2. How effective is the combination of yourmain product and ancillary texts? I think the combination of mymain product and ancillary textwas effective as I made sure thatsome of the outfits were the samein our music video and ourdigipak. I kept some of the outfitsthe same outfit as I wanted theaudience to realise the song bythe colour, she was wearing. Themain colour in our video was pink.We kept this consistent as thealbum cover was pink, advert waspink, Nicki Minaj was wearing pinkand the some parts of the videowere pink too. Pink also reflectsNicki Minaj as pink is seen to bevery feminine. This is effective asthe colour pink is bright andstands out. Pink was also seen onthe advert cover as well.
Our main artist was also inevery image on the digipakto emphasise that thealbum is about her and byher. I used different imagesfrom different angles for thevarious sides of the digipak.Having different angles forvarious sides of the digipaka bit more exciting andmakes the fan have moreimages of their artist.I used mid shots in thedigipak to show that theartist is centre of attention.This relates to our musicvideo which shows mid-shots of our artist/s.Full Digipak
Some of the poses on thedigipak are similar to someof the movements in thevideo. We wanted to keepsome of the poses anddance movements similar aswe thought this make theaudience identify particularmoves which will make theaudience feel more involvedin the album and song. The word ‘CANDY’ and thecolour pink on our digipakreinforces the idea of havingfun and being colourful inour music video.
