ALL - Final Music Video

Here is the final cut of our music video after months of long hard editing and reshoots/filming. Enjoy!

ALL - Final Magazine Advert

Here is the final magazine advert. The only difference seen from my previous magazine advert post is that the font for Destiny's Child title seen at the top of the advert is different to what it was before after feedback from my colleagues.

ALL - Final Digipak

Today we finally managed to finish the digipak after creating each prototype and obtaining feedback via our colleagues and Media teacher. 

Front cover
Here is the front cover. At the top, you can see the band name in large font which is usually seen in the R&B genre. Then we have the smaller font for the sub-title which gives off a quirky feel because of what it says. 

A bonus DVD sticker can also be seen  on the front cover as well, advertising a DVD and it's extras. Lastly, the main front cover picture consists of the three performers walking through a suburban environment. This is similar to the back of the digipak which I'll talk about to later.


Next, we have the spine of the digipak (as seen above). The colouring used for the spine creates a binary opposition between light and dark. This is due to the white font in black space and black font in white space which are similar to the yin yang symbols, which link in with the theory that the band in the video symbolise fallen angels. The catalogue number and company logo are also present.

Inner panel
Here, we have the inside of the digipak. The inside is a two-panel spread which has a picture of the band lying on the floor in the form of three separate images merged into one. The colours of the pictures which make the two-panel spread symbolise the past, present and future. Black and white = silent film associated with the past, colour = present day and blue = hologram linking in with the future. The initials for the band can also be seen. While there are a lack of credits, there are digipaks out there which lack credits such as the Britney Spears Greatest Hits: My Prerogative.

Back of digipak
Lastly, we have the back cover of the digipak which uses most of the conventions seen on digipak. These include, a track listing, list of bonus features, QR code, web addresses, a bar code, the company logo and copyright information. The picture used, links in with front cover because of change in shot type.
