Out of all honesty, I was VERY excited to find out that part of our assignment was to create a commercial for our blogs. I immediately dug up my journalism roots and was ready to put the key to the test! To be quite frank, I had mixed emotions about this assignment because for one, I was excited knowing that I could record my voice and put music behind it but at the same time, I sometimes found myself getting frustrated trying to figure out everything. For example, when I first opened Garageband, I was absolutely trying to figure out where to begin. I was all over the place trying to familiarize myself with the software. I already knew the idea that I wanted to portray and I was ready to make my vision come to life. It took me awhile to navigate around and get a feel of Garageband. My whole idea was obviously a reggae theme for my commercial but I’ll leave the rest up to you to check out 🙂

I was determined that night to figure out how to put everything together so like I always do, I played around with the website until I figured out what goes where, and what the other buttons do. Successfully, I was able to get what I wanted and was very happy with how my product came out in the end. Getting the music files onto my computer was not hard at all but just trying to merge and put everything together was the hard part. After watching a couple of Youtube videos showing me how to use Garageband, I got the hang of it. I know my piece is not perfect but I am proud of how far I came with it. I encourage you all to give it a listen. I’ve never been this excited in my life to have gotten to do something like this so please understand that the excitement is TRULY real!

    Hi Melissa!

    I loved the commercial. The vibe was great, and I loved your narration. My only suggestion would be to lower the music bed just a bit. I felt like at times your audio could have been a little clearer if the music volume was a little bit lower. I am looking forward to the next post!

    I really liked your commercial! I thought it really fit in well with the whole attitude of your blog and it made sense. If you lowered your music bed a little bit, your voice could have been heard a bit more, but regardless it felt clean and really relatable to your site!

    Hey Melissa,

    Loved the songs you used. Could you be loved is the ultimate jam. I think overall you did an awesome job. The two songs blended very well. I guess the only suggestion I maybe would give is to make it a tad shorter. But overall really good job!

    Great work on your commercial Melissa, I think the songs you picked flow into each other well and your transition sounds good. The only thing I can suggest is to add some inflection to your diction so the listener can get into what you’re saying.
