Media Production Evaluation By Alex Groome
In what way does your media product use, develop orchallenge forms and conventions of real media products. Front Page: To the left is the image of my completed magazine. My title uses a red and black colour scheme to make sure it attracts the readers and will stand out from the rest of the market. The reason I did this was because the red lettering on the black background makes sure that if you were walking by it would stand out to you. I also used the black box at the bottom of the front cover to make sure that the sentence that is there promoting the sale of the magazine. When I put into my cover lines I had to think about what colour to make them to make sure that they stand out from the background image that I have used. So I then used the yellow/gold colour because this stood out from the background.
In what way does your media product use, develop orchallenge forms and conventions of real media products. Contents Page: I have used several images on my contents page. The first of which is the person that I am using as the main selling feature for the magazine which is the bottom left picture on the page. The second is a picture of the famous Handel which is being compared to the main sell. The third picture I have included is the one that is used for the editors note. This is used because it gives that reader a chance to see what the editor really thinks about its magazine.
In what way does your media product use, develop orchallenge forms and conventions of real media products. Double Page Spread: To the left of this is the image of my completed double page. I have used the title on the individual pages. The reason I did this was because if the page was torn out people would know there it has come from. I also used the split columns on the right hand page to make sure that people realize that it is an article from a magazine. This also makes it look more professional. I also put a article header so that people that cant remember what the title of this double is from the contents page will know what the title is.
Audience FeedbackFor my feedback I put together a few questions that I could print out and ask people tofill in. As well as printing out the questionnaires I printed out copies of my magazinesfront cover, contents page and the double page spread so people could answer thequestion correctly. I then asked six people to fill out the questions so that I could gainsome feedback from my target audience. The questions are as of below: Do you think that this front cover is typical of this genre? Is the font on the content page conventional? Do you think the front cover layout is conventional? Can you read the text on the contents page? Do you think the fonts on the front cover used appropriate to this genre? Is the picture used on the double page spread suitable for the genre? Do you like the layout of my contents page? Can you read the text easily on the double page spread? Is the font that I have used on my double page spread conventional? Do you like the layout of my double page?

How did you attract/address your audience?My target audience is 16 to 25 year olds and also the audience are going to be of themiddle class and down in the social grading.My magazine attracts the target audience because of the way I have laid the certainsections out in my magazine with the eye catching colours that have been used andthen the bold outstanding titles. I believe that this is the sort of thing that my audiencewill be looking for and will enjoy seeing it in my magazine.My magazine uses a pleasuring, formal tone that address the target audience whichcould then attract a larger audience base. Most magazines in this genre of music use avery formal tone which I am hoping to use to help my magazine to become moreattracting to the target audience.Crescendo includes the information that my target audience would be interested in andwith this inside it would be then make the target audience more likely to buy themagazine.
How does your media product represent particular social groups?My magazine hopes to represent people that want to read a interesting, formal andexciting style of magazine and also people that enjoy the good old classical music thatmost people have forgotten about. The music in this magazine is from the classicalgenre so the social group that will be reading my music magazine will be the highermiddle class downwards. The purpose of my magazine is to give information about theclassical genre to my target audience of 16 to 21 year olds that may not know muchabout the younger musicians that are trying to break through into the industry.
What kind of media institution might distribute your media product and why?I believe that my magazine would be have to be published with a fairly popular mediainstitution that does actually produce magazines. If my magazine was going to bepublished I would like it to be a company like the BBC magazine section because itwould ensure that it would be seen as a magazine that has very high standards and thisis because the BBC magazines have a very good reputation for the various magazinesthat it publishes.BBC publishes magazines such as Radio Times, BBC Music and Focus magazine.Although BBC magazines is an excellent institution to produce my magazine but italready produces a couple of highly read music magazines and thinking about it theywould most probably not want to produce another music magazine.BBC has been around since ???? and its audience has grown since then and now hasmany different magazines, TV channels and webpages. By doing this it means that thatit now has a target audience of all ages and also now appeals to all activities andinterests.
Who would be the audience for your media productAs described earlier my target audience for my magazine ispeople of the middle class around the age of late teens, earlytwenties. By targeting at this age group it means that they aremore mature and will understand what they are reading in themagazine. I believe that this is achieved because of the writingstyle that I have used.
What have you leant about technologies from the process of constructing this product?Overall in this task I have learn more skills than I first thought that I might do. My skillshave developed rather quickly because I have need them to continue doing mymagazine. The two skills I am most impressed with is that I can now use a MacBookrather well and also how to use Photoshop to edit my pictures.With the MacBook I have just learnt how to use it to its full potential. To begin with I justlearn how to use the basic features and then started to use the most complex featuresthat the computer can do. By doing this it means that I can now use a Mac in later lifefrom what I have learn during this process.In Photoshop I have learnt how to use all of the different types of tools that I will need toimprove my images so that they look more professional. I used these techniques on myall of images that I have used in my music magazine.
Looking back at your preliminary task, what do you feel you have learnt in the progression from it to the full product?I think that it is rather obvious that I have leant more skills since my preliminary and haveused them in my music magazine. When I compare both of the magazines I can see theimprovements from my School magazine to my Music magazine because on my Schoolmagazine the colour scheme is green and white and all of the text is the same fontwhereas the Music magazine has a colour scheme of red, black and yellow and severaldifferent fonts. I myself believe that these improvements are in fact because I have usedthe skills that I have learned in Photoshop this year. from this to this
