Transcript

  • 1. In what way dose your media productsuse, develop or challenge forms andconventions of real media products For the masthead of my magazine I looked at the styling of the kerrang masthead, this gives the impression of being broken. I found a font that looked to be warn and old, I think that my masthead conforms with the industry. One of the main differences between my magazine and the industry’s in the size of the masthead, my mast head covers a lot of the page, I think that this makes it more prominent and would stand out more on a shelf.
  • 2.  Kerrang used buttons on there contents page that did not follow through on the rest on the pages, I used this in my magazine to add numbers to pictures. I also split the contents page into different sections under different headings, this is also commonly used in music magazines
  • 3.  I went ageist the conventions of magazines and have the text left align and not justified, this gives the magazine a scruffy look and fits in with the style of music. I made the text box at the bottom of the page slightly uneven, this was also used in a kerrang article and this also suits the style of music.
  • 4. How dose you particular mediaproduct represent social group’s The colours used are very dark throughout the maroon colour and the blue/purple give this a teenage feel, also these colours are very common on album covers, for example “conceder this” by tonight alive uses a similar red and the black with white text have a heavy link to the double page spread.
  • 5.  The font has a gothic feel to it, punk and emo music is heavily related to alternative rock, and gothic text is stereotypically used in these genres of music.
  • 6. What kind of institution mightdistribute your media product Bauer Media Group would be a company that could distribute my magazine because they are publishers for “Kerrang” and “Q”. These magazines are appealing to a similar audience to mine, the company would have experience promoting this style of magazine.
  • 7. Who would be the audience foryour media product My target audience would be… Both genders between the ages of 15 and 21. There taste in music would range around these genres…  alternative rock  pop punk  Emo  post-hardcore  electronic rock
  • 8.  The main other magazine that the audience would also be reading would be Kerrang as it covers a similar range of bands.
  • 9. How did you attract/addressyour audience To attract an audience I used big bands, such as MCR, Fall Out Boy and Paramore in the left third with the top band being in “the sweet spot”. I also used pictures of the band underneath the headings so that the band would be more appealing to and audience. I left the page un cluttered by only using three cover lines, I think this gave it a cleaner feel and would be more attractive to an audience.
  • 10. What have you learnt abouttechnologys from the processof constructing this product Over this topic I have learnt how to use a dslr cameras. When fist using this camera I had problems focusing it, as I did not realise there was another part to turn on the front of the camera.
  • 11.  I also used presi, I found this very simple to use and got to grips with the program quite easy. One of the main problems that I found with Presi was adding it to wix, as I could not find the right options to add it to a page.
  • 12. Look back at you media selfbefore the project I think that I have learnt a lot of valuable skills over this topic. One of the main skills I have gained is the presentational skills for a magazine and how to lay out pages.
