As shown below the first code and convention that we have followed within makingour was poisoning of our interviewee’s as show ‘In the teeth of Jaws’ and ‘Keep meposted’ both interviewee’s are on the left hand side a third down the frame. Wehave used both close ups and/or medium close ups.However where we have challged the conventions is within the graphics. As show ‘Inthe teeth of jaws’ they have placed their name and occupation within a long titlebox across the frame. They have also used a different colour font and font style. Wehave used white San serif font. By doing this the graphics are easy to read and clearon the screen.
We have also used archive footage within our documentary just like ‘In the teethof jaws’ have. By doing it firstly breaks up a section if there is to much narrative.And secondly if their is a jump cut with in the documentary then by placingachieve footage their it helps the documentary to flow better therefore beingeasier and more enjoyable to watch.
Another way that we have formed to the codes and conventions is in the way we haddo then opening titles. Again we have used graphics by going this the title clearlystands out and so is very clear for the viewer.Why’s making our documentary we tried hard to sick to the forms and conventions ofa documentary and i feel that we meet a lot of what was needed to make a goodproduct.
I feel that we followed many codes and conventions when making our radioadvert. Firstly we used the same voice over as what was in our documentary. Bydoing this it then links our two products together. We used extracts fromdocumentary in advert therefore showing the viewer what is to come.Voiceover is also intercut.Secondly we had dated the scheduling at the end of our advert. Our adv last 30-40 seconds long which is the normal running time. The narrator we have usedwithin both our radio and documentary was standard English and his pitch andtone changed though out both.The music that we used was the same in both the radio and documentary wemade sure that the music fitted the style of the documentary therefore wechose the song ‘Power’. Music bed relates to our topic and does not overshadow the voice over.The radio advert and the print advert same theme and slogan therefore linkingthem together.
We have used one main image which is eye-catching and strong, the image also creates anarrative. The image shows an insight into what the documentary is about. Minimal amount ofwords have been used within the poster to avoid boredom. The colour from title links in withlogo or part of image. By doing this it makes the advert clear and better to understand. Title hasblock behind it to stand out and spans halfway across the image. The channel 4 logo is on theright hand side, so it doesnt get in the way of the main image on the advert. The slogan wehave chosen is short and catchy.
