1 Week to go…G324 – EVALUATION PREPARATION AND THE WEEKS AHEAD
In the evaluation the following questions must be answered:• In what ways does your media product use, develop or challenge forms and conventions of real media products?• How effective is the combination of your main product and ancillary texts?• What have you learned from your audience feedback?• How did you use media technologies in the construction and research, planning and evaluation stages?
By the end of this week you will…• Have your final music video uploaded onto YOUTUBE or Vimeo.• Spend the weekend networking, distributing and gaining valuable feedback• You will also finish your CD cover and magazine advert – complete – finito!
1 - In what ways does your mediaproduct use, develop or challenge formsand conventions of real media products? • Really, this is where you present your music video and link it to all the research that you’ve done. • Give examples of how you’ve met common music video conventions and what you did that was original, different or creative. • Link with how you were influenced by performers, artists and the process of filming. • This is about all products – not just video
2 - How effective is the combination ofyour main product and ancillary texts?• You need to evidence how your products will be easily identifiable to your audience.• Comment on how you think they are – successful? Are you happy with it? Does it meet the expectations/conventions desired?
3 - What have you learned from your audience feedback?• This is all about getting out to a real audience, which is why you must promote it to a focus group (video their response or record audio files)• Promote on social networking sites, show artists, get feedback, feedback and more feedback.• How did you use this feedback?
4 - How did you use media technologies in the construction and research, planning and evaluation stages?• You are effectively auditing your skills as a Media student.• There should be some reflection about how you have progressed since AS and what was different about this unit.
Presentation• Use a different method for each question and have each question as a separate post on your blog with your name.• The interim task has helped those of you who really went to town on that activity. Good practice for the evaluation.
Assessment Grids• Fill these out individually, not as a group.• Then confer and show me your completed grids.• I will then look at all your work and mark it in front of you with targets to improve work.• All evaluations must be completed individually by the time we come back (Mon 7th Jan)• A big push please!!!
