Evaluation Presentation

  1. 1. Evaluation
  2. 2. In what ways does your media product use, develop, and challenge forms and conventions of real media products? <ul><li>My music magazine uses conventions of real music magazines such as having the main image standing over the title. It also follows the common theme in rock magazines of having a busy front cover. My magazine develops conventions of other rock magazines as I believe it is more colourful and vibrant compared to other rock magazines. </li></ul>
  3. 3. How does your media product represent particular social groups? <ul><li>Being a music magazine, I believe my media product represents different social groups in the same way that music does. My magazine represents those interested in rock and indie music. </li></ul>
  4. 4. What kind of media institution might distribute your media product and why? <ul><li>My music magazine is likely to be stocked in newsagents, some supermarkets, and some large retailers such as WHSmith and HMV. This is because the magazine focuses on the rock and indie genres of music, both are fairly mainstream and popular genres of music so would be widely available to the mainstream market. It may also be sold in specialist music shops as the magazine would closely relate to what is mainly being sold in these shops. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Who would be the audience for your media product and why? <ul><li>The audience for my magazine would be primarily teenagers and young adults interested rock music . Teenagers and young adults because these are the main demographic that listen to rock and indie music, and those interested in rock music as this is main subject in the magazine. </li></ul>
  6. 6. How did you address/ attract your audience? <ul><li>I used my magazine’s front cover to address and attract the reader by including devices such as rhetorical questions which invite the reader to read the magazine. Moreover the word “exclusive” tells the reader that this is the only place to read the article, therefore encouraging them to buy the magazine. Also, the “plus” section and the section above the title emphasise just how much is in the magazine. As well as this I used a presentation that would appeal to my target audience, for example, a large, bold, black font that looks slightly distorted for the title. </li></ul>
  7. 7. What have you learnt about technologies from the process of constructing this product? <ul><li>Through the process of creating my music magazine I have learnt how to use the program ”Macromedia Fireworks”. Furthermore I have learnt how to edit images more effectively. I have also improved my use of fonts and colours on a computer. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Looking back at your preliminary task, what do you feel you have learnt in the progression from it to the full product? <ul><li>During the progression from the design of my school magazine to the design of my music magazine I feel I have improved in using “Macromedia Fireworks”. In addition I have learnt to use a wider range of fonts, colours and presentational devices. Also, I think my photography skills have slightly improved. </li></ul>
