Final Ancillary Task: Poster

For my ancillary products, I was more inspired by a more modern style of comic books rather than the old four colour comics with the Ben Day dots (which inspired Danielle's ancillary work). Mine are more of a subtle comic style.

Evaluation: Question 4

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

"New Digital media have fundamentally changed the ways in which we engage with all the media" - David Gauntlett (2007)
New digital media technology is constantly developing and changing the way we consume and react to media in all forms. Different forms of media are almost always found working in synergy with one another to create a complex web of networks to different audiences around the world. (Things like TV, radio, online and social networking). This could not have been possible in recent years. Synergy has changed the way we see media and has risen many possibilities in the media industry.

Evaluation: Question 3 part 2

How did you attract your audience?

Evaluation: Question 3 part 1

What have you learned from your audience feedback?

We showed the music video to four people. Two were of our target audience age and the other were of an older generation - to experiment with various ages. As expected, the two younger girls enjoyed the video and surprisingly so did the older couple. Everyone understood the narrative and found the video amusing. This goes to show how our video can attract a wide range of audiences with it being of a comedy genre, whether you like superheroes/comic books or not. Our original idea was going to be a lot more realistic, dramatic and go with a much slower song, however, instead we changed it to a comedy genre which overall ended up more successful as it appeals to a wider audience. The super hero scenes are deliberately bad to make it more comical - with inspiration from batman 1966 - and this can technically be seen as more realistic as super heroes are not real, therefore this style of film is more believable and relatable to the audience. The main criticism we got from our audience feedback was that there should have been more school/comic scenes, to help the narrative flow better. However, this was not possible due to casting issues and it was a shame we couldn't add more of the main narrative to our video, but it could not be helped.
