I think that my media products followed the conventions of real media products. This is because out short film follows the convention of a moralistic drama and a short film by lasting only 5 minutes, having limited characters and having a simple plot.
My poster follows the conventions of a film poster ticking all the conventions boxes. It has a credit block situated at the bottom on the poster, persuasive language and rating stars at the top of the poster, the main characters in the foreground and the main location at the background. I feel I have made sure that I made a poster that you can see at bus stops.
For my review I found it hard to emulate the style of Little White Lies especially the language but I feel that I have emulated it to the best of my ability and I think that it would be a review that would be seen in Little White Lies. It has a clear structure and clear use of the unique rating system, my review has a stylised photos, formal language and finally uses the contrasting colours in a box of the title of the film, director and the actors and finally the release date.
