When we investigate a media text, a really good place to start is to look at ‘The Making Of’ it. When we do this we discover how the text was constructed and what code and conventions were employed to build the text. You learn how long it took, what elements were included and why and what components were deleted in the editing process. We also discover what jobs it took to make the media text. This supports our learning by linking our strengths with potential jobs within the media industry.
