Question 2:

  1. 1. Question 2:<br />How does your media product represent particular social groups?<br />
  2. 2. My Target Audience<br />My target audience were ‘Indie kids’, male and female and aged between 15-19.<br />Here are a few defininations of Indie kids that I have found:<br />Indie kids are witty, intelligent kids that wear vintage clothing and like to differ from the norm.<br />Indie-kid is slang for a person who is keen on 'Indie' music and wears it's fashions.<br />Indie is short for independent rock. In terms of music it would be independent of major labels/mainstream stuff<br />
  3. 3. A Typical Indie Boy<br />Indie Boys tend to be skinny, shy, with messy hair and a fringe. The hair must not be confused with emo hair. Indie footwear is often converses or plimsolls. <br />
  4. 4. A Typical Indie Girl<br />Indie girls wear any sort of jeans, comfy and casual t-shirts and the same footwear as the boys. <br />
  5. 5. Outfits<br />These are the outfit I made for my blog of what a indie girl would wear. However as mentioned in my blog polyvore don’t do male clothing.<br />
  6. 6. My Front Cover<br />As the front cover is the first part that my audience will see, I wanted my audience to instantly connect and relate to my model. To attract indie members I dressed my model in the clothes that they are familiar with. This being a check shirt buttoned to the top with a beanie hat as well as an artist who is of my target audiences age. As indie kids are all about the music I also got my model to wear headphones. The facial expression was the main part of my front cover, with the model showing confidence and acting as an individual, I thought that my audience would appreciate this more. <br />
  7. 7. My Contents Page<br />My contents page doesn’t particularly represent my chosen social group. However there are a few points to which the indie kids could relate to. <br />The first being the feature band ‘You Me At Six’ as they are well known and famous I would hope that my target audience know them or at least recognise the band member who is the photograph. <br />The second is the ‘Win Gig Tickets’ this should instantly grab their attention because indie kids love going to music festivals.<br />
  8. 8. My Double Page Spread<br />Although there is no mise-en-scene that my social group can relate to, the main focus again, just like my front cover is my model and the use of clothing. Again he is wearing a beanie hat as well as being in a different check shirt and you can see that he wear jeans. The way he is posed shows that he is sensitive<br />but also open and vulnerable at the same time, this reflects his age which my target audience can relate too. I also included an image of a girl although she doesn’t look indie, she is half hiding behind her coat this shows that she is slightly shy. <br />
  9. 9. Overall<br />Overall my product does not offer challenge but supports dominant ideas about my chosen social group, indie. I haven’t done anything different to other representations from within my magazine’s genre. However I think I could have improved my media product to represent my chosen social group by using mise-en-scene that communicates to indie kids. <br />
