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.
SB/RM - Deconstructing Digipak: Nirvana "Nevermind"
Artist: Nirvana Album: Nevermind Album Producer: Butch Vig
Record Company: DGC Records
Year Released: 2011 (originally released in 1991)
Additional Information: 20th Anniversary Edition, this features the basic CD as well as B-Sides, Smart Studio Sessions, The Boombox Rehearsals and BBC sessions.
The digipak also contains a small booklet containing photographs of the band with brief information about the album and credits on the songs included on the two CDs. The outer-casing has a blue theme, with an image of a baby swimming under water, with a dollar waving on front of it, the blue theme carries on apart from on one of the interior panels where a red panel with a monkey appears. On the inside the theme is that of a notebook with handwritten song listings.
The writing style used in this digipak is the same style as their previous one (Bleach) except from the title "Nevermind" which ties into the artwork as it is written in a style similar to that of water.
