This assignments instructions were:
Create a 30-45 second radio commercial for a product from the 80’s. Add in some background music and/or sound effects to make it sound like a real radio commercial.
For this assignment, I created a commercial for the upcoming radio show titled Messy March. The reason I chose to make my commercial about carpet cleaner, is because as a dog owner, I know how much they can take a toll on both your carpet and your allergies. Simply vacuuming is never enough to provide my nose with the relief it is always looking for, so I was inspired to spread some free promo about this awesome product!
I used many different sounds from this site. I chose 3 different sounds of sneezing, several animal noises, and the background music I chose was also from this website. I used audacity for first record myself speaking all parts of the commercial. I edited this recording to sound better by adjusting sound levels, and background noise. Then, after downloading and importing all of my sound clips, I put them in between my speaking parts where they belonged. I finished off this assignment by fading some music in and then having it fade out in the end.
