How effective is the combination of your main media product and ancillary texts?<br />
Music video, DVD digipak and magazine advert:To ensure the three products flow throughout, I made sure I had established certain themes that I could base my products around.<br />Rural, matching the folk-style music in the video with the images in the digipak and advert.<br />A theme of brown paper has been used throughout because I wanted it the products to have a rougher edge to them, and to also look more handmade and again match the genre of music.<br />Reoccurring objects and motifs in this project mainly involve old pictures which are shown in both the video and the digipak.<br />Similar locations, every picture taken for these three media products are located around the same area but especially in fields, woods and lake-sides. The photographs taken for the digipak have the trees and walkway in the background that were used for the video, hopefully creating a link for the audience to notice.<br />
Suitability for the band; My Bubba & Mi<br />Rustic similarities<br />Colour scheme<br />Natural light and lack any evidence of advanced technology<br />Consistency between the media products like the existing ones<br />Inspiration from existing My Bubba & Mi products<br />
Once finding a track on Jamendo and determining a theme and genre of music I wanted to portray I was able to plan the media products so that they would tie in with each other<br />Same photos are used in both the video and digipak to show continuity.<br />
Use of Photoshop brushes to make the brown paper bag effect in all of these products. Editing is used to blend and bind the photographs to the poster/digipak and avoid the glamorized look which a lot of artists want in today's music industry, however adding that effect to a folk band would completely contradict the values and iconography of the artist throughout.<br />
Styling of the artist is continuous:<br />Floaty dresses were mainly the look I was going for, for the artist but this slightly changed with the music video because I needed to use my sombre colours to contrast against the colourful ending to show relief.<br />
