• The third link would be Ava’s red hair. I emphasised her red hair through editing on photoshop also on my ancillary products I used the colour red. The reason I did this was because her red hair is so prominent the same way the red makes my ancillary products pop out.
How will the audience recognise them as linked products?• My audience can recognise them as linked products because my artist is visible on all of the products. She looks the same on all of them.
Elements of real digipaks in my work I used a barcode, the Sony logo and copy right information which would all be seen on a real digipak. The spine of my album had a unique numeric code and the album name and the artist name. I have an image of my artist on the front of my album. Along with the album name and the artists name which is larger than the album name.
Examples of work that influenced meThese are a few albums that influenced me and helped me understand theconventions of a real album. The dubstep album showed me that its not allabout the artist so on the inside of my album on the cd I added an artist touchby writing all the lyrics on the CD. Rihanna’s album showed me that aconvention of an album is to have the artists picture. And Olly’s album showedme that for less known artists you must also have the artists name.
• Overall I believe my video and ancillary products were successful in a sense that they looked good. As my genre was dubstep I didn’t have many products to compare mine to, however in general as a music video and advertisement and digipak they came out really well. If I could change one thing would be that I would have added a few patterns on my work just to make it a little artistic as I’ve seen a few dubstep products have that.
• I believe my target audience will be attracted to my products as it will be different to what they’ve seen. As dubstep songs don’t have a video to go along with it as its more about the song, my video has a video without taking attention away from the actual music. Also as Ava Manhattan is a young and fresh face this will make her more interesting for the young men!
