1. In what ways does your media product use, develop or challenge forms and conventions of real media products?
Our music video is a conventional pop music video and so in order for it to be conventional we had to research other pop music videos. We researched and analysed a number of pop music videos, including Little Mix- Move, Sugababes-Push the button and The Saturdays-Up. We decided, as a group, which conventions worked most successfully and which were necessary and incorporated this into our own music video.
Similarly, our ancillary task if conventional of other pop ancillaries. In order for it to be both conventional and successful we researched other pop ancillaries. We researched and analysed Little Mix and Atomic Kitten's CD covers and Nina Nesbitt's and Taylor Swift's advertisement. Then, as we had done with the music video, as a group, we decided which conventions would work most successfully and attract our target audience of teenage girls.
