How does the media product use/develop/challenge forms and conventions of a real media product?<br />The style of the magazine is quite laid back and funny <br />The main colours of the magazine are yellow red and black<br />Direct mode of address<br />Picture of band to be quite humorous to attract target audience/represent them <br />The title <br />Buzz words attract the audience to a certain part of the page part of the page<br />The black and red represent the rock genre of the magazine <br />I have used the typical banner seen at the bottom of magazines with bands featured in the magazine and to add effect I have placed images in-between then spaces<br />
The contents primary optical area<br />The text in the contents is all in line with the same coloured text <br />With the picture pointing downwards it directs the eyes towards the main feature of the magazine<br />It’s conventional to have the columns in the contents<br />This background for the text looks scratched with the eraser tool to keep the theme of the magazine<br />
Ideal audience <br />The target audience is:<br />16-19 year old <br />They would like to hang round Manchester in urbis and some can be stereo typed as Goths/Emo’s and Mosher's <br />They Would like mainly rock music, metal and “screamo” music. <br />They would like to wear dark, usually black or individual looking cloths, with spikes on and things like that on. and some of the audience would wear eye-liner, and style their hair and sometimes dyes it. <br />Common words they would say include: “awesome” ,“sweet” and “epic”<br />They would probably like to go into town with their friends and go to concerts like, Rob zombie, Death Stars, mindless self indulgence, and underground bands like terminal hospitality. <br /> They like these bands because they are quite different, and they like their individuality and like to look individual themselves so would use them as inspiration for their style and way of life.<br />
The audience can be either gender<br />Kerrang seems to be the best style of magazine, <br />It seems like muse is the most preferred type of music <br />Most preferred music seems to be metal<br />
How did you attract/address your audience ?<br />This image is quite humorous because it is quite random with the funny looking creature, and so this will appeal to the audience <br />Bands like this attract the audience because the audience will appeal to these bands <br />To attract the audience I used people with long hair to look like my audience and appeal to them in that way.<br />Language that my target audience would use so this appeals to them <br />
This small picture in the corner is quite humorous with its funny facial expression appealing to the audience. <br />These pictures of the band members will appeal to the target audience because of there expressions and physicality's.<br />With metal bands like Dethklok which keeps the metal theme but also appeals to the audience as they see bands which appeal to their interests in bands.<br />n<br />
The background image appeals to the audience because it is humorous and looks like it is graphite which appeals to my target age range as part of my audience would be interested in graphite <br />Images like these are quite cocky images with poses<br />
