How did you use new media technologies in the construction and research, planning and evaluation stage?

Evaluation question 3

what have you learned from your audience feed back?

To get audience feedback we used a website called survey monkey to get the opinions on our video, we also filmed people watching and talking about the video. we asked people aged16-53, but we focus on our main target audience being teenagers, generally within the audience the people that listen to music videos of a similar genre they enjoyed our video but people that listen to pop/r&b genre didn't really understand the video, one point was they didn't understand what the artist was saying. Meanwhile they also said that it should show more narrative to help with the understanding.

Ancillary: Artist Iconography

We have started to look at our ancillary task by researching artist of the same genre and looking at there album covers, we noticed most of the album have the same concept showing similar text with in there album cover, with a old gothic feel to it, meanwhile they also show colours of the same brightness being quite dark colours such as blacks,brown,burgundy and white for outlines. Some of the covers show the band/artist but most of them show a location picture.
