Transcript of In what ways does your media product use, develop or challenge forms and conventions of real media products?
Conclusion Generally I feel that my products use the conventions a lot more than they challenge them, and the products look like they fit the genre. In what ways does your media product use, develop or challenge forms and conventions of real media products? For my production, I researched many videos, posters and digipaks to help me create my own products, and I used many of the conventions in my products. I noticed in the digipaks there was a theme of showing obscure things, and not focusing on the band, and so I carried this on by using a lake as my front cover. I also noticed that most bands in this genre have a lyrics page in their CD for their fans, so I also used this convention. Generally I think my Digipak uses the conventions rather than challenging them I also used many conventions of real products to create my video. Looking at similar bands such as Two Door Cinema Club and The Kooks, I discovered that there was a pattern of using a half performance/ half other, and I followed this in my video. I also used inspiration from older bands such as The Monkeys and Supergrass, who used similar ideas in their videos of the band mucking around together. Whilst researching real posters in this genre, I discovered that many of them used the same picture as the digipak front cover, I decided to follow this idea, although I did not use my front cover, but one of the other pictures instead. I also tried to make sure it was as professional as possible by using iTunes and amazon logo's as well as the twitter music logo to create an authentic look to it and fit the conventions.
