With Out a Hitch

admin 2 comments

This week we completed our radio show. It in my opinion it went off with out a hitch. I also think nick did a good job putting it all together. My part in all of this was to provide the interviews. I also took part in the discussions on the meaning of the song “HOTEL CALIFORNIA” by the Eagles. Though we never came to an agreement on the song, We concluded had to be about being trapped in one way or another. 

This week we also had a few discussions about each others work and also did some more planing in the completion of our project.

Lastly I would like to speak about How I think this assignment can be improved. It would be a much better assignment if the radio show was done live. I think That it would be a culmination of a lot of skills learned in the digital media program up to this point. I think by now most students would have an understanding of editing soft-ware. It seems to me at this point Most soft-ware for editing sound video or images works on all the same basic idea. assign a numerical value to what ever kind of media you are working on the apply sliders to move each frequency or color, or motion.

It would have also given a gimps into the world of engineering and program management. This I feel would be important due to the fact that the digital media producer is not just an artist. I have had a little experience due to an early project on radio.

It would be a good for a team project in that one person can work on the sound and networking as the shows producer. A hand full of people could be the on air talent, and lastly one or more persons could be responsible for content curation. All of this sounds like a lot of work but for a group of three or more two weeks would be more than enough time to create a live radio program of at least an hour no problem.

While I am revealed that this weeks assignments or over I am excited to see what next weeks projects hold.

#ds106… We are taking over 

This week we have been assigned a radio broadcast Mary, Nick, and Miranda, will be my radio mates on this adventure.  Though, Miranda is not physical in class with us I am sure she will prove to be a valuable asset to our team. During this weeks meetings we discussed the parameters of our broadcast as well as how each of us would contribute to the team. We then made a rough time line of how we thought the show would run.

So as you can see by the image I have volunteered to provide a commercial and some interviews of people telling story’s of experiences they have had with ghosts. I will also be having a discussion with one of my fellow group mates about what the meaning of the song “Hotel California” by The Eagles.

I Am going to have to brush up on my eagles lore. sounds like nick is pretty knowledgeable about the band. It will be a fun experience. I am also doing a commercial. I figured That I would help out a local band in town and create an advertisement. It would make the ad that much more meaningful of a message if it was a real one.

This week I have also created a bumper sticker for the show. After viewing some more specific to our show bumper stickers  over at https://maewers.wordpress.com/2015/10/11/radio-show-progress-week-7/ , I may go back to the drawing board. As a matter of fact it seams that Mary continues to produce extremely creative and top rate work.

Next Week

For the next week I will work on the creation of the commercial I will also start developing a plan for The Hotel California discussion. I am of the opinion like many others that is is a song about drug addiction. though I will admit the I have devoted little if any time to finding the actual meaning of the song. I will also work on developing ad Show poster along with any assignment bank assignments that are prescribed.
