Digi Pak progress

After deciding my digi pak wasn't conforming to the same ideas and themes as the video and advert I have changed some of the images etc and this is how its coming along.

Magazine advert so far...

This is my advert I believe it follows the conventions that will be used in our magazine and there fore is an effective advert for my band.

The group have found all the members for the band and the living dead girl, we think they will be suitable and fit the parts extremely well. The band are comprised of real musicians that actually play the instruments they will be using in the video and have also played in bands in the past or are currently. We know that coming from bands they will understand the dynamics well and this will help give the video a look of authenticity as we can't use the real band. Kieran Curtis on bass guitar, Alex Moore on Guitar and vocals, Dan Biddle on Guitar, and Giorgio Manganiello on Drums. The living dead girl will be played by Bonnie Brinkworth a member of our group, the role is not extensive and we think she was best suited for the role. Taking these things into consideration we gave her the part. in terms of mise on scene of the video, the band will be dressed as hard rock musicians. This will involve band t shirts, leather jackets, bandannas, and boots. The living dead girl will wear some sort of gothic style dress.

digi pak continued

Since the last blog of my digi pak, it has came on a lot I now have 6 sides and much better quality photos. I have also used editing tools to effect the text so it stands out much more than previously.-

Mood board

This is the mood board for the song numbers by Altervertigo,as a group we used synaesthesia to define what we thought should be in the video and then confirmed with a target audience that these images were ok and that we weren't missing anything important.

Audience profile

This shows what we believe the audience would associate with the music, it includes their interests and hobbies. The audience would be defined as hedonists and individuals as they go against certain aspects of society. This would include the way they dress as it is not the 'in' trend. They would go to a number of gigs within the year and go out at the weekend to drink with mates, but at bars instead of clubs like other teens.
On the Jicnar scale they would be considered C1 - D and between the ages of 16 - 19.
Other music they would listen to would include Bullet for my Valentine, Metallica and Avenged Severnfold.

The Presentation

This was our pitch that we presentented to the class I also showed it to some of the actors we will be using in the video who were impressed by it. The main criticism was generating power as the majority of it will be done at a stately home and to make sure the use of the dead girl is not comical, but apart from this everything was ok.

Technology week

Within the week my skills developed as I experimented, with the filming aspects as I got used to the new cameras, but also in terms of editing as I learnt to use after effects and the advantages it holds. After effects helps you achieve creative things that you wouldn't be able to without the technological skills. It was important that I learnt how to use this well so it wouldn't hinder my creativity, and that was my main motivation for learning these skills. I want to produce the best work I can so need to understand how to use the technology to achieve this.

The relationship between skills and creativity could be argued to be that you are creative and come up with an idea, then learn the skills to achieve this. Or in learning the skills and having the technical ability you become creative and come up with ideas. I believe it is a mix between the two and that the relationship is constantly changing as you learn new skills and are inspired creatively.
