Evaluation; Question 01

  1. 1. Brendon Allan | 30040996EVALUATION; QUESTION 01In what way does your product use, develop or challenge theforms and conventions of real media products?
  2. 2. HOW DOES YOUR PRODUCT USE, DEVELOP OR CHALLENGETHE FORMS/CONVENTIONS OF REAL MEDIA PRODUCTS? I have been asked the question, “In what way does your product use, develop or challenge the forms and Brendon Allan | 30040996 conventions of real media products?”. To answer this question I am going to be comparing the magazine I have created with a well known music magazine of the same genre. I have chosen to compare my magazine with Kerrang! & Q Magazine. The following pages show the comparison between my cover, content and double pages with those of a real music magazine. I have begun with the front cover;
  3. 3. HOW DOES YOUR PRODUCT USE, DEVELOP OR CHALLENGETHE FORMS/CONVENTIONS OF REAL MEDIA PRODUCTS? Kerrang! Cover My Cover Brendon Allan | 30040996 Both magazines contain fluff at the top of the page, this is to entice the reader into buying. I have continued to use fluff and plugs on my magazine around the vocal point of the image. Note that I have done this on the left side of my magazine as when theyre stacked in shops, only the left side is shown.
  4. 4. HOW DOES YOUR PRODUCT USE, DEVELOP OR CHALLENGETHE FORMS/CONVENTIONS OF REAL MEDIA PRODUCTS? Kerrang! Cover My Cover Brendon Allan | 30040996 Next notice the masthead, on my magazine and the Kerrang! magazine the masthead is slightly covered by an image. This shows that the magazine is well known and that a reader would easily notice it if only a segment of the title was shown in a shop or in general.
  5. 5. HOW DOES YOUR PRODUCT USE, DEVELOP OR CHALLENGETHE FORMS/CONVENTIONS OF REAL MEDIA PRODUCTS? Kerrang! Cover My Cover Brendon Allan | 30040996 Now onto the main image, on both magazines it is of a band member. When taking my photos I made sure to use a model that could be identified as a musician. I have used the rule of 3rds to attract the readers attention. The main article of the magazine can also be seen across the front of these photos, it is the biggest thing on the page but it does not distract a readers attention from the title.
  6. 6. HOW DOES YOUR PRODUCT USE, DEVELOP OR CHALLENGETHE FORMS/CONVENTIONS OF REAL MEDIA PRODUCTS? Kerrang! Cover My Cover I have used photos on the Brendon Allan | 30040996 outside of my magazine to show what is included. This has also been done on the Kerrang! Magazine cover. A small point to mention is that a barcode can be seen on both magazines as well as an issue date, I have done this. Finally, the Kerrang! magazine has used a colour scheme of only three colours, I have used a similar limited colour palette.
  7. 7. HOW DOES YOUR PRODUCT USE, DEVELOP OR CHALLENGETHE FORMS/CONVENTIONS OF REAL MEDIA PRODUCTS? Q Content Page My Content Page Brendon Allan | 30040996 Now, onto the content page. On the left is a content page from the music magazine Q and on the right is my content page. Notice that both the real magazine and my magazine have a title, as well as this theyve a main photograph. Again Ive used the rule of 3rds when placing my photographs.
  8. 8. HOW DOES YOUR PRODUCT USE, DEVELOP OR CHALLENGETHE FORMS/CONVENTIONS OF REAL MEDIA PRODUCTS? Q Content Page My Content Page Brendon Allan | 30040996 Now look at the structure of the Q magazine, one side of is dedicated to the content. I have done the same in my magazine. Look also at the fluff on the Q magazine, it shows eye-catching information about articles in the content. I have used this technique to a similar extent by putting interesting content related facts on my page.
  9. 9. HOW DOES YOUR PRODUCT USE, DEVELOP OR CHALLENGETHE FORMS/CONVENTIONS OF REAL MEDIA PRODUCTS?Kerrang! Double Pt. I My Double Pt. I Finally, the double spread. On Brendon Allan | 30040996 the left is the first of a double spread from Kerrang! magazine and on the right is the first of my double spread page. See that the Kerrang! double spread includes elements that span over both pages, note also that the images used on the page correspond with the magazine article. As you can see, I have done the same on the my double spread page.
  10. 10. HOW DOES YOUR PRODUCT USE, DEVELOP OR CHALLENGETHE FORMS/CONVENTIONS OF REAL MEDIA PRODUCTS?Kerrang! Double Pt. II My Double Pt. I Brendon Allan | 30040996 On the left is the second of a double spread from Kerrang! Magazine. Next see that the Kerrang! article uses a drop cap, I have used this in my article also. If you read the Kerrang! article it is written in a "rock" style that will appeal to the target audience. I took this into consideration and have done the same in my magazine article.
  11. 11. HOW DOES YOUR PRODUCT USE, DEVELOP OR CHALLENGETHE FORMS/CONVENTIONS OF REAL MEDIA PRODUCTS?Kerrang! Double Pt. II My Double Pt. I Brendon Allan | 30040996 Notice also that the text on the real magazine has been split into columns, I had this fact pointed out to me at the end of my production stage and changed my magazine to emulate this.
  12. 12. HOW DOES YOUR PRODUCT USE, DEVELOP OR CHALLENGETHE FORMS/CONVENTIONS OF REAL MEDIA PRODUCTS?Kerrang! Double Pt. II My Double Pt. II Brendon Allan | 30040996 On the right is the second of a double spread from my magazine. To finish the comparison see that both the Kerrang! page and my own have page numbers. Also note that the Kerrang! double spread follows a three colour scheme. My double spread also follows a colour scheme, the same scheme as my front cover.
  13. 13. HOW DOES YOUR PRODUCT USE, DEVELOP OR CHALLENGETHE FORMS/CONVENTIONS OF REAL MEDIA PRODUCTS? Now that I have compared my magazine to those of a real magazine distributer I can strongly say that my Brendon Allan | 30040996 magazine does not challenge the forms or conventions of a real media product, it instead uses them. In the production of my magazine I felt it was best to use and follow the conventions of other popular music magazines as it not only gives me a rough plan to follow but helps guarantee the success of my magazine.
