  • Analysing Media http://tinyurl.com/7ad7aaj
  • ANALYSING MEDIA Screens & visual communication permeate our lives. These forms of visual communication usually strike a chord for the receiving audience. This can be done intuitively or be highly calculated. When constructing or deconstructing media, consider the following: 1. Initial Reaction & Description What do you see? What is your first impression? What is happening in the work? What is the story and what significance does it have? 2. Analysis, Interpretation & Evaluation What is the purpose? Is there an intended audience for the work? What is the general ambience of the work? What mood does it create? How does it do this?What signs and symbols do we find? What role do they play in the mediums’ impact? What is the ideology of the piece (what is the idea behind it)? What is the agenda of the producer? If figures are included, what can be said about their appearance, relations or emotions? Is the background significant? Are any themes evident (jealousy, ambition, passion etc.)? How is language used? Does it provide information or generate emotional response? Were any techniques such as humour, alliteration or innuendo used? What typefaces were used and what do they convey? What sociological, political, economic or cultural attitudes are indirectly reflected in the work (sexism, alienation, conformism etc.)?
