How effective is the combination of your main product and ancillary texts?

  1. 1. How effective is the combination of your main product and ancillary texts?
  2. 2. Throughout the process of creating my main product and ancillary texts, I ensured that a high level of continuity was visible to create a professional product that emulated the features of a not only the horror genre but a real media product. Although I wanted to link the trailer and ancillary texts, I also felt that it was essential to make each distinctive from each other and other media products in the same category.
  3. 3. The main link between my main product and ancillary texts is the focus on the main character ‘Carmen’. This is evident in all the products, specifically the ancillary texts, which feature close up images of the character to introduce her to the public as their purpose is to advertise the film. Doing this for both texts meant that the focus on the character was strengthened and exaggerated. A similar close up was used within my trailer to, again, continue this link. Although I used similar images, I edited them in different ways while still encompassing the same colours to demonstrate the link. Both images portray the character as dead; the poster using the white eyes and the magazine using the cracked and bruised skin.
  4. 4. The typography for the title of the film ‘Carmen’ appears in different fonts and sizes when featured in each different product. Rather than keep the font constant throughout, I felt that I needed to adapt each font to the product in which it features. I felt that the typography for the magazine suited a block type font due to what I had seen featured in real media products. However, for the poster I wanted to get across the horror genre and for this I felt a handwritten, scribbled font would be most appropriate. To keep each text somewhat similar, the dark red colour was kept the same, also with a black background. This creates enigma and promotes the genre as red and black are typical to horror. The typgoraphy, however, was always kept at a large font to promote the film.
