There’ll be a lot of new content posted on here soon.
I’ve created a 32 page* magazine for my media studies coursework. Some articles are from scratch and some are better redesigns of what I have already made for the final sector magazine. The magazine is pretty much finished but is awaiting some content which is not yet available.
Just to give an outline to my coursework, originally I was supposed to research and create a music video but after a term, I had got nowhere with no ideas. I looked to the exam board website for any kind of inspiration and I came across a FAQ section for teachers. In this section I learnt that I had the option to make a magazine and that print based media could be submitted at both AS and A2 levels. I contacted the head of media and asked if I could change. A few strongly worded emails were sent back and forth and I was told it was too late to change and that the syllabus prevented print based media in both years. I replied with a link to the document from the exam board and that was that. I then received a phone call from the man himself saying I could do magazine but i was on my own. Victory.
Over Christmas I wrote my research essay and was completely caught up by the time to go back in january.
I decided that I would start my magazine straight away and I have now got a 95% finished magazine before I am meant to have started.
Keep looking on here for my magazine coming soon.
*my magazine has increased in size by 12 pages over the last 2 weeks so this figure could increase
