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

our media product used many conventions of a real media product. for example we were assigned to produce a digi pack, this is a key form of promoting a media product through selling the artist and their music in a large digital pack. this pack consists of photos of the group, the CD of the group and it also promotes the musical genre of the group. 

our second product of a real media product was our assignment to create and publish a magazine advert to show the artist and our group. we did this through a group photo, we also designed the magazine advert to match the genre of the artist. we did this by using designs and colours that we thought would suit not only the song but the artist himself, lyrics born.

overall as a group i feel we produce and overall product that not challenged conventions of a real media product but used many of the real conventions a good media product should. overall i feel that our product showed realism and technical excellence and i hope that it will produce a good grade.   

  2.  How effective is the combination of your main product and ancillary texts?

the combination of the main product i.e the video and the ancillary texts such as the digipack and the magazine advert was very effective in that it would give everyone an understanding of the artist, the song and most importantly the genre. the combination of this is crucial in selling the product because it gives people of all varieties a chance to notice us. whether they are reading a magazine or seeing the digipack sold in shops. 

3. what have you learnt from your audience feedback? 

Really good variety of camera shots that are put together well in a sequence at the beginning. this was  helpful comment as it made us carry on the style of editing throughout the video. 'its interesting and well timed to the beat of the song which is likely to draw the viewer into the video'. a helpful quote from this group as it has showed that people have noticed what we were trying to achieve through this type of editing. we had a couple of constructive criticisms that made us edit the video to meet these comments. for example another group stated that at points though the video could use faster editing to make it more interesting because the cuts are quite slow at points which seem to lag a wee bit and makes you lose all concentration such as the lip syncing part at the start which goes on for a a little bit longer then necessary.  we learnt a lot from these criticisms and hopefully edited our project to a high standard. 

4. how did you use new media technologies in the construction and research, planning and evaluation stages?

we used many new media technologies in constructing our media product. for example we used programmes such as final cut , adobe photoshop  and youtube. we used final cut to upload our footage and edit it perfectally ready to upload onto blogger.
