Today you turned in your Trial by TV exercise and for some of you, you found the beginnings of a character.
In class we worked on fleshing out a character (perhaps the character that you began to find in the Trial by TV exercise – perhaps a different character) using an image you brought into class.
For Monday, October 24, you have 2 things due.
1. If you missed class, either because you didn’t have your image with you, or you simply were not in class, you have until Monday to finish up this exercise. Use Pages 36 and 37 in your Workbook to detail your character. Turn these two pages in on Monday along with your image. (You will NOT lose any credit if you turn this in on Monday.)
If the image you selected and brought to class didn’t work for you, you are welcome to pick out another image! Use one of the ones I posted last week if needed. (Scroll down.)
In class we worked on using that character (or a slight tweak to that character) to read the copy on page 153 of your textbook. Sparkle Oh! the Oven. Continue to polish the character you started using the original image and the script from that commercial.
2. The second part of the assignment is on Pages 32 and 33 of the Workbook.
Pick one of the spots from Chapter 14 of your Textbook – Commercial Characters – and have that ready for playback in class. If you do not feel that you have more than one character in you, then adapt the character you created today into something that will work for one of the scripts (other than the Sparkle Oh! spot).
Read them all and HAVE FUN!
Please read the instructions – basically you are doing everything that we have been doing, but this time you will be naming, describing and detailing the character you will be using in the spot you select.
