Deconstructing of two soap adverts Waterloo road and Top Boy

Task 1
In this task I will be researching the structures and techniques of television advertisement. I will be talking about the key structures and characterise of the product. Also how they attract the audience by using different media techniques. The advert choice I have chosen for this task is waterloo road which has been TV series for a very long time, and has built a reputation for being a really goon TV series.
Waterloo Road
Waterloo road is a British television drama series that is based in the north of London near Manchester in Rochdale, England. It was first broadcasted on the 9th March 2006 on BBC one. It is very troubled school with so many different things happening within the school or outside of the school. The series focuses on the lives of the school teachers and students and confronts social issues like extramarital affairs, abortions, divorce, child abuse, and suicide. I will be deconstructing the last advert for waterloo road with Kyle stack.

Waterloo road endorses celebrity endorsement this is when they use celebrities to try and boost there ratings and waterloo road did this by using Britain’s got talent winner George Sampson. By adding this one celebrity the producers of waterloo road knew that it would boots their ratings and gain more of an audience but the audience will be people who know George Sampson from BGT (Britain got talent). This also helps the celebrity boast their status in life because before George Sampson appeared on waterloo road he wasn’t doing much to boats his career so the chance for him to become an actor to help boost his career.

The target audience for this drama series was initially for teenagers from the age of 14-18, but due to it becoming such a huge drama series the audience stretches out to adults mid 20s or early 30s. The reason why the target audience is aimed to teenagers is because of the school life that the characters are living either in or out of school and teenager can relate to a certain character because they might consider themselves to be the same as the character hence the viewer making that certain character there favorite because they relate to them the most. This can also be linked with personal identify
Waterloo road starts at 8pm this is in the peak time hours Peak time is when shows or programmers have to be shown at a certain time due to the age restriction.

In waterloo road there isn’t really any stereotyping, the only stereotype is that due to the schools new location (Scotland) you wouldn’t see a lot of black people in the school as the school is generally all white. So that would one of the stereotypes in the series. Another stereotype could be that the teens who are poor would underachieve in the education part and also have a tough life outside of school. The poor teens in waterloo road can be portrayed as bad
The music waterloo road was very intense and hyper as it matches the character in the advert, as they are all angry and mad so the music goes well with the advert. It makes it the viewers want to watch the advert more because of what they are seeing and the music, which backs it up.

There are many different types of transition; there are cuts, fades, mix, dissolve and many more. But the one used in this advert by waterloo is cut to because after when one scenes is done they cut straight too a different one and some scenes where inside and some where outside so when the scene was inside and then goes straight to a scene outside that’s a clear indication that that scene was a cut to.
Waterloo road has been on TV for a few years now since 2006 and the most recent series just ended this year so it has been on air for 5 years. This is mostly due to the viewers who love the series and watch it every week when it is on. So it has made a huge impact on their lives because this can be something that they look forward when they have a tough day at work or school this is called diversion.

Top Boy
Top boy is again another British drama series it was first broadcasted on channel 4 on the 31 October to the 3 November 2011. It is set on a fictional summerhouse housing estate in Hackney the series involves a group of people who live in summerhouse dealing drugs and gang violence. The series also show you peoples live so its not focusing on the main character you get to see how other people live and how the go about their daily lives in summerhouse. I will be deconstructing the Toy boy first series advert which got the TV series off and running.

Top boy also includes many celebrities from the like of Bashy, Kano, and Scorcher these celebrities are very well known by teenage due to them being rappers in the UK. Comparing the celebrity endorsement to Waterloo road I would say that Top boy would gain more of an audience because they have more than one celebrity and it’s a higher chance that people will know the celebrities in Top boy then the celebrity in Waterloo road.
Top boys target audience will be aim towards again teenagers 16+ and adults 20+. The series shows life in East London and how growing up in a rough areas can be hard and how young teens are fed into drugs and gangs, also teenagers can relate to Top boy because there are a few character in the series that are young and are involved in drugs so teenagers who do this in their daily life can relate to that character because they know how it feels to be apart you don’t want to be in and again this can be linked with personal identify.
The showing of top boy is in the peak time hours so between 6pm-10:30pm due to the language they use and violence. Shows after 9pm are classified as ‘watershed’ this will restrict children from watching my or another series and seeing content which could have a bad effect on them, but this time children will be going to sleep and the adults will just be coming home from work so it is an ideal time for them. The series is mainly aimed towards the working and middle class.

The stereotype in Toy boy is typical has they have the main characters as young black men and women living in a run down estate, selling drugs and involved with gangs warfare. This is a stereotype because due to the series being based in East London people will think instantly think that young black men will be involved in drugs and gangs in that area just due to the fact that the series is showing that. But when in fact some of the most notorious gangs in East London are ran by white people.

The music for Top boy is very up-tempo and the advert gives you an in sight into what the series drama is about. There is also a voiceover along with the music, so as you are listening to the music you also have to listen to the voice over which gives you hints on the series and what it about and why people do things. Whereas compared to waterloo road the music is also fast and up- tempo but there is no voiceover so every character you see have a line to say so you kind of get a in sight to what their story maybe be about.

The transition in Top boy vary from many different types like, cuts, fade etc.. The transitions in the advert. The advert has a slow tempo to it so it pin point some of the most interesting points of the series like for the first part you will see the main character standing and a voiceover in the back ground, then it cuts to a group of boys (black) this will grab attention of the views because they would think it is a gang. Then immediately after you see drugs and money. Whereas compared to waterloo road the transition are quick and simple from one scene to another and fast temp all with different character so you know their story and who they are.

The impact for top boy has grew by far the most out of any other TV series. It is a recent TV series only having come out in 2011 and has gathered a huge fan base in 2 years. Mostly likely due to people can relate their normal lives to some of the characters in the series this is called personal relationship. Compared to waterloo road you can also compare the way you live outside of school to a character or you can compare your school life to the same character. Either way compared to Toy boy a life style in school is completely different to the life style people live in Toy boy. So that is why if you watch both soaps you can see two aspects of life school life and gang life.

What makes a good soap opera?
A Soap opera is a television show that goes on air over a certain period of time depending on how successful it is. They usually have a story line and the whole series or show revolves around the story line or series. Soap are always based on a theme that is usually the most influencing factor for it success. But there are however, various other factors on which the success of a soap opera.

The theme must be something interesting and unique. It doesn’t always have to relate to human life or social society but It should always be something unique, if not them it has to be interesting to keep the viewers engaged and active. One successful formula for a theme could be family life which some soap often base their series on. Other usefully theme can be personal identify, personal relationship, diversion and some many other factors .

Although a good theme is he basis of a good soap opera, sometimes a good theme may not always be the successful area. For instance a good theme may be irrelevant but if it is not directed well. There are many examples of shows, which have good themes but are not really successful. For example there are a lot of TV series being shown today and only a few are chosen by the audience and get watched week in and week out. A good example of a successful soap opera is Eastenders it has been aired since the first episodes started on the 5th of February 1985 till this present day and has won multiple awards It has been nominated for a variety of different awards including 15 British Academy Television Awards (eight wins), 10 Royal Television Society Programme Awards (four wins), 18 Television and Radio Industries Club (TRIC) Awards (12 wins) and 243 British Soap Awards (69 wins).

Another important aspect of a good or in other words a successful soap opera is its actors. Soaps may not always need big names stars to make it, into the big time. What all soap needs is a good, skilled actors who can tell the story and people start to get hooked on that particular actor. An example for this can be the Eastenders cast before the series started in the late 80s no one really knew the actors. But due to their good acting people started to recognize who they are and eventually begin to like them.

Lastly an important factor in a good or successful soap opera is its relevance to time. Because if it was a major hit back when it started that doesn’t mean it will be a major hit in this day of age due to the likes of other soaps and better soaps coming out. So it may not enjoy the same success. If they want to be a success them the theme of the soap must be unique, interesting and keeping with the time of today. The difference between a good or successful soap opera can be again referred to Eastenders, Eastenders is a very successful soap opera just due to the fact that’s its won so many awards and been one of the longest aired soap opera in Britain. A good soap opera can be Hollyoaks they are not as successfully as Eastenders and don’t get many viewers like Eastenders do so there for they are a good soap opera just because they are not on Eastenders caliber yet.
So overall what make a good soap opera is not just about the theme or storyline. If it is pointed in the right direction as in the director is good and the actors are good then the soap opera will have a good chance of being a success because they all (director and actors) play a major factor that can make a soap opera good and successful for many years.…...

...suit, helmet and all, slung in a very corpse-like manner atop the piece of furniture (perhaps a refigerator?) adjacent to the corner. Completing the scene, Dave has a McDonald's bag and drink at his side, and sandwich in hand. Indeed, Dave immediately chows down on the sandwich, at which point the shot changes to a closeup of the fish, which turns half its body towards the camera (which is what these wall-mounted singing fish do, after all), and begins singing: In case you didn't catch that, the wall-fish then repeats the line as Dave just sits there kind of grooving along with the music, even chewing in rhythm to it. He does not appear at all surprised, and his expression could only be described as smug and self-satisfied. We have, in the two quick shots of Dave during this fish-chorus, a point of view from the direction the fish would be looking, and now we can see that Dave is sitting on the end of a workout bench, with a barbell on the equipment's rack behind him, and a cabinet behind that topped by a stereo. As the fish finishes repeating the chorus, another bearded guy enters the scene -- I call this one Bob, because he looks like a Bob (although he bears a passing resemblence, as well, to Graham Chapman as he appeared in Monty Python's Life of Brian). Bob is tall and looks solid enough, but much less burly than Dave. He has sandy brown hair and an everyman's plaid shirt, and is carrying a fairly sizable drill which he holds up as he enters with the unmistakeable body......

Advert and Gender

...Introduction: Advertising & Gender The adverts are carefully crafted bundles of images, frequently designed to associate the product with feelings of pleasure stemming from fantasies and anxieties (Craig 1997). Advertising can also be defined as a paid for mass-media communication, and a means of managing and controlling the consumer markets at the least cost (Brierley 1995). It is clear that advertisers seem quite willing to manipulate these fantasies and exploit our gender identities to sell products. Gender is a social construct, a dichotomy that exists in all societies (Costa, 1994). It is used to describe the socially constructed differences between men and women, referring not only to individual identity and personality, but also at the symbolic level, to cultural ideals and stereotypes of masculinity and femininity and, at the structural level, to the sexual division of labour in institutions and organisations (Online Dictionary of the Social Sciences). The definition of gender encompasses a great deal. Temperament, abilities and skills, activities and behaviours, ideal types and accepted and unacceptable deviations from the ideal, sensuality and culture based essence of what it means to be male or female, are all part of the gender constructs of a given society. Therefore, marketers perform their activities differently when their targets are male than they do when the targets are female, and consumers’ responses often differ on the basis of gender. ......

Napoleon and the Battle of Waterloo

...the Battle of Waterloo Napoleon’s last battle, the infamous Battle of Waterloo, was fought on Sunday 18 June 1815 near Waterloo in present-day Belgium. Ithappened when a French army under the command of Napoleon was defeated by the united armies of the Seventh Coalition, one an Anglo-Allied army under the command of the Duke of Wellington, and the other a Prussian army under the command of Gebhard von Blücher. Many people say that the Battle of Waterloo was the culminating battle of the Waterloo Campaign and Napoleon's last battle ever. When he was defeated at Waterloo, he lost his title as Emperor. Waterloo itself is just a small town a few miles south of Brussels, Belgium. It's an inconspicuous town, with a church, some inns, and a few homes and old stone farmhouses with lots of open fields. The Battle of Waterloo, as it has come to be known, is always included on lists of battles that changed the course of history. Napoleon was considered one of the greatest generals ever, yet he is often defined by this one terrific loss at the end of his career. The word has entered our language: when someone has met their Waterloo, it means they’ve been finally defeated. The Battle of Waterloo began with Napoleon being declared an outlaw by the Congress of Vienna. They did not like Napoleon because he had declared himself emperor. Also, he was marching on Paris, in his bid to solidify his role as Emperor. Waterloo, it turned out, was not only a strategic point on the road to Paris,......

The Road

...novel, The Road, we are met with the nameless characters, known as a father and his young son, who travel and attempt to survive post apocalyptic Earth. They set out to the south west in hopes to find people just like themselves, who are still morally correct in a world full of cannibalistic savages. The father shows the boy how to survive through making fires, dispersing their daily intake of food, sleeping in various locations, and other ways just to be safe and healthy. The father teaches him that they are the few morally correct people still left on Earth, as he wishes to teach his son as much as he can, before the father’s time runs out. The boy is seen as a God-like figure to his father as he is a beacon of light in a world full of darkness, the hope of the future, due to his correct moralities, as this reflects onto the father in various situations through the novel. It is quite notable that though the father plays an influential figure for the boy to look up to, the boy also is able to praise teachings upon his father to restore faith in himself. The bond between the father and son is one of the learning, as the father finds himself learning from his son. To start with the case of the son teaching his father, the two spot a young old man ahead of them on the road, to which the young boy insists on helping him, going against his father’s wishes. The first encountering with the old man between the two starts when the son bends down the sitting old man in the road,......

...having sexual diseases and this is a very good example… The advert that I am going to describe and evaluate is showing how bad decisions may influence you and others in society (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Eh9XwSgCigc). At the first few seconds of this advertisement you can see an old, ugly man who just robs a bank. He exits the building with an AK-47, a bag with lots of money and bullets on his shoulder. He yells “I did it” and starts shooting in the air. You can see blood on his face that meaning that he just murdered someone in there. Furthermore he is laughing really loud like a baby that just robed a candy shop. Next moment advertisement stops and you can see that authors put age of a murderer on screen “age: 73”… Next picture is from a memory of the same man. The craziest moment of this advert is in the scene where you can observe this man breaking the door into a random house. He looks much younger than he was before. Mother and daughter were watching television and now they are terrified and screaming in fear. The criminal is carrying a knife and saying to them to be quite so neighbours won’t call police. From this advert you can notice that this rapist has a mole under his right eye so you can definitely say it is same person. One more time producers showing us his age “age: 46”… Riding bikes in the school was the best entertainment for everyone especially for this guy. Third scene is where a few boys are ridding theirs bikes really quickly from......

...regulation should be amended; it aims to present an idea that these kinds of commercials can still be or can be even more effective if the models or artists advertising the beverage will portray the act of drinking the liquid without it being irresponsible. This paper will not promote drinking, excessive or not, of such products but only try to convey a different perspective of the updated and practiced regulation. Though advertising covers television, radio, print and online promotions, I would like to focus particularly on TV advertisements, as this is where my stand applies. II. BODY Most commercials show their models trying out the products they are endorsing like snacks and facial wash or even testifying the products’ effectiveness like soap, shampoo and dish washing liquid. These kinds of advertisements, even though sometimes may seem exaggerated, help the audience, viewer, consumer, or the target market to sort of experience the product. Yes, it is not like product sampling where we can try the product out first hand but it gives us a glimpse of what it can offer us. I am not an avid fan of drinking – nor do I encourage my family, friends and acquaintances to do so – but looking at it objectively, in terms of advertising, it would make sense if the endorsers take a sip of the alcoholic beverages. It is a drink; therefore, they should drink it, in a moderate way, of course. Most alcoholic beverages I have seen only portray the sex appeal of the female model or a......

Comparing Two Adverts

...Comparing two adverts   This essay will be about two adverts which I will be comparing, these adverts are; Dominoes; Oven Baked Subs! And Ribeana; drink!   The Dominoes advert had a very effective tagline because it was short and snappy, however the Ribeana drink tag line was also quite catchy and it suits the product well.   The colour which have been used in the Ribena advert are well suited for the drink; because the colours are nice natural colours, light colours which give off the soft, calm, relaxing effect that Ribena may have one you. The font is nice and large so it stands out and it is eye catching. On the other hand the colours on the Dominoes advert are very bright, and bold. It is very eye catching and colourful, and it is very distinctive, so it stands out and is recognisable, and the font is very large too, which makes it stand out even more!   The graphics on the adverts are both very big, and eye catching; so they attract the attention of customers. Also on the Dominoes advert there are three big pictures of three different lunch Subs, which can instantly make any mouth water. Saying that, the Ribena advert is also persuasive, because there is a natural background, which automatically gives of the impression that Ribeana is natural; the ingredients are natural and healthy and a good drink   I think the target audience, and who the advert appeals to for the Dominoes advert are people who, would be out, possibly at work on a lunch break and are going......

...The sun inched through the green and ivory curtains and unmasked the layers of dust that floated around the room. It seemed like so many years ago. It was sometime in the summer between the hot months of June and July; the last day of a weeks vacation. I sit, peeling an orange with a knife, so as not to break my just painted red-satin nails, feet propped up on the table, un-shoed and sock-less. I notice the lime-green smoothie mixer that came complimentary with the hotel room. I guess that it had to be from Target and remember that I need to buy a new razor and shampoo and conditioner before we leave. Oh and soap. Definitely need more soap. I didn’t even want to think about soap right now. I want to go now but know that I really shouldn’t leave Katelyn alone despite everything. She is sleeping, I like to remember her that way that morning, sleeping like that. I try never to forget her curls and her eyelashes as I watch her sleeping on the bed; her round Jackie Kennedy sunglasses and my Audrey Hepburn heels that were thrown off the bed from the night before. I want to remember her this way. Before she goes back to her life. Her life without me. Her married life. Her life that began again last night. I try to remember her this way.

Define Difference and Provide Two Examples of This on City Road Cardiff

...In your own words define difference and provide two examples of this on City Road I would define difference as the thing that makes one thing not the same as the other, something that sets a person apart from the next. A big difference observed on City Road is that between those that are wealthy and those that are not, the wealthier have many more choices than those that are less well off. From the shops they use, the food they purchase to leisure facilities. The food bank is a great example, as benefit delays and debt mean that whenever they are forced to use it, they have little to no choice, whereas the wealthier people in the community make lifestyle choices, for example the farmers market, the taste buds café (open university 2015) Another example of difference in City Road is why do people visit the road? some come to work there for example shop workers, rubbish collectors, road sweepers, office workers, and in their own way they keep the road running (open university 2015) others come to City road for leisure purposes, the municipal club, the pool hall to interact with others in their community, others come to run errands, shopping paying bills…So they all come to City Road for different reasons (Open University 2015). These 2 examples of difference that I have chosen are vitally important to illustrate that the diversity of the community is catered for by the street and as time passes, the street changes (Blakely, Staples 2014). ...

Adverts

...GROUP OF ADVERTS The group of advertisements I have identified on television is the sensodyne toothpaste and Aqua fresh. They are both toothpastes which are advertised mostly on television and they differ in the way they are both aired. Aqua fresh toothpaste is highlighted as the only toothpaste that a family will need and they endorse in a way that all people with families should use Aqua fresh toothpaste. Sensodyne is toothpaste for sensitive teeth and it is dentist recommended and it is approved by the Kenya Dental Association. Both advertisements run every day on television and every company is trying hard to win consumers interest in terms of their product consumption. As much as it is healthy for people to brush their teeth with toothpaste, the way these products are advertised brings controversy in the society. People have different test and preference when it comes to sensitive products like toothpaste. Aqua fresh advertisement uses a family to endorse its product. The message accompanied by this product is; “what every family needs.” They portray their product to be the best for every family and they encourage parents to buy Aqua fresh toothpaste for r their families. Sensodyne toothpaste is for sensitive teeth and dentist recommended. Experts who are doctors are used in endorsing sensodyne toothpaste. The message that makes people think it’s the best toothpaste is where they say that it is recommended by the Kenya Dental Association. Many people are......
