MEDIA: COMMUNICATION & PRODUCTION PITCH.Hello my name is Jonny KeayI am here to present to you a brief of my design for agames magazine, with a difference.
BRIEF - THE NORTHERN ECHO You have been commissioned by the Northern Echo to produce a new magazine or newspaper product. You product could be in any style or genre (lifestyle magazine, music magazine and so on) but it must be self financed through sales or advertising. You must also produce your magazine for a specified audience segment within the 16 to 25 age group.
PRODUCTION COSTINGS Post-Production Equipment + Distribution, £490.00 Production Personell, £829.30 Post-Production Personell, £885.30 Production Equipment, £2,115.30This may seem high, but this is balanced as shown in my rate card (nextslide) That if I price my magazine at £1.00 a copy, I will make a largeprofit.
AUDIENCE RESEARCHMy primary audience is the Geek/Gamertribe, my magazine offers the associatedconventions of these tribes includingGadgets & Games.
GENRE RESEARCHGenre: Video Games(predominantly PC games)
CONTENT Reviews of Free games Reviews of Popular Releases Discussion Articles Helpful Tips on cheap gadgets Affordable top 10’s Independent reviews (no bargaining) More Casual approach to Gaming
MY AIM Stereotypically video games is only for the nerd tribe. When really someone in the nerd tribe doesn’t actually like being branded a nerd. My magazine will aim to bring a more casual approach to video games. In an attempt to make video gaming as a hobby, more socially acceptable. I aim to do this by covering games which are free, affordable technology and take away all the seriousness of video game magazines.
