For my audio assignment #1, I decided to create a commercial for Webkinz since our radio show group is talking about childhood memories! I looked up the Webkinz commercial and wrote down the transcript and then used Audacity to record me saying the lines and then I added some background music. It was really hard to find music that was free but also music that fit the commerical. The one I chose was from freesound.org and was called Happy Background Music and the credit goes to Migfus20.
I decided to do a Webkinz commerical because I loved Webkinz growing up! I used to have twenty-two Webkinz… I know that’s crazy. I still remember my first one, she was a white poodle and her name was Lady. I remember sometimes at school I would get to play on the computers during free time and it was so much fun. I loved going to Hallmark to pick out a new Webkinz… ugh so much fun. I would always ask for them for my birthday… I guess people listened to me since I ended up with so many!
Here is my commercial that may go into our radio show for next week. I noticed that at some points the audio gets quieter in the middle (not sure why), but if we end up using my audio for one of the three commercials, I will be sure to make it more balanced.
