  1. 1. Evaluation<br />By Claire Allen<br />
  2. 2. Question 1<br />In what ways does your media product use, develop or challenge forms and conventions of real media products?<br />I have followed conventions and forms made by previous music magazines because I know they are successful and would like mine to follow this, such as:<br />Masthead … bold. Stands out<br />Subheadings…still bold much smaller … want you to buy the magazine to read the articles <br />The use of 3 colours I feel is successful, makes the magazine look structured and sophisticated I feel all different colours can sometimes make it look tacky and there has been lack of thought.<br />
  3. 3. Question 2<br />How does your media product represent particular social groups?<br />My magazine represents social groups (the younger generation) as:<br /><ul><li>Pleasure seekers
  4. 4. Aspiration seekers
  5. 5. Future lookers
  6. 6. Ravers
  7. 7. Music fanatics
  8. 8. The younger generation
  9. 9. The In crowd</li></ul>People should feel like they want to be part of it, ‘the in crowd’ <br />
  10. 10. Question 3<br />What kind of media institution might distribute your media product and why ?<br />I would expect my magazine to be distributed in stores such as hmv and zavvi… I feel it wouldn’t really be noticed as much if it was sold in a super market like Tesco's. Whereas in the music stores the target audience of my magazine are already there.<br />
  11. 11. Question 4<br />Who would be the audience for your media product?<br />The target audience I have composed my magazine for would be for pleasure and aspiration seekers, the people that like to go out clubbing have a good time and love all dance music.<br />My magazines target audience…<br /><ul><li>Pleasure seekers
  12. 12. Aspiration seekers
  13. 13. Future lookers
  14. 14. Ravers
  15. 15. Music fanatics
  16. 16. The younger generation
  17. 17. The In crowd</li></li></ul><li>Question 5<br />How did you attract/ address your audience?<br />I used bold headings and pictures of people at festivals and raves where they look as if they’re having a good time this draws the audience in, I wanted my magazine to capture the whole mood and tone of a night out raving and they way the audience can really get a feel of the music.<br />
  18. 18. Question 6<br />What have you learnt about technologies from the process of constructing this product?<br />When I started I didn’t know how to use Photoshop, the first time I had used it was in my preliminary task so was completely new, from trial and error I now understand a lot more on Photoshop, I was able to blend photographs into the background, edit the colour and the shadows, and I learnt how to add glows and shadows to my texts and downloaded different types of fonts for my magazine. I now feel a lot more comfortable on Photoshop and feel that this program has really helped me to further my ideas for my magazine and has made it look much more professional.<br />
  19. 19. Question 7<br />Looking back at your preliminary task, what do you feel you have learnt in the progression from it to the full product?<br />I can see so much progression and feel I have learnt much more. As you can see on my preliminary task my skills were very limited whereas for my full product it is much more advanced.<br />For my full product I didn’t base my magazine on what I preferred and what I thought people would like, I actually did surveys and asked my target audience what they're preferred genres were.<br />
