Advertisement for the Stanley Kubrick Collection.

Extracts from this document...


MEDIA STUDIES Ciaran Sainty Image Analysis 12/9/03 Advertisement for the Stanley Kubrick Collection This advertisement was found in Mojo magazine, which is laid out very much in a tabloid newspaper style. The black background to the advert may be intentional, as it contrasts with the rest of the magazine, drawing attention to it. A large bold typeface is used in white to spell out the words 'Stanley Kubrick' across the top of the page, again contrasting with the black background. Below this is a fairly small image of a close up of an aging man, looking away from the camera.

It is not actually part of the advert for the Stanley Kubrick films, but a related product, the box set. The red background of this section separates it from the rest of the advert, and makes it stand out as well.

We are not told what the special bonus title is with words, but are instead led to assume that it is the 'Stanley Kubrick: A Life In Pictures' documentary which is pictured next to a picture of the box set. At the very bottom of the page, there are the logos for Turner Classic Movies, Warner Brothers, Columbia TriStar and Turner Entertainment, along with the copyright information. ...read more.

    Therefore, due to the vague of the text, the ad may be connoting a broad, pseudo feminist lifestyle approach. By using the concept of "holding to your choices" the text may be hinting at broader issues than just the alcohol seen in this ad.
