Comparison between my preliminary task and my final

  1. 1. Comparison between my preliminary task and My final product By Robert Munden
  2. 2. Front Cover-Conventions Within the time I spent creating my preliminary task and final magazine I have gained lots of skills and create d a conventional magazine cover. My use of images is a lot better as I’ve included an image that’s conventional of the genre, compared to my preliminary task where the images use an unconventional shot type and the way the image was taken. The preliminary task covers very few conventions having a small masthead, in a strange font, The colours do not go well with the image, But the conventions are mostly missing, But I’ve gained better understanding and included most conventions needed in a rock magazine.
  3. 3. Front cover- Photography and Mise-en-scene My use of photography has improved as the image on the preliminary task is very unconventional and doesn’t make use a very good shot type or angle, These problems have been changed very dramatically in my finished front cover, which features good use of shot types and angles, Also my use of Mise-en-scene has improved, as there's no indication of the setting in my preliminary task, Whereas my use of Mise-enscene has improved as the setting, props and costumes used are a lot better in my final production.
  4. 4. Front Cover-Image Editing My image editing has seen improvements since creating my preliminary task as I didn’t edit a single bit of my preliminary task, Whereas the majority of my front cover is edited, and in my finished product I edited the brightness and contrast of the image, this was to make it more conventional
  5. 5. Front Cover- Layout I’ve also not included a good layout in my preliminary task, yet now I’ve included a more conventional layout, using the route of the eye better, also is more conventional because it actually appeals to the target audience that’s it’s aiming at.
  6. 6. Front Cover- Fonts The fonts I used in my preliminary task were not conventional at all as they were all ‘Word Art’ not good for a magazine, this did not appeal to the target audience of the parents. Also the use of the same font throughout the whole of my preliminary task was not conventional or appealing at all. Which has been improved on my finished product where I use multiple conventional fonts.
  7. 7. Front Cover- Colours The colours used on my preliminary task are very basic and don’t go greatly with the cover, as certain parts are hard to read. Also the colours are not very conventional of the genre so therefore doesn’t help appeal to the audience. This has been improved as my knowledge of conventional colours has improved, I also know colour connotations and what they convey, So therefore my final magazine includes appealing colours with good connotations and that relate to the genre.
  8. 8. Front Cover- Mode of address The mode of address on my preliminary task is very simple and doesn’t make the magazine stand out or even give an understanding to the target audience, But since then I have improved my knowledge and because of this now my magazine cover conveys a conventional mode of address, with such connotations such as aggression, violence and danger, which this tone sets the conventional rock genre, and therefore this will appeal to my target audience.
  9. 9. Contents PageConventions My preliminary task included minimal conventions of magazines in general and magazine of that sort, Since creating this it helped me gain knowledge of conventions and why they are so important to make a magazine a lot better. My final contents page now includes many conventions in areas including layout, images, fonts and colours that connote conventions of the genre and it includes a conventional layout involving the route of the eye.
  10. 10. Contents PagePhotography and Miseen-scene My use of photography and mise-enscene is hard to compare with my preliminary task as I didn’t take photos I just did the layout, But I’ve learnt more on where the images are best of going, And I could draft out other parts of the images where I place d them and how I could place other things around the images..
  11. 11. Contents PageLayout The contents page has improved dramatically in the form of layout, as my preliminary task featured a very unconventional layout ands h ad just random things placed everywhere with no layout, this means that it isn’t appealing to the target audience, This has improved in my final contents page as its laid out better and has the cover lines in conventional areas and other features in correct places making it better and appealing to the target audience.
  12. 12. Contents Page- Fonts and Colours For my preliminary task I hadn’t fully decided on fonts or colours, but since creating it my knowledge has improved and I have not created a contents page with conventional use of fonts and colours.
  13. 13. Contents Page-Mode of Address The mode of address on my preliminary task contents page is very simple, mainly because it’s only a draft, but this has been improved on my final magazine, as it’s ,more aggressive and intimidating mode of address, which is conventional of the genre and will therefore appeal to the target audience
