Media a2 advanced portfolio evaluation

  1. 1. Media A2 Advanced Portfolio Evaluation.<br />LettieCoad<br />
  2. 2. In what way does your media product use, develop or challenge form and conventions of real media products?<br />
  3. 3. My media product used the conventions of real media texts:<br /> I achieved this through the research stages pre my production.<br />Through having a good understanding of what the conventions of real media texts were I was able to then follow these and conform to the conventional expectations of my audience.<br />The use of these conventions assisted me in keeping a high sense of authenticity in my product.<br />
  4. 4. I conformed to these conventions:<br />I conformed to the conventions of the real media texts as opposed to subverting away from them because I wanted to keep an authentic realistic feel to my product and I felt the most efficient way to do this was to stay within the codes and conventions the products I researched.<br />
  5. 5. How I did this specifically in my magazine:<br />In my magazine I did this through following the same font hierarchies and colour schemes as the real media texts I had researched.<br />I kept what I included on my front cover fairly similar to what I say was included on the magazines I read.<br />The language I used I also kept similar so that my product could appeal to the right target audience.<br />
  6. 6. Block Colour<br />Background<br />Cheap prices<br />Bold main story<br />Other Stories<br />
  7. 7. How I did this specifically in my poster:<br />There were not many posters I could find for new soaps so I had to alter what I researched and apply it to my brief.<br />I used a reality TV show called ‘The only way is Essex’s’ to base my product on. I felt this was appropriate because It had the same target audience and had similar themes that I incorporated into my product.<br />Things such as the lay out and style of ‘The only way is Essex’s’ poster I used to conform to the conventions I thought would be applicable to my poster.<br />
  8. 8. Silver headings<br />Smart Clothes<br />White Backgrounds<br />Girls in heels<br />
  9. 9. How I did this specifically in my trailer:<br />I conformed to the conventions of soap trailers through the editing and theme in my trailer.<br />The editing was quick to keep a young audience active and hold their attention.<br />The theme incorporating drugs and things that would relate to my target audience would also help were similar to that of real media texts.<br />
  10. 10. How effective is the combination of your main product and ancillary texts<br />
  11. 11. I believe that the combination between my main product and ancillary texts were effective in such a way that I kept continuity throughout the products.<br />Such as keeping the characters in the same clothes and for the magazine and poster I kept them in relatively the same pose.<br />
  12. 12. What have you learned from your audience feedback?<br />
  13. 13. Through my audience feedback I have learnt:<br />My Soap would have aired at the correct time for my specific target audience.<br />The poster was effective in creating interest aimed at my target audience.<br />The concept and narrative of my Soap would have been watched by the people I asked.<br />The continuity was good.<br />
  14. 14. I could have improved the realism in my magazine front cover.<br />The Trailer could have had a voice over to inform the audience more of what they should expect to see.<br />An older cast could have been more effective in relating to the audience.<br />
  15. 15. How did you use media technologies in the construction and research, planning and evaluation stage?<br />
  16. 16. Photoshop:<br />I used Photoshop in both my poster and my music magazine.<br />The magnetic lasso tool helped me to crop out the images I inserted onto my background.<br />Free transform to change the size of my images without loosing the quality.<br />Text tools helped me when I was making my magazine and I was able insert the text of my choice<br />
  17. 17. IMovie:<br />I used IMovie to edit my trailer.<br />I was able to put a soundtrack in over my trailer to create a more authentic effect.<br />I cold use transitions and I had a selection of different ones to move from one scene to another.<br />I could also crop scenes down and adjust audio and video.<br />
