academic side of film. Typical content – Niche Market, Reviews Image – If featuring a specific film it will have the main

character on the cover, if it’s an issue featuring the more technical aspects it will feature an image relating to the subject. For example, the issue with the headline “Seeing the light”, we see a shot taken from behind the scenes so we can see the lighting system

Masthead – “Sight & Sound”, shows it is more of a technical magazine

Tag Line – “The international film magazine”, it is international so it is big and seems successful
