Question 4

  1. 1. HOW DID YOU USE MEDIATECHNOLOGIES IN THECONSTRUCTION,RESEARCH, PLANNING,AND EVALUATION STAGE?
  2. 2.  Blogger Word YouTube Quark Final Cut Express Slideshare PowerPoint Google-Survey Monkey Photoshop Facebook/TwitterPROGRAMMES USED
  3. 3.  For my primary research I focused on expanding myknowledge of understanding what precisely goes into a‘Regional Magazine’ which Google provided a lot of myresearch. It allowed me to access existing products allowingme to capitalise upon the information I gained from outside ofa media technology such as a simple magazine. I also usedthe internet to research into target markets and readershipfigures in order to understand ideal target markets.RESEARCH
  4. 4.  During GCSE and AS level we were introduced to Blogger in orderto present our work in an easy and user-friendly manner. Since Ihad previous knowledge of this I decided it would be useful touse this as A2 as well as I could easily upload work to keep up todate with my previous work and be able to expand on this easilyfor future revisions. As with Blogger you can embed images and videos I used this injunction with Survey Monkey in order to ask research into mytarget market and incorporate them into my planning stages. Although, Blogger does have its flaws such as a lack of spell-checking and the need for an internet connection in order to saveand edit. Therefore, Microsoft Word was also an integral part ofmy Research and Planning due to being able to check over myspellings and mistakes and also being able to alter my work on-the-go such as train journeys or even when internet access justwasn’t available.RESEARCH AND PLANNING
  5. 5.  Mobile Devices was certainly an option to be used during myresearch and planning stages. Personally, I found it unsuitabledue to the nature of my task; a magazine is about simpledetails to make up an overall image. The size of a mobilescreen I feel is too small to be able to easily identify theseintegral things. Although, I did take advantage of the BloggerApp which allowed me to again post while on-the-go and beable to keep up to date with my blog whilst being unable toaccess a computer/laptop.RESEARCH AND PLANNING
  6. 6.  For the majority of my production I used Photoshop as due toGCSE and AS I had acquired quite a high level of skill and alsothe programme is generally used in the higher-end productionof magazines so using it in the construction of my productallowed me to access the same level of sophistication ofthose of professionals. Although, I did incorporate other DTP software as Photoshopis not ideal in terms of a writing and processing tool.Therefore, Quark allowed me to make pages of equally high-standard in word-processing as to my production work inPhotoshop for an overall high-standard product.CONSTRUCTION
  7. 7.  I used two types of Still Image camera in regards to myproduction work. As my front cover image was taken live ofthe band I did not want to risk a SLR camera due to its valueand therefore used a Nikon CoolPix as it’s quality is quitenear to that of the Digital SLR but of a fraction of the costallowing me to take better images due to the lowered risk ofbreakage. Although, for photography in less precarioussituations I did use the SLR for optimal quality to mymagazine and to create a sense of verisimilitude to myproducts.CONSTRUCTION
  8. 8.  I used Survey Monkey to gather feedback on my productionwork in order to make it to a higher standard and tosuccessfully target my audience Similarly, I used Social Networking such as Facebook andTwitter to contact my target market but also to spread mySurveys to gather more responses than would have beenachievable by hand.CONSTRUCTION
  9. 9.  For question 1 I decided to create a video and thus use FinalCut Express in order to edit this. Final Cut Express allows foradditional file format support such as .PSD files whichallowed me to integrate my Photoshop files for ease of accessto my products and swift creation of my Question 1. As I hadvery little knowledge of how to make a video I found Final CutExpress very technical for my limited skills so therefore had touse YouTube in order to get to grips with the programme. Ialso used a YETI Microphone in order to record my voice overas this emits outside interference, ideal for a busy -schoolenvironment. Wix.com was also integral to my evaluation as it allowed meto create an easy way to display my evaluation whilst allowingme to use the Web to my advantage and put Web 2.0 intopractise.EVALUATION
