Evaluation of the media music magazine

  1. 1. Media music magazine Jacob Burman
  2. 2. In what ways does your media product use, develop or challenge forms and conventions of real media products?• My idea is slightly different to other magazines, however I got most of my ideas, how to set each page out, font and colours from looking at other magazines on the internet or in shops (Tesco’s, Morrison and the local post office). Such as my contents page is similar to one which I found on the internet, while my double page spread is similar to a double page spread in Nuts magazine, which I thought was a good way to set it out. Jacob Burman
  3. 3. How does your media product represent particular social groups?• My media product focuses mostly on the rock music genre, due to the fact that I prefer rock over most other music. This had a major effect on my ideas and where/why my inspiration came from. I personally think that it targets more of the rock/heavy music lovers due to colours, fonts and the double page spread as the main figure head is meant to be a typical rock head, with the long hair, guitars and his answers to some of the questions. Even the title “Rockstar” is a major hint to what type of music magazine it is. Jacob Burman
  4. 4. What kind of media institution might distribute your media product and why?• To distribute my magazine I would contact some magazine agents such as Bauer Media which produce a wide range of magazine in the United Kingdom. Bauer media distribute a wide range of magazines, including Heat magazine, Zoo, FHM, Kerrang, Empire and loads of other. This is good due to them distributing Kerrang, Magic, Planet Rock and other music magazines as mine would fit in with the music style and “vibe” of their articles. Jacob Burman
  5. 5. Who would be the audience for your media product?• The audience would be teens or adults who are interested in rock/heavy music which hints of classic tunes (which attracts the older readers). This is because of the genre the magazine is and some text/colours (Bold, black/white writing with hints of Yellow and blues to make parts stand out more than others). Also with the other artists mentioned on the Contents page are known in rock (Chad Kroger, Linkin Park) and rap (Eminem) which are pretty big or well-known in the music industry. Jacob Burman
  6. 6. How did you attract/address your audience?• With the music magazine I would attract the audience by putting articles which the audience wants to read and know about, also there would be interviews with both old and upcoming stars, so it doesn’t seem the same week in week out. Also the magazine would be out every two weeks, so it doesn’t seem reoccurring and have to repeat itself. Also it would attract them by either the main headliner and (if any) the instrument on the front cover. Jacob Burman
  7. 7. What have you learnt about technologies from the process of constructing this product?• Over the last couple of months I have learnt many different ways to design, attract and distribute a magazine. I have learnt many different skills on Photoshop, such as merging two images ( Right and left page of my article) together, I also found out how to cut a letter to rotate on a “learn Photoshop day”. I thing Photoshop is a lot more advanced compared to pain which I used to us due to me not understanding Photoshop.• I also used ways to fix an image so it doesn’t stretch to “mess up” the image. I also over came my front drama as I was unsure on what font I was going to use so it didn’t seem bland and all the same. Jacob Burman
  8. 8. Looking back at your preliminary task, what doyou feel you have learnt in the progression from it to the full product?• Compared to my college magazine I used a wider range of skill and equipment, such as when I was taking pictures for my college mag, I used my Ipad to take the photo and they were out in the open around the college campus. However when I did my music mag, I used a professional camera in a studio with props that we brought in. I also used more and better fonts on the music mag compared to the two or three I used in my college one. Also I did more research on the music mag, such as looking at other music magazines and looking on websites, while with the college magazine I just expanded from my idea at the start. Jacob Burman
