For this assignment, I wanted to create a commercial that would work with my group’s radio show idea. Our idea was to talk about products, trends, and characters that made an impact at the time. So to create a commercial for straw fedora hats like the one Sam (Molly Ringwald) wore in Sixteen Candles.
When I was creating the scripts, I tried to pepper in some 80s slang, but it was much harder than I thought. It all sounds very forced so I’ll have to work on that.
One aspect I do like is that I found some cool, jazzy music that had an 80s vibe and I used it for the intro.
Overall, I like how it turned out. I do think there’s room for improvement, but I’m not too stressed about it. It was my first try and I think it’s pretty good for a first try!
