IN WHAT WAYS DOES YOUR MEDIA PRODUCT USE , DEVELOP OR CHALLENGE FORMS AND CONVENTIONS OF REAL MEDIA PRODUCTS We decided not to involve the stereotypical element of aWe used blank screens with vulnerable female in our trailer, butcaptions to help the audience instead to make the trailer absentunderstand the storyline. We felt of the female sex. Thecaptions were better suited for a questionnaire we carried outhorror as a pose to a narrative voice brought us to this decision, asas it keeps the audience active and females were tired of seeingcaptivated females portrayed as victims and wanted to see something different. Dark settings to set a hostile atmosphere The soundtracks we used meet the conventions of a horror. We used a various range of these; creepy, sad, fast and slow sounds which worked well with activities occurring in the trailer

ANCILLARY Sticks to the color scheme of 2GMEDIA2 productions, allowing viewers to establish the synergy between different text. I,e MagazinesThe main focus of the poster isthe character located in thecentre, creating synergy as thebeing is also the main element ofour trailer. The mise en scene;umbrella keeps the identityunknown. The dark background fades in well with character not giving anything away, and forces the audience to research further into “Dark Secrets”
HOW EFFECTIVE IS THE COMBINATIONOF YOUR MAIN PRODUCTS ANDANCILLARY TEXT? We feel it was very effective as it was well thought out. What we kept constant: • The font (COPPERPLATE GOTHIC BOLD) with blood red color • The color scheme; Red, Black and White • The supernatural figure, as the main form of identification for “DARK SECRETS”
