First, for 3.5 stars I did this assignment to create an advertisement for our group’s radio show!
Since our show will be a news show, it will make sense for us to have many commercials. This commercial is one advertising a vampire repellent, professing how effective and wonderful the product is! The reason I chose this particular topic is because it will relate to one of our upcoming news stories about my character being discovered as a vampire living among us, which would obviously cause uproar in the community. So people would be in need of a product like this one! I went for a slightly comedic and upbeat tone in this one, and I had a lot of fun writing the script for it, especially since it’s a fake product and I can claim it does whatever I want it to do (it’s up to you whether you think it’s actually effective or not). I like how this one turned out and I can’t wait to use it on our news show on the DS106 radio!
My approach to making this, was to first write a script and practice reciting it, then recording my voice over of the commercial. I used Audacity to add some copyright free upbeat music to the commercial. Surprisingly, this time I found it easy to use Audacity now that I’ve practiced, however, very difficult to find copyright free music that would be appropriate for my commercial!
