Time Out Magazine Weekly magazine The original magazine, with listings for London, was first published in 1968.Time Out is a magazine that help the LGBT Community with eventsand movements and this is one of the reason we chose toadvertise our documentary in this magazine. Therefore we wereresearching and we found that they have so many events duringthis month because is the LGBT history month: LGBT HistoryMonth is a month-long annual observance of lesbian, gay, bisexualand transgender history, and the history of the gay rights andrelated civil rights movements. It is observed during October in theUnited States, to include National Coming Out Day on October11.In the United Kingdom, it is observed during February.

The picture has its meaning as the handheld camera emphasises that it is about a documentary.The layout and the colourscheme of this double pagespread is very inspiring as thecolour scheme is very effectiveand grabs the attention of itstarget audience.
Inspirational newspaper advert This is a great inspirational advert because it’s simple and very attention catching. The picture really emphasises the connotations of the documentary’s topic, therefore it was very effective.This advert also is very simple but effective, as the image really represents the documentary’stopic. The layout is similar to what we want to do, very simple and effective.
Ideas for the Ancillaries We had some ideas and this are some pictures we took in order to explore the ideas we had. Some of them didn’t work very well. However it was a great experience!
Exploring ideasWhen we choose the picture we were going to use, we tried to experiment some effects with the picture inorder to manipulate and send a different massage. However none of the effects send the message we wanted,so we decided to keep the original image so we don’t confuse the audience.
Inspirational Advert: This is a Dove advert .After looking at this advert we decided to take on the idea, and try to incorporate with our documentary topic.
Teachers Feedback WWW EBI Concept is okay Size is far too big Options boxes gets people Picture is too provocative, thinking doesn’t communicate meaning very well Good attempt of size The logo shouldn’t have a relationship/application white background around it Good composition + The ‘’rainbow’’ isnt the framing title, you need a more captivating sentence
Self Assessment TARGETS Use the right Channel 4 font Fix logo’s background Add colourful designs so that the image stands out
Layout Plan for the Double page spread Before starting the double page spread we tried to plan first what we wanted to put in. We followed all the steps and elements :• Title• Subtitle• By-line• Photos (taken by yourself) “pulled• Captions quote”• 2 columns of text• Pull quote• Block of text for additional information• Folio (page number/style) 1 2
Inspirational Double page spread:This double page spread has inspired us in what the picture represents. It represents stereotypes and as ourdocumentary is about the media’s portrayal of the LGBT community, we thought that it would be successful. Thetext format is not very fancy, but its simple and formal.
