FORMS AND CONVENTIONS How does your media product use, develop or challenge forms and conventions of real media products?
This is the front cover of the digi-pak, the band arecentral and then the background is a mixture of black and white and colour. The black and white tree in the background, connotes that the presence of the band is saving their surroundings, as the bench and grass they are sitting on are in colour, and the colour gradually disappears.The bands costumes, are all conventional of an indie,band, as they are all casual but also smartly dressed The lead singer is in the centre of the image, which is conventional The Title life saver is the same colour as the band member on the rights T-shirt, so there is a direct link to the band and the song
This is the second page, which has a sheet of music in the background, with a heart beat monitor over the top. This sticks with the life theme, throughout thedigi-pak. The heartbeat monitor lines, aren’t all the same, so it suggests that there is always a change in the stability of it, e.g. either getting better of worse.
This is one of the centre pages, where one of the CD’s will go, it is a heart, with a amp lead wrapped around, and squeezing it, this suggests that the music is killing life, which is controversial as the main song title is “Life Saver”. The heart is hand drawn which makes it look and feel quite alternative, and arty, which is conventional of the genre of music.
This is the 4th page, where the second CD will go, it shows the lead singer and the girl from the video for “Life Saver” so that the digi-pak is linked to the videos and the music. We have put broken glass over the top, this links to the video, as there where cracks shown in the relationship in the music video, this therefore translates through to the digi- pak, this is conventional to have links between products.
This is the 5th page, and it shows, Ed the lead singer, and main character in the video,out of focus in the background. In the foreground and in focus there is a plectrum withblood dripping from it, this suggest that it has been pulled from someones body, to save their life.
Along each side of thepage, there is a heart beat monitor, this is to link to the song “Life Saver”. The band are in colour, but everything else is in black and white, this connotes The song titles are laid out in that the band are living and everything a conventional style with one else is dyeing around them, they can save bellow the other objects through the music.
This is the Magazine The album is featured on the advert for the album advert, this is conventional and we have decided to stick with this as it is the easiest and most effective way of presenting the The advert uses to bold band. Although the albumcolours for the background so image, is featured around the that it stands out. These edge so that it looks faded, colours are split with heart which sticks with the life v deathbeat monitor readings, so that theme. there is still that life theme throughout all the products. We have used the same colour for the “OUT NOW” text as the Bands name on the Digi-pak to link the digi- pak to the advert. This is conventional and therefore we have followed it.It is conventional for small bands to advertise onsocial networking sites this is why we have used to Facebook logo.
