One way that we thought we could do this is by using a theme that runs throughout all three of the products. Obviously with them been for very different media formats they are each going to have their own conventions and major differences between them all. There are, however, ways in which we have linked them together to make them into a combined package.
The theme that we eventually decided on to include in each product is the gaming aspect. The protagonist gaming is a major part and idea in our music video as it is how we really show his isolation and desire to be more popular and powerful; the gaming world is his ideal world and his escape from reality. As it is a major theme in our video it seems an appropriate way to link the three products together and this can be seen on the front cover of our digipak with the avatar and background. This is a screenshot from the game Mass Effect which most of our gaming footage is from.

Isolation is another theme that can be linked to both the video and the digipak. The image shows a large open space with nobody in sight except for our protagonist on the back cover and the avatar on the front. This shows the theme of isolation that is also a major part of our video, along with the gaming aspect in the Narrative.
A very different way in which the two link as a package doesn't relate to what can be seen in the video but just to the video itself. On the front cover of the digipak is a sticker advertising what can be seen inside the digipak including stating that the music video comes as part of this video. This shows a direct link between the two products on the front cover of our digipak.
