In what ways does your media product use, develop or challenge forms and conventions of real media products?
The title of the magazine I decided to use the title outrage because I thought that it suited the genre of the magazine well and also it look a lot like other existing magazine titles such as Kerrang! magazine.
Mise-en-scene of images Here I have placed my front cover next to an original cover. I used this as inspiration because I thought that the picture was really eye catching. So with my magazine I tried to emulate this by having a main image and using the style of Kerrang! to help structure my magazine.
Costumes and props. In terms of props and costumes I tried to wear clothes that looked simple but would stand out on camera. Also I decided to take my double spread pictures at a skate park because I thought that on other existing magazines the inside pictures where usually a lot more dramatic than the cover image.
People When choosing the people for my magazine I decided to choose people that I thought looked indie/rock and look like people that would be in existing music magazines.
Title, font and style This is the title of my magazine alongside the title Kerrang! I chose this font style because I thought that it worked well and stood out on my cover. I chose to keep it in black because I look at existing magazines and noticed that most of their titles were kept in black.
Written content I decided to use and interview for my double page spread as I thought would be the easiest thing for me to do. I decided to lay my text out like this because I have seen it used before in existing magazines.
Music genre and how your magazine suggests it The genre of my magazine is rock/indie. I think I did this well because I made sure that the people I chose in my magazine looked like this so that it fitted into the genre category well. Also so that my magazine targets the right people I have put a banner along with bands in that I think would attract the people I want to read my magazine.
Layout For the layout of my front cover I used inspiration from Kerrang magazine because I thought the layout of the cover was really striking. Also I thought that that all the pictures interlocked with each other well.
Contents Page For my contents page I used inspiration from Q magazine because I thought that the colours worked well and they were similar to the ones on my front cover. Also I thought that it would appeal to the genre of people I wanted to read my magazine.
