Planning: DPS


Mock Up:

DPS 2 .jpg

I chose a simple layout for my double page spread, with a main image taking up the majority of the pages as this is common convention of DPS overall not just in the film review genre as can be seen below in a real media product.


I chose to use a screenshot of a part of the action in my film instead of using a staged/photoshoot photo as it shows the reader more of an insight into what the film is and what to expect when watching it. This is also a common convention as it makes the reader become intrigued to whats going on and what will happen next.

Above you can see my completed DPS, the same layout used as in my mock up, i simply just added a review of the film and a subtitle to entice the reader into reading the rest of the  article once it has capture their attention.

I also added a box in the far right bottom corner to give the audience more detail on who is in the film, made the film, and what films it similar to further the viewers decision to whether they should go see it or will enjoy it, which again was another common convention I found in real media products as seen below.
