The Competition

This post is for me to take a bit to reflect on one of the radio shows done by another group, a.k.a the competition. I listened to Back to the 80’s Radio Show by the DS106 Ladies. I always like to start with positives when it comes to reflecting and critiquing someone else’s work, so…

Weekly Summary 8

This was a rather short week, at least when it comes to the number of assignments to complete. The focus was heavily on working on the group radio show and getting it completed. That said, it was a nice change of pace spending so much time working with the other students. We did a great…

Weekly Summary 7

The main focus of this week was very clearly placed on setting up and beginning work for our group radio show. It was a little slow starting, because most of us didn’t know each other, but it ended up going really well and was a lot more fun than I expected. I’m really looking forward…

Are You a Cool Kid?

In a very productive edition of audio assignments, I was instructed to make a radio commercial for an 80’s product. This actually worked out perfectly because for my upcoming group radio show assignment, we need to have commercials, so this gave me an opportunity to multipurpose my work to achieve two goals. For some reason…

Tongue Twister CHAMP

In yet another edition of audio assignment, I was tasked to become the tongue twister champion of the world. Not really, but it may as well have been that with how difficult it is for me to get through a tongue twister even once. The goal was to quickly say a tongue twister and and…

Ultimate Workout Mix!

For today’s edition of audio assignments, I was tasked with making a mix tape. It seemed like a fun thing to do, because with all the new software and platforms out these days like pandora and spotify, I haven’t sat down and made my own mix tape or playlist in years. As more of a…

Optimal Bumper Accessory

I’m not quite sure why, but when I saw the example of a bumper sticker for an option for a design project I was immediately set on that as my final option. Maybe it’s because bumper stickers, while still around a bit, seem like more a relic of the past to go along with the…

Lets Get This Show On The Road

We started our group assignment strong by figuring out a time early in the week for all of us to meet up. Tuesday we all got together in a reserved room in the HCC on UMW campus to get our plans on track. After introducing ourselves, we got down to business. The main goal was…

Weekly Summary 5

The theme of audio related assignments led to a recurring theme in completion that was pretty surprising to me, difficulty starting. With almost every assignment this week, the first step was the most difficult/time consuming part. Maybe this style of work doesn’t match my style of creativity, or maybe it is just a coincidence. Either…

Death from Above

In an attempt to get better at audio storytelling I dug deep to tell a story using only noises, instead of verbal communication. This one for me was by far the most difficult assignment of the week, but it ended up being fun once I started piecing it all together. With everything else being so…
