How effective is the combination of your main product and ancillary texts?

The combination of my main product and ancillary texts is very effective as they use the same images and protagonists as in the music video which contributes to the verisimilitude of the text. It also contributes to the continuity because without using the same people for the main product and the digi pack, the products would not link together or flow very well. In my opinion, the aspect of the project which aids the effectiveness of the finished text would be our choice and use of images for the digi pack and ancillary text which "publicises" our main product. The poster captures the essence of what our video is about and by using the same characters it allows the audience to understand our project in more depth.

Together, they allow the audience to understand and create a narrative for themselves as we use enigma throughout our texts, by merely just suggesting why there is such hatred and rivalry between the two siblings in the music video. As a whole, without that particular sound track 'Girl With One Eye' our video would obviously not make sense as we've directed actions which link with the lyrics of the song.

Furthermore, little details such as font and colour we used all had a huge impact on how our audience viewed our finished product. As the blog describes, certain times we've had to make adjustments to our poster regarding to the font and writing which class mates described as "not suiting our genre of text".
