I decided to work with George Bozzo (Barbara Hall) on the final unit project. I believe we can create a great Agency and we have the ability to work together closely and I think that will help. We think a lot a like and I think we can do an excellent job on this assignment.
This is a 5 star assignment to create a Public Service Announcement. I used the emergency broadcast sounds that I downloaded from Freesound.org and I recorded the audio myself. I used a fellow character in DS106 (George Bozzo) a known mobster and wanted to warn everyone about him. I used Movie Maker to make this. I learned a lot because getting the sound where I wanted it was a little difficult at first.
This 5 star assignment was to put together a Montage of a person special to me. Isabelle’s favorite author is Agatha Christie so that is who I did the montage on. I used PowerPoint to put it together. I did research on Agatha Christie in order to make it work. Here is my video.
Here is my interview with the Agency. I don’ t like doing interviews but here it is. I used my tablet to record my my part and I used Movie Maker to put all the parts together. I enjoyed doing this. I answered 2 questions from every interviewer. I hope my answers help define who I am.
I picked this 4.5 star assignment and I did in on the character of George Bozo, he is Barbara Hall’s 1940’s character. I read everything I could about George and I made a PowerPoint and converted it to a WMV file so that I could post it on YouTube. I picked a song that I thought fit him. I like how it turned out.
This was a 3 star design assignment. In this assignment I decided to have my 1940’s character send a valentines day card to another character from the “Noir We There Yet?” radio show. I found a picture on Google images that I liked, then I put it on PowerPoint and wrote on it. I changed the words to the common “Roses are Red” poem and just had fun with it. I don’t really know if there are blue fedoras, but it worked in the card. Here is my assignment.
This is 2 Star writing assignment was to explain my 1940’s characters name. This was easy to do, her name just came to me. Here is my explanation.
What’s in a name?
I chose the name, Isabelle “Red” McIntosh for odd reasons. My 1940’s character is a librarian who moonlights as a detective/writer. I love the name Isabelle, but then I decided that if she was going to be a detective she needed a cool nick name. Red came to mind because that was a moniker I always liked. The reason I used McIntosh is because it is my favorite apple. All this made it really easy to come up with a logo for her detective agency, Red’s Investigations. I think the name fits the character very well and I think it fits her. I have included her logo to show how well it works.
Here is a 3 point design Assignment. I created an invoice for my character (Isabelle McIntosh’s) detective agency. I billed Noir We There Yet? Radio for the interview I did with George Bozo. I gave it a very low invoice number because I am not very proficient at interviewing yet. Here is my invoice.
I had a hard time converting a word document to something I could put on Flickr. I tried turning it into other kinds of documents, but nothing seemed to work. I googled it and found the correct directions. I created the invoice in Microsoft Word and used the Snipping tool to turn the document into a JPG, then I posted it on Flickr.
I did this 3 Star Project for the radio show. It was fun. It was my first attempt at a commercial and I think it came out good. A little corney but it was fun. My husband and I did the audio part and I put it together using audacity and I used an ad I created during design week to decorate it. I downloaded the sounds from freesound.com even the guitar. I hope it makes you want a Grape Nehi.
