Welcome to my A2 blog. For this years' course, I will produce a portfolio of productions: a music video as my main text, plus a digipak cover and a magazine ad for the digipak. Along the way we will learn many narrative techniques and codes and conventions of the area, so stay tuned!
RM - Mag Ads: Gallows - "Grey Britain" and "The Vulture (Part II)"
Album: Grey Britain
Magazine Found In: Kerrang!
Album Magazine Advert
The majority of the page is the album artwork which features a Union Jack with a shield and a white rose overlaying the flag. The artists name (Gallows) and the album title (Grey Britain) also feature on the page, above the shield. At the bottom of the advert there is a list of UK tour dates. The advert also contains information including the release date of the album, which in this case is the 4th May 2009. There are also several website addresses including Relentless' to obtain exclusive studio footage, as well as the album's own website everythingisfallingapart.com
Quarter page advert for
the band's single
"The Vulture (Part II)
Earlier in the same magazine, same issue, there is another advert for the same band however this time it is for one of the albums singles "The Vulture (Act II)", it is also a quarter page advert unlike the one found later in the magazine for the album. Again the same text is used for the band's name and the single. The advert includes information about where the track can be downloaded this also includes a strip at the bottom of the advert for the full album.
