Welcome to my A2 Media Studies Blog. The brief is: to produce a music video, a digipak cover, and magazine advert for the digipak. Throughout the course we will be learning about conventions (general and genre specific) used for each of these products.

CO/RM - Class Digipak Deconstruction

Today (Friday 6th January 2012) the class were spilt up into pairs. Conor and myself were paired together and were given Linkin Park's "Minutes to Midnight" digipak. For this we found the following conventions.

- Album Artwork on the front panel with the band's name.
- Parental Advisory Explicit Content
- Colour scheme throughout which is different shades and tones of black and white
- A small application slip informing the consumer of the band's fan site and allowing him/her to join.
- Lyric Booklet containing producer and band member notes for each song, the entire album as well as personal thank-yous to people whom have helped create the band.
- Photograph montage with the bands logo overlaying.
- Track list, Producers, Barcode, copyright information of the back panel
- Band Name and Album Title on each side panel.
- Photographs of the band through the digipak. This includes the entire band covering three panels for the inside. The front and back panel are the front and back of the band in the same position but one the shot is from in front of them the second where the photograph is taken from behind them.
