Website brief

The website which I am aiming to produce will be focused on a main charity website. The charity website which I am looking at is ‘’ this websites aims its information on people who have drug additions and therefore the information which it carries out is to help and explain what the drugs do. This website is a worldwide website aimed at anyone with a drug addiction, therefore it is a worldwide charity website.

I like the idea of this website because it doesn’t aim at one problem, it is aimed at a number of people with many different problems. Also it isn’t only posted online, this website has television adverts to advertise the website and what it does to help people.

The audience I think that ‘’ is aiming at are people from their teenage years around to the age of up to 30-40 years old, but then again the majority of the public can get something out of this website if needs be.

For my website I will aim to do this aswell. This is because it will have information carried out across the website and also it will have images, videos to help explain and give people the information which they are looking for.

The website will have information and also a donate page so people could give money to the charity and then expand the information they have and use it for a good cause.

Also there will be information on how to get in touch with the charity and therefore be able to ask any questions which they have and any enquires which they have also.

How do u register a domain name?

To register a domain name you would have to go onto a website which lets you create your own website, then you would need to check the availability of the website name and then if it is available you would have to pay.

For me I checked is was available which it was, and then I found out that it would cost £19.98 for it to run for 2 years.

Blogspot review.

Starting the year with the subject of media, I came into the subject with not knowing a lot about the subject. Within these first couple of weeks we have reviewed a fair few clips from Hollyoaks and also the new James Bond film, Casino Royal.

My perceptions at the start of the year where to do as well as I could and understand what we would be doing as soon as possible. From looking at these clips from Hollyoaks and the James Bond film, we have looked at the camera angles which we have used and also the lighting which they would have used to create the scene.

My perceptions from the start of the year and from now haven’t changed as I still want to learn about the angles and still would like to carry on learning as quickly as possible.

What has gone well for me is that I have learnt about the camera angles, the lighting and how they create the scene well and understood about the ways in which they do this. The small pieces of written work which we have had to do I believe have gone well as I have mostly understood the work as hopefully I have done the work to a good standard.

From watching the James Bond DVD I have learnt about the camera angles and also the lighting which they use to create the movie. At the beginning of the year I wouldn’t have known about this type of editing for movies and now looking at it more in depth I do understand about the lighting and the angles of the camera which they use.

Also we have looked at a short video clip, which is called ‘gone fishing’. This short clip has won various amounts of awards around the world, and watching it gave me more of an insite to the media world, using many different camera angles, lighting and also a very interesting story line aimed at the audience in mind.
