CCR 4 – How did you integrate technologies (software, hardware and online) in this project?

CCR3 – How do your products engage with the audience and how would they be distributed as real media products?


CCR 2 – How do the elements of your production work together to create a sense of ‘branding’?

This is a video that we made to explain the branding that we integrated into our video, website, and digipak.

CCR1 – How do your products use or challenge conventions and how do they represent social groups or issues?

How do your products use or challenge conventions and how do they represent social groups or issues?


Here is a mission statement that we made in our group. This slideshow gives us an idea of our target audience and helped us form our mission statement.


Using Wix we have been able to create a website designed around our music video and digipak. We learnt new skills and techniques within making a website during this task.

  • In the picture below you can see the “Add” tab. This tab is very useful as this is where you can find anything from Fonts to Buttons. There are a lot of options for every sections which gave us a large variety of designs to chose from. We were also able to edit the sizes, fonts and colours within buttons which helped us personalize the website and make it follow the theme we have set. These options let us create a star image and a brand which users can associate with the star as we could decide whether we wanted to make the writing look warm and inviting or dark and mysterious.

  • Here is a screenshot of the media tab which is where we could see the files that we have uploaded to wix. This tab was also very useful as it meant that once we had imported one picture we would have access to it easily through wix without having to re-upload it. Below the site files there are also a lot of stock images and other stock design features which we could use if we needed to. We only used our own images.


Here is a screencastify video of us evaluating the bring me the horizon website to help us further understand websites and what techniques are used to draw users in.



While making our digipak i have learnt a lot about how to use photoshop, for example I have learnt how to bring handwritten text into photoshop. We managed to do this by scanning the piece of paper with the writing on it into Photoshop. Then we used the magic wand tool to remove the background and any gaps of white that we had missed. This left us with only the writing. This brought the star closer to the audience as you would usually only see handwriting on personal letters or a piece of paper. Bringing handwriting into the digipak makes it looks more personal and cause the star to been seen more as a friend.

I have also learnt about how to morph text and adjust the way it bends. I used the text warp tool to create a flag effect on the writing. This made the writing more interesting and added another layer to what would have been quite a boring black page. We also did this as in our genre there are rarely pages of just plain text so doing this also impacted the relevance to the genre.


What went well?

  • We managed to get a variety of angles and shot distances which will be very useful later on when we are deciding which image looks best as we will have a large choice and variety.
  • The mise-en-scene was effective and came out looking very good on camera.
  • We were able to figure out the camera settings quickly and easily which meant we had a lot of time to shoot and get all the images we needed.

What did not go so well?

  • We could have used a variety of backgrounds as this might have made the images more interesting as they add another layer to the picture.
  • Experimenting with the lighting could have made for some interesting images and this is something we did not do a lot of.

What would we do differently next time?

  • We would experiment with using different background and colours in the picture
  • We would also get a wider shot distance variety
