In my evaluation, I will address the following questions:

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

  • How effective is the combination of your main product and ancillary tasks?

  • What have you learnt from audience feedback?

  • How did you use media technologies in the construction and research, planning and evaluation stages?

Magazine cover

As the second part of my ancillary task I have to create a film magazine cover, so I decided to analyse existing products to find conventions. The purpose of a film magazine is to promote upcoming films, usually reviewing them to inform audiences whether they are worth going to see or not.

After analysing exsiting magazines, I decided to draw a flat plan for my magazine cover. I decided to use a similar layout to 'Total Film'.

Title Font

To decide on which font we wanted to use for our film title, we created a sample of ten various fonts and then showed it to 50 of our target audience. This allowed us to see what one was the most eye catching, suitable and interesting.


  • Our results showed that the most popular font was number 3, receiving over 40% of the vote.

  • Most said that numbers 6 and 7 was too difficult to read, and therefore recommended that we didn't use it.

  • All 50 of our sample liked the colour scheme we chose, and believe it is fitting to the genre of our trailer.
