Introduction

Explain the process that you went through to create and market your band, you must use specific media vocabulary In this term, we have been studying media. During this time, we have created a band as our 'product'. My band has been targeted at teenagers and young adults. The image I aimed create for my band, was a 'bad-boy' or 'gangster' image.
