  1. 1. In what ways does your media product use, develop or challenge forms and conventions of real media products. • My magazine generally follows the major conventions of a music magazine because I felt that I wanted my magazine to be easy to read and recognisable by the readers. I had a colour scheme run through the whole magazine with red, white, blue and black following the colours of a Union Jack, which with my theme being British bands I thought would fit in well. With my master head having a Union Jack running through it. I also included pull quote in my double page spread also with page numbers look like the ones found in the magazine Q which I thought people would be already used too. I followed an interview writing style with four columns of text which when I was doing my research I noticed that was the average amount of text. I also chose to use a plug on my front page to draw people in but instead of it being a sticker I chose the style of a medieval wax stamp to follow with the British theme running through the magazine. Also I chose to have the front page photo have a blank background to make the text stand out more and grab the audiences eye.
  2. 2. How does your media product represent particular social groups? • My magazine was aimed at people who where interested with British bands and I feel this is portrayed throughout my magazine. My magazine is aimed at a large age group from teenagers to middle aged adults this was done with a wide rage of new and old artists and bands but with the common theme of Rebellion, which is generally how teenagers are represented in media but also how when older groups in the magazine where and are still rebellious in the history of music. The language used in my magazine is very different the magazine is written as if there talking to the audience in the contents page. Relating the audience to the contents page. Also the different rage of bands would attract many different age groups however the fact I have teenagers playing the artist it makes Jarvis cocker look much younger making it more representative of that age group. Also Jarvis was known for rebelling the stereotypes of gender and nudity while performing that’s why my Jarvis has such pink lips and isn't wearing a shirt.
  3. 3. What kind of media institution might distribute your media product and why? • The Institution I would pitch my music magazine would be to Bauer media for many reasons. One is they already have an established music magazine selection and I feel the Rebel could fit along nicely of each magazine and become integrated with there repertoire of magazines. The music magazine they do sell are high quality mainly monthly magazines which is great for my price range and contents however I’d want my magazine to come out of a different day to other magazine such as Q and Kerrang to allow the readers to buy more than one magazine. Also they own many music channels which would allow rebel to one day have its own broadcasting channel with would feature the bands from the magazine. However Q do often publish things about bands that would feature in my magazine. But I feel that because my magazine is fully about British bands that there is a place in the market through Bauer for my magazine.
  4. 4. How did you attract/address your audience? • As my audience truly enjoys British music I felt that that should be the main focus of my music magazine, the thing that I feel draws regular readers back like my focus reader alexander the magazine relates to the reader in a way that the magazine is written as if it was talking to the reader and I think this appeals to most people. Also I represent the particular group of people who still buy vinyl records including album reviews in the magazine which as we've found out in recent news that the sales of vinyl records are up I feel that this would only boost sales of the magazine. The buzz word I used of a free CD would attract my readers as I feel Freebies would bust sales and appeal to my target readers. Also the fact my magazine is so British it doesn’t just appeal to my core target audience also people outside of Britain who have a fascination with British culture would buy the magazine.
  5. 5. What have you learnt about technologies from the process of constructing this product? • I used many different type of software during this project, using the blog and the Microsoft office pack I found easy as I’d been using them for years. But the learning curb came when using the camera and the production software. The camera for me I’ve had for a while however I never really knew how to use it to its full potential so I studied for a while on tutorials how to use all the different settings. Using adobe Photoshop was the hardest thing to master as I had basic knowledge of Photoshop as in terms of the tools from the side bar but nothing about changing the levels and contrast in the photo’s but once I had learnt that I found the magazine making enjoyable until it came to adding text to my magazine which is when I found out Photoshop wasn’t very good at text formatting so I used adobe InDesign to add my text which I found clunky at time when adding different layer to add a white box behind my text but it all came together.
  6. 6. Looking back at your preliminary task, what do you feel you have learnt in the progression from it to the full product? • I’ve learnt the most is that you should always plan because the more planning you do the more easier it is to make the product work, if eel I stuck to my plan well however I changed a few details once I got more confident with the software. Another thing I found out is that text look better on a blank background because it allows the text to stand out more but also the placing of text such as the headline to be behind the models head makes him look more 3-D on the page. Also the fact that you don’t need a lot of pictures look make your magazine look appealing. I only used two photos and three album artwork which I made myself. Also the fact that saving is key I lost about 4 hours of work due to the program either crashing or not saving properly which meant I was rushed at times but I feel that if I could go back I’d always back up a copy. Also I learnt that text can be read more easily if you have a white column behind it when it’s a darker picture. Also that less is more when it comes to editing photos.
