Media Studies As Production Evaluation

  1. 1. Media Studies AS Production Evaluation By Naomi Gayle Year 12
  2. 2. The Brief <ul><li>The campaign objective was to produce a </li></ul><ul><li>front cover, at least one double page spread </li></ul><ul><li>and a contents page for a new music </li></ul><ul><li>magazine. The preliminary project was to </li></ul><ul><li>produce the front cover for a student </li></ul><ul><li>magazine and the design the layout for the </li></ul><ul><li>contents page. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Target Audience and Research <ul><li>My specific target audience for my music magazine is </li></ul><ul><li>teenagers aged between 14-19. I have chosen this age gap </li></ul><ul><li>because the magazine is slightly to difficult to understand </li></ul><ul><li>any younger than 14 because of the language and the </li></ul><ul><li>detail I have put into it. I have made the age limit in my </li></ul><ul><li>magazine 19 because of the sorts of bands including within </li></ul><ul><li>my Magazine. </li></ul><ul><li>The bands are new every week, and I thought once above </li></ul><ul><li>a certain age you would want to stick with bands you </li></ul><ul><li>already have interest in instead of being introduced to new </li></ul><ul><li>ones every week. My magazine is aimed at the teenage youth because </li></ul><ul><li>of the style I have created it in. I would aim my magazine at both </li></ul><ul><li>females and males as it has element for both genders. </li></ul>
  4. 4. How will your magazine attract an audience? <ul><li>I intended to appeal to the audience by </li></ul><ul><li>including a interview with a “Brand New” </li></ul><ul><li>band every week. This is will make my </li></ul><ul><li>audience interested in my magazine </li></ul><ul><li>because they will look forward to seeing </li></ul><ul><li>what the next new band will be to enter </li></ul><ul><li>fame and fortune. </li></ul><ul><li>Another way that will allow me to attract </li></ul><ul><li>and audience would be to have a </li></ul><ul><li>bright front cover to my magazine, this </li></ul><ul><li>will allow people to notice my magazine </li></ul><ul><li>upon the shelf with the others in a </li></ul><ul><li>newsagents/store. I will achieve this by </li></ul><ul><li>having a colour scheme to my magazine for </li></ul><ul><li>example the colour scheme I have used for my </li></ul><ul><li>music magazine I have created is blue, black </li></ul><ul><li>and white. </li></ul><ul><li>I will also have a image on the front cover </li></ul><ul><li>which will allow my readers to see what the new </li></ul><ul><li>band in each months magazine looks like. </li></ul><ul><li>Seeing as indie and rock music is becoming </li></ul><ul><li>more popular over the years it seemed logical to </li></ul><ul><li>make sure my music magazine genre was </li></ul><ul><li>Indie/Rock this will give me a good selling </li></ul><ul><li>starting point, as I know that the magazine will </li></ul><ul><li>be brought by some customers as it’s a popular </li></ul><ul><li>genre of music. </li></ul><ul><li>When I was researching ideas for the genre of </li></ul><ul><li>my magazine I found out that 65% of music </li></ul><ul><li>magazine made around the world have the </li></ul><ul><li>Rock/Indie/Heavy mental genre and 10% </li></ul><ul><li>classical music and 25% Rap/R&B/Hip-Hop. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Planning the magazine <ul><li>The genre of music </li></ul><ul><li>magazine I planned was </li></ul><ul><li>Indie/Rock. I chose this </li></ul><ul><li>because it is a popular </li></ul><ul><li>genre within teenagers And </li></ul><ul><li>possible buyers for My </li></ul><ul><li>magazine. </li></ul><ul><li>I planned my magazine by </li></ul><ul><li>making a lot of different mind </li></ul><ul><li>maps of Ideas that could go </li></ul><ul><li>inside it, or on the front </li></ul><ul><li>cover. And choose the best </li></ul><ul><li>ideas that I came up with. </li></ul><ul><li>I made some layout designs </li></ul><ul><li>for my front cover context </li></ul><ul><li>page and double page </li></ul><ul><li>spread to give me different </li></ul><ul><li>ideas of how I could lay out </li></ul><ul><li>my magazine so it look </li></ul><ul><li>interesting to customers here </li></ul><ul><li>Is and example of one for my </li></ul><ul><li>planning layout for a context </li></ul><ul><li>page. </li></ul>One of the hardest parts to creating my own music magazine was getting the right name for my magazine one that people would remember. I made a mind map of different name I could use. I came up with the following names; Rhythm Sound Musical Red hot music My music Rock and read Out of the six names that I came up with when doing my mind map I thought “Rhythm” was most catchy and it represented music as in each song you have a different “Rhythm”.
  6. 6. Pictures included in my magazine <ul><li>For my magazine I had taken all the pictures that are included within it. This allowed me to edit the pictures as I wished </li></ul><ul><li>and to show my progression on how I had edited them within my work. By taking picture of a really band that I knew </li></ul><ul><li>outside of school. It meant that my magazine would look more professional as they new what they should be doing </li></ul><ul><li>within there pictures. For my front cover I used a picture of all three of them. I edited the background so instead of </li></ul><ul><li>having tree and bushes in the background I would have a plan white studio look. I chose this pictures as my front cover </li></ul><ul><li>because they look like a fun, chatty band which people might think is interesting and fun to read about inside. </li></ul><ul><li>On my double page spread I made sure I had a variety of different pictures, I included some studio shot which I </li></ul><ul><li>customised on Photoshop and used some where they were playing to show who plays what in the band and what </li></ul><ul><li>they’d look like live. One the context page I used a series of different pictures, this included a picture of the band and </li></ul><ul><li>a picture of a different band. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Props and costumes in pictures <ul><li>Drums </li></ul><ul><li>Guitars </li></ul><ul><li>Micro-phones </li></ul><ul><li>Speakers </li></ul><ul><li>Amps </li></ul><ul><li>Base guitar </li></ul><ul><li>Casually dressed </li></ul><ul><li>In teen fashion </li></ul><ul><li>Original style </li></ul>Sundown City playing live. (picture included within my magazine).
  8. 8. The changes I’d make <ul><li>There isn't much that I would change about my magazine </li></ul><ul><li>but I would change the way I planned out my </li></ul><ul><li>time. Some part of my magazine have had more thought </li></ul><ul><li>than others. </li></ul><ul><li>I thought that my fount cover could have changed. I think </li></ul><ul><li>I should have place a different picture on the cover to </li></ul><ul><li>balance out the page. I didn’t think the page was balanced </li></ul><ul><li>because it was hard to put all my puffs around the picture </li></ul><ul><li>there wasn’t much space for the information to go. </li></ul><ul><li>I also thought that my context page was a little blank when </li></ul><ul><li>printed and I would change that so it was more full. The last </li></ul><ul><li>thing that I would like to have another go it is taking my own </li></ul><ul><li>pictures again. I didn’t take the correct pictures for my magazine. I </li></ul><ul><li>had to edit them to fit them into the placed marked out on my </li></ul><ul><li>magazine layout. </li></ul>
