  • Blumler and Katz‟s Uses and Gratifications theory states that the audience playsan active role when choosing media texts and simply „what people do with media‟(Katz, 1959). According to the theory, media texts fulfil four main needs: Personal Identity: Text which allows us to Entertainment (Diversion): Allows us to discover something about ourselves by escape from our daily lives, for example by agreeing or disagreeing with what we see. watching TV dramas or action movies, or reading about music artists’ lives. Information (Surveillance): Text which Personal Relationships: Media texts appeal enables us to find out something about to certain social groups and after the world. It keeps us informed and up to consuming a media text a particular social date with what’s going on around us, group can communicate and relate to each whether it is news, music or appeals, etc. other by this text. I will aim for my magazine, Country Avenue, to apply to Information, Diversion and to some extent Personal Relationships out of the four categories. I will create this through my content (interviews, artist profiles) and mode of address.
  • Planning is a vital aspect of this project. Firstly, I created a calendar with brief details about what I was going todo each day – precise to the hour. In the calendar I ticked off tasks which I had completed to help me keep track ofmy progress. I made a list of five models who I thought would suit the country themed magazine and verballyasked them if they‟d be available for a photoshoot. Three of them had agreed to be part of the shoot. The sameday I sent out an e-mail via the college system with a rough schedule of times and dates and requested for aconfirmation or adjustment for those dates. I kept in contact with each of the models in college, through mobilephones and online to let them know that the shoot is still going ahead. On the first day of the photoshoot, due tothe bad weather I hadn‟t been able to go ahead with Crystal‟s photoshoot as it was raining, the benched were wetand there was a misunderstanding with the student who was lending me the guitar. Therefore, this weekend I willbe sending out another e-mails asking Crystal for another shoot. Amber and Emma‟s photoshoot went aheadsuccessfully as they were under a roof or inside the building. I organised the locations keeping in mind the suitability of the settings as well as trying to pick spots where thecrowds aren‟t big. I had chosen simple locations so that the background isn‟t distracting, but artistic, so that theaudience is able to focus on the model and the mise-en-scene, not the surroundings. Filling out the location recceinformed me in depth about the circumstances I would need to take into consideration. Furthermore, I madesketches of the “storyboard” which illustrates the specific types of shots and camera angels for the images. Idecided that I will take them all using long shot, so that I can edit and alter them as I go on. I accurately organisedthe mis-en-scene, having asked my friend for a guitar (the instrument mostly associated with the genre), flowerhair pins (emphasising on youth) and a checkered shirt which is quiet loose and follows the codes of country styleand music. I created four different types of font for the masthead, and I will ask my audience to pick the one they prefer so Ican make my final decision. I also outlined the brief details of the magazine purpose and style to refer back to as Igo on. In addition, the flat planning research supported me in creating my own layout for the front page (followingconventions) and flat plan for the pages of my magazine, which helped me visualise my magazine. I picked naturalcolours for the main colour combination, with the intention that it conveys the theme of country and theenvironment. I will be using the personal mode of address to create a bond between the editor and the audience,as well as a feeling of community.
