Short magazine analysis

  1. 1. Contents Page
  2. 2. How many pages are used for the contents?2Are all editorial items listed? Or just some of them?Some of them only
  3. 3. How many sections there, and what are they? How have the sections and pages been organised? Is there any order? There are 8 sections, dominated by pictures and textboxes. The upper 2/3 consists of mainly images, with small textboxes on the side. The lower 1/3 consists mainly of text supported by only two small images.
  4. 4. Which images are used? What are the connotations?How do the images link to the listings in the contents page?How does the contents page reflect the front cover?
  5. 5. • There are portraits and full body shots in colour and black and white.• Image1: dark image, side pose whilst plying the guitar, happy atmosphere,• Image2: sad body language, black and white, depressed atmosphere, smoking, looks thoughtful, location shot• Image 3: Illustration, colourful, typical British scene (in text Englishman), funny, same size as• Image4: largest image, funny facial expression, holding beer, typical British food/drink, looks slightly crazy (links to his real personality).• Image5: dark image, performing artists, full body shot, happy, exciting atmosphere• Image 6: connected to the front cover, connected to content of the cover story, dark clothing-typical Rock outfit, full body shot on location, facing camera, and image suggests that their songs are not fun and happy, but more thought provoking and serious
  6. 6. Double Page Spread (DPS)
  7. 7. What is the piece about?The piece is about Tulisa; a singer famous fromher old trio band ‘N Dubz’, being a judge on XFactor and also her recent sex tape that wentviral via the internet. In this article about her itcontains what Tulisa does for a living, a bit abouthow life was when she was in N Dubz, Hermother’s illness and how she copes as a judgeon the X Factor.
  8. 8. How was the piece structured?Each main section is notified with a big bold letter at thestart of the paragraph, From the big bold ‘B’ It is all abouthow Tulisa feels about the sex tape and I assume whatpeople are most interested about since the video wentviral and the public love a bit of gossip. From the capital‘T’ it is about how Tulisa feels at a typical gig. From thecapital ‘S’ it is all about life as a judge on X Factor andhow she felt about returning for her second year after allthe hate she’s been going through since the video wentviral. And finally from the capital ‘A’ it is all about Tulisa’spast; how she started of her career with N Dubz and hermother’s condition.
  9. 9. What sort of tone and mode of address is used? Does this target the audience effectively? “She admits she was nervous about the X Factor this year” This answers everyone’s questions as everyone wants to know how she feels being in the public eye for the wrong reasons and then going back to what she was doing before as if nothing ever happened so people are interested to know what she is feeling about all this. “For now life is work work work” This shows that Tulisa is a busy woman and from all that’s happened the audience may be wondering how she does it.
  10. 10. How has the article been laid out? • On the page with all the content it is separated into columns witch continue onto the next page • There are also a few pictures there illustrating what is in the content
  11. 11. The image• The article consists of one page with a close shot of Tulisa’s face in it on top of sections of newspapers and magazines containing her name showing that Tulisa has been in the public eye a lot recently.• In the picture Tulisa is looking at the top right hand corner and if you follow her eye sight there is a big header that say ‘How did a nice girl like this become Britain’s most ambitious pop star?’ and if you look at her facial expressions she has an innocent smirk on her face. This is an example of mise en scene.
