Storyboard Text

  • The first stage of the production of a magazine is coming up with the idea of content, and researching the idea. Many magazine producers also create a schedule so that the magazine meets a deadline of editing and publishing. The researching would include, looking into the target audience, and the needs, wants and stereotypes of this specific TA. For example if the magazine is to target the social group of 'goths' the genre conventions would need to be researched of current professional magazines, to be able to apply to your own. As magazines targeted to goths, generally have a dark colour palette and content relating to rock and indie music. Other aspects to thought about would be the stereotype and target audience needs, for example what they are stereotyped with, so it can be included within the magazine to be specifically aimed.
  • The planning stage would involve creating flat plans and contents plans to get a sense of composition of the page and if space is used effectively, as well as coming up with the content and general ideas for the images and sell lines, as well as a detailed plan for the stories featuring within. Other aspects to be included are: •The models, as they should compliment the TA by either suiting them or suiting the type of models who feature in professional magazines •A risk assessment and location recce of possible locations to photo shoot and gather a range of images, as this can be in the outside environment or in a photography studio
  • The production stage would involve many stages: •The photo shoot, which may need to be done several times, as the mise en scene of the model may need to be changed, or the composition of the shot •Using software such as photoshop, and Indesign to create the product by using and creating fonts which are suited and using what is appropriate of the type of magazine e.g. if shapes are necessary for a younger target audience •Photoshop may also be used to edit the photos, as many magazines blemish and change the appearance of models so that they are 'perfect' and well suited to the TA
  • Production
  • Proof production: The first proof is then sent to the printer, to be printed as an initial copy of the magazine to be returned to the magazine editors to be checked over. The final proof is then proof read by the magazine staff, to be able to identify any errors such as spelling, colour, layout or anything which does not make the magazine to be appear professional. Once any changes have been made, the final proof is sent to the printer for final printing.
  • Proofing
  • After all the changes have been made the printer then prints all the copies of the magazine needed, and after this process they are then sent to the distributors which may be retailers or newsagents to be displayed on their stands, for the public to buy.
