In the making.... Double Page spread

In decided that my double page spread was looking too much like an advert again therefore I used inspiration from double page soreads in which I have study and researched to make my doubloe page spread fit in the genre better.

So far....

Finushed Advert

As well as improving my branding of my advertisment I also used shadowing to make the text pop from the page and force the viewer to read the text in the same way the wasted youth culture is forcing it way onto the modern day society.

Exploring finished advert - click on the image to view the picture bigger.


I have also created a second final advert in which i moved the BBC logo , I shall use face to face and online audience feedback to see which my audience feel looks the best.

A2 outcome - finished documentary


video


although I have copy right permission for the tracks within my documentary , YouTube removed the audio completely off my project when I uploaded it to Youtube therefore I have have had to upload it onto my blog via blogger. I will therefore use focus groups, facebook and questionnaires to gather audience feedback.

Relating David Gauntlett Theroy to my media production

David Gauntlett quotes

"can you really blame TV for every social problem and anti-social complaints"

therefore reflecting my view point of the documentary in which teens are being influenced by the media for example news reports and TV dramas such as skins therefore my documentary could be asking do teens act up or feel they need to act this way to have a good time?

Gender In The Media

Stereotypical views of Gender:

Masculine

•Tough
•Hard
•Sweaty

Typically feminine

•Fragile
•Soft
•Fragrant

In terms of documentaries females normally deal with sensitive and emotional subjects such as death or rape appeals , whereas my documentary shall conflict with the normal as I have chosen to be the presenter of the documentary showing females behaving and acting yob-ish and similar to the males within the documentary , showing how modern day teens are loosing femininity and becoming a yob culture. Masked in war paint of make up.

The use if females within my print work is down to my research which has shown that female images within print are more likely to grab the attention of the masculine side of the audience whereas the female side of the audience and also study females more than men due to the huge increase of obsession of personal beauty though the increase in celeb culture and fashion magazines.
