experiment with in Photoshop. I wanted to have the credit block on the bottom of the poster for that extra ‘authenticity’ but was worried that changing font sizes and positions would get a bit confusing.

Imagine my delight when I came across this great font which has all the relevant parts incorporated into it. To get the ‘Music by’ or ‘Costume Design’ for example takes just a simple keystroke. Brilliant.

It can be a bit time consuming to format it all though, so once I’d structured it for my group I thought I’d pop it up here for you to use in your projects too. This is a basic credit panel but there’s more included in the font if you need them.

Credit_Block_Basic

Just install the font and open the PSD. You can drag the Credits layer over to your own project. Remember, you can resize the font to match your own project. Enjoy!

The link to the download is in the locker. Just share on one of the social networks and its all yours!

    How do I use the ALT titles? I don’t think I’m doing it right. For example, I’m trying to get the lower lever PRODUCTION in there, so I hold down ALT and type 0191, but nothing happens.

    Am I missing a step?

    Aside from my boneheadedness, this is a fantastic resource!

  • Rod

    I have downloaded and installed the fonts. When I open the PSD in CS6, I get one text layer with all of the text. What do I need to do to access the individual elements?

    I am on a Mac Pro with Mountain Lion.

  • http://www.pixeledit.co.uk Eric Renno

    Hi Rod,
    All the elements of the poster are part of the font. Try different letters using the Caps Lock.

  • Robert

    I can’t seem to find the “a film by” element. Where exactly is that located?

    I can’t make the ALT+ ….. codes work? I will press ALT and a number but multiple titles will appear rather than, lets say, Mechanical design. How do I fix this? Am I doing something wrong?? I am working with a MacBook

  • Kacper Skowron

    Thank you so much for posting but I have no idea how to make it work…I might be overlooking something ;( I can not see instructions anywhere or what keys do what ;( bit frustrating….hrmmmm! ;O

  • Gary M Smith

    Love the article on the template – looking forward to using it.

    Is there any way to write “produced and directed by” in that font. It’s the only possible combination of options not on the list, and I can’t edit out the “by” underneath “produced by” in order to create this phrase. Thanks in advance.
