In what ways does your media product use, develop or challenge forms and conventions of real media products?

  1. 1. In what ways does your media product use, develop or challenge forms and conventions of real media products? (Question One)
  2. 2. How is my Product similar to existing products on the market? • I have used typical codes and conventions of a real music magazines and have followed the same generic layout. • I have done this by including all the same features of a real product.
  3. 3. Features I have used include: (On the cover of my magazine) • Masthead • Seal of approval • Main headline • Pull quotation from interview • Cover lines • Bar code • Mentions bands and music groups • Main image, close up • Direct mode of address
  4. 4. Comparing features used (on cover) : 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 7 10 1 8 9 12 2 3 4 5 6 11 13 Masthead Seal of approval Main headline Pull quotation Cover lines Bar code Mentions bands Main image, close up 9. Banner along top 10. Cover line bottom right 11. Direct mode of address 12. Barcode bottom right 13. Introduction of a second text colour (bright)
  5. 5. Similarities with my magazine and real magazines on the market • I have used a direct mode of address as many magazines do. This attracts the audience and connects the reader with the artist • I have used the same colour scheme (red, black and white) as many music magazines use of this genre (grunge/alternative) • I have included a seal of approval on the cover of my magazine which advertises content inside of my magazine • I have used a close up for the photo of my image as, many do when only featuring one artist. Sometimes a medium shot or long shot will be used when showing two artists or a band (as shown in the example cover of NME Magazine featuring Alex Turner and Miles Kane
  6. 6. Differences with my magazine and real magazines on the market • Many magazines will introduce a separate colour on the cover of the magazine (e.g. Yellow or blue) in order to highlight one particular plug • On the cover of my magazine I included names of bands and artists in order to clearly show the genre of my magazine and to advertise the content inside
  7. 7. Features I have used include: (On the contents page of my magazine) • Title of the page • Small version of masthead • Band index • Subscription section • Subheadings • Multiple images • Page numbers over images • Small version of cover page
  8. 8. Comparing features used (on the contents page) : 3 1 4 9 2 5 8 7 10 6 1. Title of page (‘contents’) 2. Small version of the masthead 3. Band index 4. Subscription section 5. Subheadings 6. Multiple images 7. Page numbers over photos 8. Small version of the cover page 9. Introduction of a highlighting colour (e.g. Yellow text) 10. Same font for title as used for masthead
  9. 9. Similarities with my magazine content page and real magazines on the market • I have effectively carried the same style and look from the cover over to the contents page by using the same fonts and colours • I have included a small version of the masthead on the contents page. This is what many magazines do so that the magazine is easily recognisable and their brand is recognisable • I have filled the contents page with multiple images and a lot of text so that it shows that the magazine has a lot of content and is worth the money as the majority of my target audience would be students
  10. 10. Differences with my magazine and real magazines on the market • Compared to NME Magazine and Q magazine which I have been looking at I am the only magazine which titles the page with ‘Contents’. I decided to do this as this would be the first issue of my magazine and I wanted to make it clear what each page was
  11. 11. On my double page spread: Features used include: • Small version of my masthead • Text in multiple columns • One main image • Pull quote in bubble within the text of the interview • Artist name used as heading • Different coloured text highlighting key points • Drop cap used at the start of the interview • Black and white image • Image on the right hand side of the page
  12. 12. Comparing features used (on my double page spread) : 6 4 8 5 1 2 3 7 9 1. Small version of my masthead 2. Text in multiple columns 3. One main image 4. Pull quote in bubble within the text of the interview 5. Artist name used as heading 6. Different coloured text highlighting key points 7. Drop cap used at the start of the interview 8. Black and white image 9. Image on the right hand side of the page
  13. 13. Similarities with my magazine double page spread and real magazines on the market • I decided that I would put the image on the right hand side page. This was because I used a picture which hides the artists face as well as a heading which says the artists name. By putting the heading on the left and the image on the right- as we read from left to rightthe reader is able to identify the artist in the interview • It is typical for the image on the cover to not have a background. I therefore edited out the background in my image so that my magazine was more conventional and similar to a real magazine
  14. 14. How my page challenges the typical codes and conventions • It is conventional to use and image which uses a direct mode of address. This connects the artist more with the reader and they are easily recognisable • However I decided to use an image which covered the artists face with a guitar. This portrayed her as being mysterious- making the reader want to read the article in order to find out more about the artist • By also covering the face of the artist with the guitar is symbolises her passion for music as it shows that she puts music before everything in her life
