Audio project

For this audio project, I wanted to do something that would be engaging and kind of silly. I kept finding myself thinking of the project as a film which wasn’t working out for the style I was going for. I ended up wanting to lean towards more of a podcast or reality tv show. But then it ended up being an emotional commercial that you would see for medication. The main Idea for the final result is: Rebecca’s 7 step roade to true happiness is getting featured on a late night/ news reality tv show and they play her commercial about a woman who was emotionally unstable. The commercial is definitely one that you would see advertising medication where it has that corny yet emotional documentary touch. This 7 step program really does change lives. 

For the audio in effects and music, I had to resist not just throwing in sound effects for emotions of the characters. That is something I would have totally done if it were film. So I ended up leaning towards the emotions of the listener and using that as a way to make what Rebecca was talking about more upbeat and engaging. Even though what she was saying was kinda nonsense. Then also to have the funny contrast of the emotional story about the mom and then back to Rebecca being like “ Yeaaaah that was me dudes!”. 

It was a very fun project, it reminded  me of how much I actually enjoy editing.

Beverly Donofrio grew up working on a rough start. She became pregnant before she graduated high school and eventually dropped out.
later at age 24, in the midst of being a single mom she decided to go to college deciding writing was the way to go. she struggled a lot and even flunked her thesis that ended up being the first 120 pages of “Riding in cars with boys.” which has cutely become: “No longer Riding in Cars with Boys. I upgraded to riding with my dog.”(she makes note) she got her first big hit when publishing a short story to a magazine. she found financial success but still struggled with depression and major trauma that picked her up out of her life. she found the monastery and helped her heal into the person and writer she is today.

All through school, Andrew was interested in both medicine and art. He decided going into medicine was the more sensible option because it would please his parents. He was working as an orderly when he got in a terrible car accident and had a near-death experience. After his recovery, he reevaluated his life and realized that art was his true passion. A professor recommended that he combine his love of science and art and become a conservator. He is now hailed as one of the best, if not the best, conservators in the U.S. He has treated the Liberty Bell and the inkwell from signing of the Declaration of Independence. After his near-death experience, says the most important thing is spending your time well, doing what makes you happy.

Roadtrip Nation Blog: Danielle Feinberg

“We use math, science and code to create these amazing worlds. We use storytelling and art to bring them to life. It’s this interweaving of art and science that elevates the world to a place of wonder, a place with soul, a place we can believe in, a place where the things you imagine can become real – – and a world where a girl suddenly realizes not only is she a scientist, but also an artist.” – Danielle Feinberg

One sheet, two-sheet, three sheets or four…some use less and some use more. What am I?   

What has arms and legs, but no head?

What can’t be burned in a fire nor drowned in water?

I have a big mouth and I’m quite a load. I’m not gossip, but I get involved in everyone’s dirty business. What am I?

Stepping out? Wear me first! I’ll protect your feet from the worst.

Tall and strong, I stay outside. The sun, the rain, they’re by my side. I give birds homes and help you breathe. I even give you fruit to eat.

Here I come and there I go. I move really fast, anywhere I go. That’s why you take me when you’re in a hurry. When I zoom by, I might look blurry.

Kick up your feet, if you will. I’ll keep you company through Netflix and chill. Though you might not notice, I’m always here, to hold your zines, your snacks, and beer.

You say we’re pals, that we’re best friends. But only until the morning ends. You say I give you fuel for the day. And when we’re done, you’re gone away.  

Don’t frown at me, I made it clear. Won’t make a difference if you’re near. Just stand in front and I’ll show you exactly how the world will know you.
