Becoming Prosumer

Initially, I started using Blogspot as a consumer, meaning I used it as an educational tool to learn more about media. However, as I started posting more and more of the things I learned onto my blog, with various presentations, and things to help me and others revise, my blog itself became an educational tool, therefore I became a prosumer, giving educational material for others to consume.

Ancillary - Digipak inside

This is the inside of my digipak, the side where the cd itself will sit. I've carried on the tape theme from the front cover yet also added the natural wood finish from the back of my guitar as a background, keeping with the acoustic guitar theme too.

Poster Update

I made some slight changes such as removing the drop shadow from around the text and removing the noise over the text too, I also lowered the opacity of the drop shadows around the album images.

Ancillary Task - Poster

I've finished the poster for my project. I gave it a static-noise background and applied the same effect to the main text except I gave those layers drop shadows, other than that everything else is practically un-edited. I'm very happy with this finished product

Some quotes to remember

"Genres are created through a process of repetition and recognition leading to anticipation and expectation"

"Genres are instances of repetition and difference"
"difference is absolutely essential to the economy of genre"

"Narrative is a way of organising spatial and temporal into a cause and effect chain of events with a beginning, middle and end that embodies a judgement about the nature of the events as well as demonstrates how it is possible to know, and hence narrate, the events"
-BRANNIGAN E. (Narrative Comprehension and Film)
