Finished magazine !!!!!! :)

world wide viewing of my project!!!!!! Evaluation

As you can see people from all over the world have been viewing my blog, this shows people are interested in music projects.
It also shows that to advertise a product, a good way of revealing it is online. About 200 people have viewed my magazine and if they thought it was professional they would buy it. My blog has been operating for 3 months and there has been 200 views, and it is going up every day as this week i have had 47 views so my blog is becoming increasingly popular.

Finished magazine !!!!

EVALUATION - (What kind of media institution might distribute your media product?)

I have researched Bauer media magazines and Q magazine featured on the website which was my style model, it owns over 80 brands of music magazine, which shows there is alot of competition in the music magazine world. I think Bauer media would distribute my magazine as it is proffesional and it would make money, would fit in well with the other magazines as there is two indie and one rock magazine so i think there is room for another indie/rock magazine.

EVALUATION - (How does your media product represent particular social groups?)

I used two "regular" people on my front cover to appeal to working class people as their rise to fame has been a success like a rags to riches story. Teenagers will relate to her as they could believe they can become famous.
The way they dress can influence teenagers in a certain way to dress as natalie and sam are dressed in an individual style. The magazine fits the indie rock genre so people who follow indie rock will be interested in the magazine. i have included names such as "dave grohl" this attracts people to read it as dave grohl is one of the biggest names in the music industry. Rock is dominated by men, women do not really play a big part in rock but i have broke conventions and made natalie lead singer of "plectrum". But over the last few years women have started to appear more in bands, but we still see them used as sex models in music videos by male artists like queens of the stone age. Hayley williams is now the lead singer of a very successful band which shows women can become as big as men.
My main audience is men that is why there is a female on the front cover and mainly men are interested in rock. I have priced it at £2.99 so it is affordable for working class people and so the magazine makers make money.

EVALUATION - (What have you learnt about technologies throughout the proceess? AND Looking back at the preliminary task, what have you learnt?

Since i started my preliminary task i have learnt to blog every piece of work i do this makes me a prosumer as i am producing multimedia work that anybody can view. This also means i am a consumer and producer as i have looked at other magazines.

audience feedback

I interviewed natalie wood about my magazine, i asked her what she thinks.
Natalie said she would buy my magazine as she is interested in that sort of music, and she thinks the magazine fits the genre of rock, she said it looks proffesional and she wouldnt be able to tell if it was made by a student if it was on the shelves. The magazine is aimed at males and females so she enjoyed looking at it.

audience feedback

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