Q7- ‘Looking back at your preliminary task, what do you feel you have learnt in the progression from it to the full product?’

  1. 1. Looking back at your preliminary task, what do you feel you have learnt in the progression from it to the full product? Published 31/01/14 by Sophie Arthur and conventions when making my product which I was able to follow. This means that my product had a more professional looking layout to my preliminary task. As my preliminary task allowed me to have an insight of how important it was to have a detailed plan of my product before producing the magazine, and to use my time effectively. This means that when it came to making my music magazine, “I was more aware I was more aware from the from the beginning beginning that I needed to have that I needed to have a detailed plan of how I was going to spend each time period a detailed plan,” of producing my magazine. As I was more aware of the tools Photoshop allowed me to use before planning this product, my plans were more realistic and Lasso tool and text tool practise therefore easier to stick to when producing exercises completed in lessons my product. My skills with creating the magazine also improved as I became more comfortable with magazine terminology using wordclouds, My skills with creating a magazine have improved as my skills with software such as Photoshop have improved too. My skills have developed in using certain tools for example text tool, lasso tool etc. which means that I was able to use these tools more effectively when making my actual product which therefore made my product look more professional. The paper plans for my preliminary task compared to the ones for my final product. For example, when planning my preliminary task I planned on using a font that didn’t properly exist, and therefore had to spend a lot of time on only the masthead. Wordcloud of magazine terminilogy created on ‘Jason Davies Word Cloud’ website. and by looking at professional magazines with a similar audience (e.g. NME and MOJO) FC of NME magazine meaning that I was more aware of popular and professional magazine layouts, forms My preliminary task FC compared to my final product FC
  2. 2. When it came to making my product, I was more aware of what fonts were available to use and how long I should be spending on the masthead in comparison to the rest of the magazine. My skills with the software (for example Photoshop, InDesign) have developed in many different ways since the production of my preliminary task. My photography composition has improved as I have learnt how to more effectively place pictures and have chosen a more specific place for each graphic feature to go, rather than just placing them in the middle. My preliminary task contents page compared to my final product contents page. Central images used for my preliminary task and final product. The rest of my page layout and design has improved as my skills have developed as I have been more aware of ways to help my product look more professional e.g. I learnt how to orientate my text (using the text tool) towards the right and learned how to place parts images over other features (e.g. text) using the magnetic lasso tool. My use of fonts has also improved as I have better planned my product to ensure that the fonts used are consistent throughout the product, with a specific font for a certain feature. I have also been able to find and use fonts better suited to the genre of my magazine as my skill of finding fonts online and being able to transfer them onto Photoshop has also improved. I have selected a more appropriate mise-enscene for the images used in my product as rather than taking the photo anywhere I ensured that the settings, props, costumes of the model and anything else important were selected effectively to suit the magazine genre. My research and planning that was undertaken after creating the preliminary task helped me to ensure that the content I would include in my final product would be relevant and suit the genre of the magazine well. This contrasts to my preliminary task as I has not seen a school magazine before and did not look at the contents pages of any as research, I just assumed what content would be relevant.
