How Does Your Media Product Represent Particular Social Groups….?<br />Question II<br />
Stereotypical Representation…<br />My ‘House’ music magazine represents a very stereotypical view of contemporary teenage society. Take the cover for instance, the main image clearly indicates the nature of the magazine and even features a shot of a drunken teen the morning after a hectic night out…..<br />The theme is also slightly controversial because although it does strongly portray the wrecky scene that teenagers love to engage themselves in, its also tries to get across that the scene has slightly more sophistication than outsiders assume…..<br />
Common Ideology of Contemporary‘Teens’…<br />Pretty Boi’s<br />
Although representing a particular social group my magazine also represents a more wide scale audience as in the 16-40 party fanatics of society. It is sometimes not thought about, the idea of older more mature people being linked with this scene but there are a large number of more mature characters around than assumed.<br />Wider Representation …..<br />
My media product manages to reach its target audience through a number of aspects that are included….<br /><ul><li>For example take the cover, the main image used stages a scene with my model collapsed after what appears to be a heavy night out. It emphasises the intensity of the night as daylight hasn’t stirred him and also he's asleep in the snow. This images was particularly used to relate to my audience on their level with an image they could truly understand. The image regardless of the age of the model can relate to the whole age bracket of my target audience as everyone at some point in their life is likely to have experienced an incident quite similar.
Also on a more basic level the content itself would appeal largely to my particular target audience. So with the combination of a catching main image and quality content I feel my magazine will meet its customers needs.</li></ul>How …..?<br />
