EvaluationBy Nadine Mapunzamoyo
1.• Our media product Our media product challenges forms of other real media products because it is produced in a more realistic way, old style editing has been used, familiar locations have been used and ordinary people have acted/participated in this product therefore it has heart and it relates to the audience unlike real media products which have to use famous stars and surprisingly there is no feeling or heart or emotion in their products and normal people find it to relate to their product.
2.• In our media product middle aged social group have been represented as storeowners/business people because it is stereotyped that when people get a little older they seem to loose interest in long manual handling jobs therefore they settle down in small businesses like having corner stores in order to keep the money coming to support their families and to be responsible. However teenagers have been represented in a quite opposite way to the middle aged social class. They have been stereotyped as being the ‘lively ones’ who seem to be up for everything and therefore they are seen walking and a lot and very lively.
3.• A independent institution like Nowhere Fast Production might distribute our product because it is famous for low budget productions which is exactly what our product is and it accepts small films which allows anyone to make their own films, it also appears to the British audience and it has an innovating storyline.
4.• Our media product is mainly aimed at teenagers both male and female however this product might not attract all teens as it is different in its own way.it is a very unique product which is likely to attract teen comic book lovers. The audience feedback I did also suggests also that our media product would appear more to teens who have taste mostly in superhero films.
5.• When attracting/addresing the audience we decided to basically consider what the audience itself prefers and what maybe something they would relate to therefore we decided to film the product in a very common area which gives a very realistic approach to normal every day life therefore this then helped the audience to engage as we wanted.
6.• From the process of constructing the product I have learnt how to use modern technology e.g. using the camera and the mas and iMovie. From iMovie I learnt how to make movie trailers, easily edit audio, add effects, and share my media product on Facebook, YouTube, and more. Since the start of the course in September 2011 I had no idea on how to use a iMac but now I am very confident in using once because my it skills have improved a lot and I now know how to improve and edit videos to look better.
7.• When the media product was being planned we could have prepared for it a bit more in order to shoot a more effective product. We should have considered a strategy first on what to do, where to do and how to save time as well as producing a quality product. However quality footage has been improved by involving more people and doing an audience research based on what the actual audience like. Different angles of filming have also been taken from different positions and more editing has been done.
