Time to play!!! This is your first recorded homework assignment for the semester and all of the instructions you need are on Pages 8 and 9 of your Workbook. If you do NOT have the workbook yet, please email me for the assignment details.
Basically though, you are to record some commercial breaks from the radio or TV and pick one spot for which you think your voice is suited. Keep the spot pretty straightforward for this exercise, nothing too crazy. Transcribe the spot and then re-record the words in your own voice – following the directions outlined in the assignment.
What I am looking for is your instinctive understanding of where you might fit in this business. Additionally, I am looking at your ability to follow directions.
If you are using a computer to create and then print out the script, do yourself a favor – double space, use serif font (Times Roman), 12 point font (at least), upper/lower case, and nice wide margins so that the copy is sort of in the middle of the page.
If you are hand-writing the copy, please print in nice neat handwriting and follow the general directions just stated – double space, upper/lower case, large enough to see. And in this case, use PEN, not a Pencil to write out the script, because we will be using a pencil to mark the script during the critiquing phase.
You have my email if you have any questions.
