Evalutaion question 1

  1. 1. IN WHAT WAYS DOES YOUR MEDIA PRODUCT USE, DEVELOP OR CHALLENGE THE FORMS AND CONVENTIONS OF REAL MEDIA PRODUCTS? By Georgina Dovaston
  2. 2. USES • • How does my magazine use the forms and conventions? What has my magazine done that real magazines do? • Refer to the forms and conventions.
  3. 3. FRONT COVER I have used the forms and conventions in my magazine front cover because I have done it so the artist on the front cover is looking at the camera so it looks like they are looking directly at you so when you go to buy it in a shop you will just see the artist on the front cover looking at you tying t get you to buy the magazine, the mast head is also the biggest graphic on the page so it is clear to read and it is big and bold so you don’t have to search the front cover for the name of the magazine. Also on both of the magazines the main artist on the front of the magazine takes up most of the page so you can also see who the magazine is about, you will also be able to see what sort of artist they are if you have never head of the name of the artist you can normally see what sort of artist they are by the way they dress and the way the look. On my magazine I have got the mast head at the top of my page going from the left of the page to right, it is like this so when you go into a shop to buy it all you will see is the mast head of the magazine so you know which magazine your looking at. Also the headline of the magazine is big so you can see what the main feature in the magazine is before you buy the magazine so you know if it is going to be a magazine that you will like and actually want to read. The name in the head line is also normally the artist on the front cover so you know what the artist looks like if you haven’t heard of the name before. The sub headline is slightly smaller underneath the main head line because when you pick the magazine you will see which artist its about but then when you read the sub headline you will see why it is about that artist so you know what sort of article it is going to be and what it is going to be about, quite often the sub head line is a quote from the article that features the artist on the front of the magazine. The cover lines on both magazines tell you a little more of what is inside the magazine so you know what else is in the magazine apart from the headline. Sometimes the cover lines are quotes from inside the magazine so you know what things are said in the magazine. Most magazines have also got a date line on the front cover which shows the website and the barcode and the issue number.
  4. 4. FRONT COVER Artist looking at camera Mast head at the top left hand side of the page Dateline Sub headline Headline
  5. 5. CONTENTS PAGE I have used the forms and conventions in my music magazine contents page because all the articles have got a page number by them so you know which page they are on so you don’t have to flick through the magazine trying to find one article. My contents page and the one I’m comparing it too have both got more than 1 picture/photograph because on most magazines they have got more than 1 photograph to show different artists that are in the magazine. The title is always at the top of the page either the top left hand side, the top middle or the top right hand side so when you are flicking through the magazine you will see at the top of the page that it is the contents page so you don’t have to look at every page to find the magazine you will see it straight away because it will be at the top of the page. The colour scheme and the house style will follow on from the front cover so the colours and the fonts will follow on from the front cover so it matches. On a contents page it has also got columns on it so all the writing is neat and in columns. It is also broken down into categories so if you are looking for a certain thing in the magazine you will be able to look under the category it would be in to find the page that the feature/article would be on that you are looking for. Most magazines including mine have got a bit of writing underneath the title of the article saying what it is about and also what it is in so you know whether you will like the article or not so you know whether to read it or not.
