On Monday night I listened to the “House of Noir” radio show. It was great. What a wonderful premise to have it be a call in show. It got harsh at times, but I think that Noir show’s seem to be that way. I really enjoyed listening to it. Next I listened to the show I helped with “Noir We There Yet?” I am really proud of how it turned out. On Thursday I listened to “Noir Not the Father” the imagery was great and the crowd sounds enhanced the whole story. It was a great show. Next I listened to “Noir Talk” , this one was a very different kind of story from the others. It was very mysterious and left the listener with a lot of questions. I like the intrigue.
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.
I started Monday wondering if I would be able to find a Radio Show Team. This was very stressful because I only really know one person in the class, Barbara Hall, so we got together and started working on adding more members to our team. The first thing we did was send a Tweet to Spencer Scott, he is awesome and has helped both of us do a lot of projects. He had a friend he had already agreed to team up with so that is when we met Cody Walker. He is very friendly and has lots of great ideas. Lastly was Emily Bostaph, she is a quirky and seems like a really fun person to work with. We started talking about our characters and it was weird, its like we planned this. Mine is Isabelle, she is a sleuth. Spencer’s character, Donnie, is a reporter, so far so good. Barbara’s character, George, is a Mob Boss. Cody’s character is a criminal, it was getting even better. But, what were we missing? A Femme Fatale, we really needed one for a good Noir story and guess what Emily’s character, Cecilia, is. Perfect. So many ideas going through our heads now. This is practically writing itself. We have met a few times on Google Doc’s and brainstormed and split up the work. Right now we are planning on doing a show very much like “Elliott in the Morning”. I’m very excited about our progress. With this amazing team this is going to be a great project.
I tried to make a poster that would represent our radio show. I hope my teammates like it. It was fun to do. I searched for the perfect picture and then put it together using PowerPoint.
