Ancillary Task 1: Structure Of Double Page Spreads

Double page spreads can be used in a variety of ways depending on which type of magazine it features within, one of the most important factors in this is Language types. For example; if it features within a teen magazine, then it will be very informal and chatty. In comparison to a news paper double page spread will be very informative and structured.

Type 1- Teen Magazine


Here you can see this particular double page spread is used in order to present a variety of information that the celebrity has said. Obviously this type of double page spread is known as teeny, therefore would not be something I will be looking at what so ever however it is nice to look at the structure differences in what magazine types they are in.

Type 2- Radio Times


This is more like something that I want to be producing in my ancillary as this is a screenshot taken from radio times magazine (a very typical magazine for tv series and documentaries to feature in). This is a short interview with David Tennent and Karen Gillian, and they talk about filming doctor who and what their life is like other than the tv series. The way that this one is presented is a main photo on the left (that you cannot see) and the right is presented around a photo of the two main characters. This is a good way to advertise when the show is on- screen-shot-2016-11-07-at-09-21-40 so anybody that interested can tune in and watch.

As well as talk about the characters within the series- Screen Shot 2016-11-07 at 09.22.58.png.

Type 3- Double Page


Here again, is a Dr. Who double page spread. This is presented fairly the same as the one above however this is a different type of post. Whilst the last was an interview, this one is a behind the scenes sneak peak in the tv show. This is more visual than the other one as there are a variety of different photos, which feature the stereotypical blue box (that everyone knows of or about).
