For my ancillary text I was asked to create an magazine advert along with a Cdcover with a insert, and the Cd back cover.As a starting point I had researched many Cd covers in the genre in which wehad established our artist to be., which was POP/Soul. For this I has researchedChris Brown , Justin Bieber and The Michael Jackson. I had analysed a few of theircovers which had given me ideas for mine.
As I had figured out that each of their productshad synergy with the music video of the bonustrack or single that went with that album. I haddecide that I wanted to construct a product inwhich they would interlink. So I thought that Iwould use one of the two locations that we hadshot at to be my theme. The location that I hadchosen was South Bank Skate park. I has chosenthis because there was many images from which Icould use for my products. For example I hadtaken quite a few images of the graffiti at the park.This came in handy when I had chosen for it to bethe bases of my front cover and magazine advert. I had then started to construct my back cover for my Cd. In this I had used an image which I had taken of the evening sky and then added a tint of yellow. I thought that by adding that tint it would make it would make it something unique and different. This had given me the colour scheme for my whole ancillary texts. I added yellow and white text which seemed to have fit perfectly. To the back of my Cd cover as well as the track list I had added the
On the insert of the album there are images which were taken on the day of the video shoot. They are there so that it creates a sense of synergy. They are there to show how they all interlink. It would create synergy as the costume would be the same and so would the lighting. All the ancillary text follow the codes and conventions of a Pop genre. Therefore made it easier to market them.
The products were constructed by keeping the target audience in mind. Which were 12-15 year old teenagers. According to the research carried out throughout the project. Due to the mixed feedback received about the video I had worried about what feedback I would receive about the Digi-pack. However the feedback received about this products was good.
