About

This is a blog , dedicated to my Media Studies Course . I will publish every week new and interesting posts about Films , Photos, Magazines, and everything related to media.

 

AS Magazine task
Main task: the front page, contents and double-page spread of a new magazine. .
All images and text used in the main task must be original and produced by the candidate(s) with a minimum
of four images per candidate.
This task should be preceded by preliminary exercises to build up learners’ skills with equipment and their
understanding of conventions.
Process
Each candidate must have an individual blog which is started at the beginning of the project.
The process of research, planning and production, including refinement, changes and reflection on key
moments, and any individual contribution to a task undertaken as a group, is to be evidenced by each
candidate on their online blog. Some production elements such as storyboards may be shared by all
members of a group. Collaborators who worked with the candidate on research, planning and/or production
must be listed on the Individual Candidate Record Card under ‘other group members’.
Each candidate’s blog should also contain evidence of any preliminary exercises, the finished product and
the creative critical reflection (see below) and will comprise the complete evidence for the moderator at the
end of each project.
Centres should select blog software with appropriate capabilities to embed other applications.
Creative critical reflection
On completion of the product, candidates must reflect upon their work, using digital formats such as
director commentaries, slideshows with voiceover, podcasts, prezis or screencasts. The emphasis should
be on creative use of such tools to critically reflect on the production, guided by the following compulsory
questions:
1. How does your product use or challenge conventions and how does it represent social groups or issues?
2. How does your product engage with audiences and how would it be distributed as a real media text?
3. How did your production skills develop throughout this project?
4. How did you integrate technologies – software, hardware and online – in this project?Description of components

This critical reflection should be presented individually, though candidates may collaborate in the production
of responses. In their critical reflection, each candidate should give a clear indication of their contribution
to such collaboration to allow teachers to allocate an appropriate mark. Collaborators who worked with the
candidate on creative critical reflection must be listed on the Individual Candidate Record Card under ‘other
group members’.
