  • 1. Music DVD Construction By Hassan Yasin
  • 2. I began constructing my Music DVD on Adobe Photoshop. I used a linear gradient and applied a radial gradient over the top; to create a cool and funky effect. Moreover, I used colours that could relate to genre of music and the music video to continue the same style (vibrant and cool colours); audiences would know that the Music DVD belongs to this specific artist. What is more is that I started to download brushes of the internet and I imported the brushes onto a blank file on Photoshop; I did this so I could get an idea of how the images would look on the DVD. Various brushes I downloaded
  • 3. I used the brush tool and used a specific brush that had shapes of turntables, headphones and synthesizers; relating to the music genre and artist. I used a dark blue for the turntable and applied an outer glow by adjusting the layer style; this allowed the turntable to stand out (attracting audiences attention). To add to this, I used the shape tool to add some modern arrow symbols to act as a background for the turntable. Moreover, I adjusted the transparency of the arrows so the main image (the turntable) could stand out.
  • 4. I added some text that showed the artists name and the title of the DVD; the title relates to the album. Moreover, I applied a gradient over the text to highlight the artists name. To add to this, I kept the same house style with the texts; using the same fonts, similar colours and effects. In addition, I applied a texture to the background of the Music DVD. This was a ‘cloud’ texture which linked into the title, “In The Air.” In my opinion the title has connotations of the colour blue and of clouds, water and peace. I also used the brush tool again to add a rainbow swirl effect; I added this behind the title.
  • 5. I imported the image file of the music DVD cover into a DVD template on Photoshop. Moreover, the template provided a professional looking DVD that would enable the music DVD to be sold on the high street. Moreover, I need a image to put on the back cover of the Music DVD to give audiences an insight into how the DVD menu would look like.
  • 6. I opened a new Photoshop file where I could create a realistic DVD menu to add onto the back cover of the Music DVD. I started with the brush tool to create a picture of a disk, I then used it to accompany the text; it acts as a bullet point. I also used the gradient tool to add a background of white and blue; this gave a funky and cool feel.
  • 7. I then used the brush tool and imported pictures of a DJ, a disc cover and a turntable. I downloaded the brushes of a free Photoshop brush website, click here to view the site . The images give audiences an insight into the DVD footage and features, for example the picture of the turntable links into the “bonus tracks and remixes” heading; turntables are used in making dance tracks and remixing music.
  • 8. I then imported the image of the DVD menu I had created earlier onto the template file. I place the image under the heading it would accompany (the “smart technology menu” heading ). Also, I imported some text into the “special features” box, I used language that would attract audiences and gain their attention. Moreover, I resized the image to fit into the space; I did not want it to be to large or too small.
  • 9. For the spine of the Music DVD I imported the text and images I had created earlier with the brush tool. I imported them by copying and pasting them onto the DVD template file. I rotated the text and placed it onto the spine, the text is black and the background is white; this allows the text to stand out. Moreover, I imported the images, resized them and placed them onto the white background of the spine; again allowing them to stand out. Having a spine with text is a convention of Music DVD’s.
