Mockumentary Article Progression: Review Scores

I have made some scores for the article. I ensured I had three sub-sections, "Anticipation", "Enjoyment", and "In Retrospect".
For "Anticipation", I decided to credit the director. I gave it a 3 out of 5 as Little White Lies is rather strict with their grading and I wanted to be realistic with my grading.
When it came to grading "Enjoyment", I wanted a very positive response. I kept the reasoning short and sweet as it leave it up to the audience to go and see if they agree with it.
"In Retrospect" takes a more technical approach. This shows that my mockumentary can be seen from a serious approach.

Mockumentary Article Progress: Credits

I then added some credits and a release date for the mockumentary.

I used italics and a similar font to that used in other Little White Lies articles for the roles. I then wrote the names of the director and cast in full bold capitals as this, again, is what Little White Lies has used in their reviews.

Mockumentary Article Progress: Creating Columns and Text

Firstly I made a review for my mockumentary using Microsoft Word.

I then created columns on Premiere and placed the text into them.

Mockumentarry Editing Progress: Changing #TheSupply Graphic

After showing my target audience this scene, they said that the #TheSupply is too large and that the font does not work well with the scene. I decided to change the style of it as this would  make it more appealing to them.     

I began by using Premiere's Essential Graphics section to create a smaller hashtag which would be blurred at first, but would quickly focus. By doing this is catch the audience's attention for a brief second, letting them know that there is a hashtag for my mockumentary.

Mockumentary Article Progress: Page Layouts and InDesign

So since I am going to be creating an article for my mockmentary, I've decided to use Adobe InDesign as it is the software I am most familiar with, and I know it can be used to create professional looking articles.

I wanted to create an article for Little White Lies magazine, this is a British TV and Film review magazine. I measured out a copy of the magazine and found it was 24.5cm x 19.5cm.

To begin with I needed an image from my mockumentary to be used as the main image in the article. So after I asked my target audience which image I should use, they decided on an angry looking supply teacher.
 I added it to the new document.
Now I will need to add text to the blank page.
