Woo boy, this has been a week. It was a tad stressful, won’t lie to you guys.
I really, really like how my audio assignments turned out. Especially the intro I recorded for the radio show. I think I’m really getting used to audacity. I have all the basic features figured out. Now I can start really experimenting and playing around with it.
For the next assignment, I chose to do a product commercial. I really wanted to tie in my group’s radio show theme, so I advertised a hat that Sam (Molly Ringwald) wore in Sixteen Candles. I think during the project, I was experimenting with my “announcer,” voice. Not sure if I have it down quite yet.
Lastly, I did a Guess That Movie, where I could only describe a movie with sounds. Again, I incorporated the theme of my group’s radio show and turned it into a little game show you might hear on air. I honestly am not much of a fan of this assignment. I really don’t like the sounds I chose and had a hard time finding better ones. I do, however, think I’m getting the hang being a radio announcer.
My promo poster is pretty tubular if I do say so myself. I like it quite a bit, and while there are areas I would change, I don’t think it’s bad for a first try. Although again, I think I like my teammate Sophia’s promo poster a bit better. I just love the creativity with it!
Radio Show Week One has definitely been interesting. It was challenging, but I’ve had fun. I don’t really know what to expect for next week, so I’m hoping to get started on that soon.
Lastly, we have my daily creates. I am sad to say that, due to a hectic week, I forgot to do one.
For my first one, I found a billboard that was advertising a new season of Law and Order. I chose it for many reasons, the first being that I love that show and any other crime shows like it. That being said, I also chose it because it was crazy creative.
My second daily create, was Bubbly by Colbie Caillat. It’s a super nostalgic song for me. My parents used to sing it all the time to each other. They still do. I remember loving when that song came on. It was fun to watch them sing and dance together. Plus, it’s just an awesome song.
Alright. I think that’s it for this week. Tune in next week for more!
