Transcript

  • 1. QUESTION 2: HOW DOES YOUR MEDIA PRODUCT REPRESENTPARTICULAR SOCIAL GROUPS?
  • 2. THE SHOT TYPE I HAVE USED IS ‘PORTRAIT’, TAKEN ON A DIGITAL SINGLE LENS REFLEX CAMERA.
  • 3. MY FRONT COVER.
  • 4.  The model on my front cover shows a dominant representation of: Young, mixed-race males. He’s wearing informal apparel...- Hooded sweaters, t shirts, baseball caps, baggy jeans. Jewellery and piercings- connote a desire to look ‘in fashion’.- conform to fashion within society. Smoking connotes that the model has ill regard for his health.- May be using cigarettes as a tool to look more attractive to peers and readers.- It displays a bad attitude- respected by rap/hip hop lovers. Led to believe that he may be unemployed, as he has little respect for the presentation of his attire.- He is not looking at the camera, which connotes a lack of respect and a tone of arrogance. He is not wearing make up to enhance the image, the lighting is natural.
  • 5.  THE IMAGE WAS CAPTURED USING THE ‘PORTRAIT’ FUNCTION ON A DSLR CAMERA. THE LIGHTING IS NATURAL- FLASH REMAINED UNUSED. LOCATION WAS CHOSEN TO REFLECT DOMINANT REPRESENTATION OF YOUNG, MIXED-RACE, RAP/HIP HOP LOVING TEENS. GRAFFITI WAS NOT ADDED- USED THE COINCIDENCE TO MY ADVANTAGE. THE GRAFFITI, MODEL, MODEL’S ATTIRE AND POSE WERE DELIBERATELY ASSEMBLED TO STEREOTYPE THE DOMINANT IDEOLOGY OF TEENS OF HIS DESCRIPTION.
  • 6. MY CONTENTS PAGE.
  • 7. The model on my contents page displays a dominant representation of: Young, mixed-race females. Wearing a modern-styled t shirt, a hooded sweater, and a baseball cap. Her style represents a growing majority of young females in the UK- Caps and hooded sweaters are very much in fashion.- Unisex items of clothing. She is stood amongst trees in a wooded area- which contrasts to the dominant representation of young, female, mixed-race teens.- Usually associated with being located in more urban areas.- This element rebels against the stereotypical teen featured previously. She is not wearing make-up. The lighting is natural.- She is smiling, however not looking at the camera.- Her hand is placed on her hip.- Connotes power, dominance, arrogance and high self-worth.
  • 8.  THE IMAGE WAS CAPTURED USING A DSLR CAMERA AND ‘PORTRAIT’ FUNCTION, IN ORDER TO FOCUS ON THE MODEL, AND INTENTIONALLY BLUR THE BACKGROUND SOMEWHAT. THE LIGHTING IS NATURAL, THUS MEANING THAT THE FLASH REMAINED UNUSED. LOCATION SIMILAR TO THAT USED ON THE FRONT COVER. DELIBERATELY INTERLINKS NATURE WITH URBAN FASHION AND RAP/HIP HOP MUSIC, DEFEATING THE DOMINANT IDEOLOGY OF A STEREOTYPICAL YOUNG, MIXED-RACE TEEN. THE COLOUR SCHEME OF HER ATTIRE (THUS BEING BLACK, RED, GREY AND WHITE) IS AIMED TO CONNOTE POWER AND DOMINANCE. THE COLOURS ARE BOLD, AND FREQUENTLY USED WITHIN THE RAP/HIP HOP GENRE.
  • 9. MY DOUBLE PAGE SPREAD
  • 10. The model on my double-page spread portrays a dominant representation of: Young, male, mixed-race teens. Smoking a cigarette.- Connotes a disregard for his health.- Used as a tool to look attractive. Staring directly into the camera.- Connotes power, arrogance and dominance. The graffiti surrounding him connotes a lack of respect.- Vandalism.- Crime.
  • 11.  THE IMAGE WAS SHOT AT THE SAME LOCATION FEATURED ON THE FRONT COVER OF MY MAGAZINE. IT SHOWS THE SAME MODEL I HAVE USED ON THE FRONT COVER OF MY MAGAZINE. THE TITLE OF THE DOUBLE PAGE SPREAD ‘GETTIN’ THE LOW DOWN FROM...THE BIG DADDY’ FEATURES INFORMAL ELEMENTS WHICH RELATE TO THE MUSIC GENRE: RAP/HIP HOP. THE TITLE IS BLACK, BOLD, AND USES PUNCTUATION SUCH AS APOSTROPHES TO REPLACE LETTERS, IN THIS CASE BEING ‘G.’ AGAIN, A DSLR CAMERA WAS USED. THE FLASH REMAINED UNUSED, AND THE LIGHTING WAS NATURAL. OVERALL, IT DEPICTS A STEREOTYPICAL, DOMINANT REPRESENTATION OF A YOUNG, MIXED-RACE MALE WHO IS INTERESTED IN HIP HOP/RAP MUSIC, AND THE ELEMENTS THAT SURROUND IT, SUCH AS FASHION.
  • 12. THE TITLE OF MY MAGAZINE...  DESCRIBES THE ORIGINAL BEAT-PRODUCING MACHINE CREATED FOR USE BY RAP/HIP HOP ARTISTS.  IT IS BOLD, WHITE AND I HAVE USED AN INFORMAL FONT.  THE FONT IS ROUGHLY CREATED, DISPLAYS FRAYS WHERE THE COLOUR RUNS OUT OF THE LINES.  IT IS DELIBERATELY INTENDED TO RESEMBLE GRAFFITI, WHICH CONNOTES INFORMALITY, AN ELEMENT OF CRIME, WHICH LEADS TO ANARCHIC MOTIVES.  IT IS A STEROTYPICAL, DOMINANT REPRESENTATION OF WHAT PEOPLE (AGED BETWEEN 15 AND 24) WOULD APPRECIATE AND ASSOCIATE WITH HIP HOP/RAP.
  • 13. THE LAYOUT OF MY MAGAZINE COVER, CONTENTS PAGE, ANDDOUBLE PAGE SPREAD IS SIMPLY ASSEMBLED, USING BOLD, BLOCK- COLOUR FONTS AND CAPTIONS/IMAGES THAT DO NOT FEATUREBLEEDS OVER TEXT OR THE SIDE OF THE PAGE, IN ORDER TO ENSURE A CLEAN, CRISP LAYOUT. THE CONTENT OF MY MAGAZINE FEATURES INTERVIEWS, STYLE TIPS AND FASHION, HIP HOP/RAP NEWS, PULL-OUT POSTERS AND CONTROVERSIAL DEBATES REGARDING MUSIC STARS.
