HOW EFFECTIVE IS THE COMBINATIONOF YOUR MAIN PRODUCT ANDANCILLARY TEXTS?
It was important for me to create three products which looked consistent so my target audience would be able to recognise that they linked together and were all about the same thing. This would in turn help members of my target audience remember my products and the documentary they are about. Thus increasing the viewing figures for the documentary.
COLOUR SCHEME Consistent throughout products Pantone colour 7455C This colour scheme helped connotate the of social networking. The bright colours used will help the audience link the products together visually.
FONTS Fonts Arial and OCR Std A used throughout products Print products used same typography (italics and bold) formatting. This again helps link the products together visually.
CONTENT Same information provided about documentary throughout products. For example, air time and date of the documentary. The content and facts about social networking are consistent throughout the three products. This helps make sure that the reader doesnt get mislead or confused by the different products providing different information.
PURPOSE The purpose of the two print ancillary tasks was to help capture the readers interest in my documentary and share the basic information about the documentary (air date and time, topic etc. ) They would therefore act as inter-textual products to provide deeper understanding into the documentary. The print tasks help set the mood of the documentary as modern, which is shown through the colour scheme, so the readers know what to expect when they watch the documentary.
CONCLUSION The consistency within the texts helps the audience become aware of the topic of social networking and makes the products look like they are about the same thing. The colour scheme has especially helped me achieve this as this is the feature which stands out the most throughout my texts. Members of my target audience would therefore be able to link these products together because of the FaceBook blue used. Therefore making them easily recognisable. I therefore think that the combination of the three products is very effective and that the three texts link well in a inter-textual sense.
