  6. 6.           Costs £6.00 per issue Church of London publish this magazine (possibly a small publishing group). Published bi-monthly (every 2 months) British Independent Movie Magazine – Features writing, illustration and photography. Artistic film magazine, features one main movie which is on the front cover.

  7. 7.          Published by Future (horizontal integration – cornering the market by having a specialist and mass marketed magazine. Specialist interest/target audience Costs £4.50 per Issue – Sold in newsagents. Published monthly Target audience – non age, non gender specific – For people interested in that type of movie. Special effects associated with sci-fi style films. Non conventional style font, gradient of colour – up to date, contemporary, futuristic. £20 per 6 month digitally Blue hue/neon greens/whites – Dramatic front cover image, follow typical conventions.
  8. 8.  I found out that music magazines mostly carry a higher price than conventional magazines; most are published monthly except Little White Lies. It is possible to view Little White Lies issues on the internet for free instead of buying the issue for £6.00. I didn’t think that there were only six film magazines, however I feel this number is about right because conventional magazines are a dying breed, and are in decline as a result of people viewing magazines on line and purchasing magazines as apps. Blogs are also providing competition as people are able to produce their own reviews and articles to a high standard which people can view for free on the internet. Also as a result of the current economic climate less people are purchasing magazines (especially film and specialist interest magazines which are more expensive).
