How does your production fit in with the values of radio 4 and its place in British life?
Dark main image
A reflection on the decisions you made to cut words, cast characters, edit the drama, making and use of sound effects, cuts to make scenes to redo and in general the process of creating a complex and subtle media text.
Award winning – shows Annabelle’s success with radio drama. Likely to be good.
Rhetorical question (why is she so perfect) – gets the audience guessing, already engaged with my radio drama
Colum's – sticks with the conventions of a listings page
Film – The popularity of film and television in today’s British life will attract readers to this page where they will see the preview of my radio drama
Theatre – very middle class. This will attract middle class listens (contemporary audience of radio 4)
Picture – makes the page look attractive
Pick of the day – fits with the conventions of a listings page.
Large font – eye capturing
Image – young woman. Blazer – middle class, business woman, serious.
Makes the written sound very popular – will make my audience more interested. Naming similar films will make audience members who enjoy these interested in my radio drama.
Sneak peek – audience who are interested will listen to this. Other audience members less interested may listen in to the sneak peak to see if it is something they would enjoy.
How was your advert constructed to sell the product and what was the values and conventions of the arts page of the publication it would be published in?
This title will entice the audience as they will questioning ‘Why not paradise?’ They will already be engaged with my radio drama.
This tells the audience when and where the radio drama is being placed and who it was created by. This gives the audience all their questions after becoming interested in the advert.
The shows the main location of the radio drama (Dr Reynolds room where Jake has his sessions with him. The water hints to the audience the story line (Jake surrounded by water on the island, drowning Rosie in the sea and his fear of water).
This Caption will give the audience a hint into the crime Jake has committed without stating what has happened. By questioning this the audience are already engaged with the radio drama. Having ‘dark days’ in yellow creates contrast with the red. Yellow gives of a light and happy feel which creates contrast against the word said.
This picture symbolises Rosie’s death and how Jake’s memory loss stops him from realising what he has done. The table acts as a barrier between Jake as his memory's. The love he had for Rosie is all he can remember. The Rose and bloody hands effectively represents the themes of love and tragedy. Audience would feel a sense of Romeo and Juliet or Titanic through this image. The bloody hands suggests a more horrific and disturbing story line.
