  • 1. Media Evaluation
    Continued ...
  • 2. How Does Your Media Product Represent Particular Social Groups?
    When I first decided on creating a rock and indie magazine I wanted my pictures to be really extreme, but I found that the simple shots were the best as the makeup gave them the edge that I wanted. ‘Elly White’ creates the image of a young, fresh, different and inspirational new face to the music industry and comes across as quite independent and headstrong.
    The photo from Kerrang is similar in one hand is featured in the shot and the facial expressions are quite simple. The one from Kerrang focuses on the costume more as it complies with the house style and my photo is more of a close-up shot. I focused on makeup more than costume.
  • 3. How Does Your Media Product Represent Particular Social Groups?
    I really liked the idea of getting to know a person through photographs and I noticed that many magazines had small photos of bands/artists with different facial expressions and poses to show their personality. I think by showing more personality then they can become more relatable to readers. These shots were taken outside and I chose to have everything contrasting to show how different
    She is, and the different sides to her. The photos from kerrang are similar in the way that the same costume is worn throughout and the location is the same. It also features a quote which I used as well as they show someone’s personality more too.
    Sensitive Fun/Crazy/Light hearted Mysterious
  • 4. What Kind Of Media Institution Might Distribute My Media Product
    I think Bauer Media Group would distribute my magazine as my magazine is a mix between ‘Kerrang’ magazine and ‘Q’ magazine and the Bauer Media Group distributes both of them. My magazine is a rock and indie magazine but unlike Kerrang I haven't given away the genre from the title and fonts. Ambient is quite a general name, similar to ‘Q’. I reinforced the genre through my images and band/artist names.
  • 5. Technologies Used
    Take Pictures
    Video Audience
    Access all programmes
    Taking Homework and Class work from/to home and school
    Posted everything relevant to my media course on, e.g. Planning and research
    Used to create magazine, took quite a while to get used to but I'm confident in using it now
  • 6. Technologies Used
    Editing photos
    Publisher – to align some of text
    Created a prezi for part of my evaluation, never used it before and picked it up quite quickly – effective way of portraying lots of information
    PowerPoint – To create PowerPoint's before uploading to slide share
    Word – To draft all text on before applying to magazine
    Used when uploading my PowerPoint's to Blogger, very easy to use
  • 7. Preliminary Task
    Lighting isn't brilliant, background is dull makes her look pale and not vibrant enough
    Plainer but more effective title font
    Less blank space, background complies with house style
    Title doesn't match the genre of the magazine
    Cover lines not lined up, looks unprofessional
    Makeup makes her stand out
    Lined up cover lines, all same colours and font
    Lots of blank space
    Too much text
    Doesn’t match the house style
    Plain font for main cover line, Doesn't stand out enough
    Eye-catching main cover line font, less text
    Matches house style
  • 8. Preliminary Task
    Less blank space
    Matches cover, simple but effective
    Font looks out of place
    Lots of blank space
    Background is dull
    Titles in pink - easy to navigate
    Colours don't match up, too many colours
    No text glows and only three colours used.
    Not much contents and font is very large
    A lot more contents, smaller font
    Text around photos, not stretched and not just added on
    Photos just look added on, and one is a bit too stretched
  • 9. Improvements
    To improve my magazine I should have made sure the editor’s note text didn't overlap the picture and I should have put page numbers on my contents and double page spread pages. The only part that I believe lets my magazine down is the contents page, as I concentrated so much on cramming lots of contents on to it I think it looks to textual and the least professional out of the 3 pages I created.
  • 10. Audience For My Media Product
    Aimed at a teenage audience who are into rock/indie styled music
    Predominant female audience
    Music makes up a big part of their lives, so much so that it influences how they dress, how they colour and style their hair and their behaviour and attitudes
    Enjoys gigs, likes to keep-up-to-date with their favourite bands/artists, posters
    Believes that friends and their peer group are very important in portraying their identity
  • 11. How I Attracted/Addressed my Audience
  • 12. Bold colours: Pink & Black
    Heavy eye make-up
    Determined expression, engages the reader
    Simple fonts, become effective due to the listing of all bands/artists – All names were created to sound ‘Rock’ or ‘Indie’ style, reinforces the genre
    Chance to win gig tickets
  • 13. Gig information
    Photos relevant to genre, not really happy and smiling, dress sense, makeup
    Articles/interviews able to keep readers up to date on their favourite artists/bands
  • 14. Language: chatty, friendly ‘I want it to be crazy, crazier than GAGA’S!’
    Sense of individuality
    Getting to know her, background information, sets scene
    Gig information
    Elly White – Relatable and inspiring, comes out in the interview
