Film Magazine Review

The most appropriate type of magazine for our film is a specialist film magazine which focuses mainly on independent films by new directors but also reviews upcoming blockbuster titles.The name of the magazine is Press Rewind and the target audience is specifically people who are interested in independent film companies and low budget productions, so the age groups targeted vary significantly from young film students to older, senior audiences. The mode of address of the magazine will consist of a formal style while the house style will consist of a large image as well as a large amount of text. The constants in film magazines such as strap lines, breakout boxes and subheadings will also be present in "Press Rewind".

Sample Paragraphs:
  • Following the immediate success of Christopher Aboiralor's new wave hit 'Rest in Pieces', whereby the criminal underworld of South London was so brutally exposed, he has once again taken to the scene this time to depict the struggle faced by youths in this day and age following the moral panic so rife, due to the medias constant exaggerations. The conflict endured by the different age, race & class groups is expertly illustrated through the use of metaphoric comparisons which do well to expose such problems.
  • Alexander Ojo once again adds to his bulging collection of stellar performances with the four star showing he produces in Aboiralor's gritty thriller 'Hoodie'. He makes a superb comeback following a few years of inactivity due to the arrival of his first son Ojo Jr. But he is one of the few shining lights to emerge from an otherwise drab showing from T&A studious. The story is far too predictable while the performance from Aboiralor is mediocre at best.
