Radio show Process Summery 2

In today’s meeting, we finished the dialogs for the characters (host and guest). We made it interesting enough to make the characters share heir stories throughout the show and gossip about it. The music have been chosen based on the characters interests and to make it relate to the show. We are planing to meet Thursday to record and put together the final tips for the show. We might start the commercials tomorrow as well if we find enough time. So far we only to make sure that after we record the show it goes within the time limit since we only have 2 people working on this.

 

This was it for the show plaining and I think the group is doing a good job putting the thoughts in this.

 

Radio show Process Summery 1

Tuesday night, Dalina and I met through google hangout and planed the radio show in terms of who is the host and who are we featuring. and so we decided that Dalina’s character will be the host and my character will be the guest interviewed in the radio show. In the process we divided the commercials In terms of when are playing them during the radio. We also picked out the themes and what we are featuring in each commercial. We are planning to pick a famous song from the early 1900  to start the show with and end it as well.

The show will be mainly about the character but also we will give a breaking news to gossip about and a short weather break that the host will be doing.

 

We are planning to meet Wednesday afternoon to write the interview dialog and pick the song. We are also planing to start recording either Wednesday or Thursday.

 

 

Week 6 Summery Being Professional

THE NOIR BUZZ RADIO SHOW GROUP REPORT

The Noir Buzz!

In our group there is Dalina, Stephen, Peter, Carolina, and Sahar (me). The show is about celebrity gossip and it will involve our characters that we made as the celebrities we will be presenting throughout the show. We are planing to create musics and adds as well for our project. Our show will be around 30 mins and we will divide the work between member’s in terms of who is good at what and use google docs, email, and twitter to contact each other.

The bumper I made for the project shows kind of what we will be talking about where some of us will be the presenters where others will do the editing and work on the ads.

In terms of how the group will be meeting. I have created a survey monkey link for my group members to go select all the times possible to meet during next to make sure we have enough time to edit and do the rest of work. I also shared that on the google doc that I have created. I shared this google doc with my professors to give us ideas and thoughts and follow up as needed.

Stay connected to get more updates about the project.

THE NOIR BUZZ BUMPER STICKER

I have created this bumper sticker for our radio show. The idea of the show is to bring up topics and stories about celebrities life and issues noir style. I picked bleach and white pictures and also relate to  my group’s characters. I made them random and each looks different because the show will talk about many things so I made it dark, enjoyable, and romantic. Later we will make updates in terms of the specific topics we are covering in the radio show.  Keep up and read more to know more about our show.

LINE REMIX

This assignment is worth 3 stars, It is one o my favorite audio assignments. It is about picking a line from a famous movie or show and remix it. This line is one of my best lines. Not only funny but inspiring. I like how it takes me out of my sad mood and makes me happy. I hope you can recall this line from How I met your mother. The line was one of barny’s famous quotes.

YOUR THEME SONG

This assignment is worth 4 stars and it is an opportunity to create my own theme music. I went to SoundBible and got a couple of sound effects there. The rest I just picked up from other sites. The only thing about SoundBible is that it is hard to navigate in otherwise great source and have lots of choices. Enjoy my track and feel free to write a comment.

 

SOUNDS OF YOUR DAY

I did the Sounds of Your Day assignment and it is worth 3 stars. I did it starting from my morning until my afternoon ends. I edited it using Audacity and combined multiple tracks together. I added my morning rituals like waking up to the alarm sound, talking a shower, washing my teeth, eating breakfast, doing work, watching TV shows, hanging out in the coffee shop, and walking around with the constructions noise around my apartment. I hope you guys enjoy this!

RADIO SHOW

In Wednesday night, we listened to Notorious film over ds106 radio station. I liked the film and I got really attached with the characters. Even though I got shocked many times by the characters behaviors but the film was very unique and outstanding. I liked the engagement with classmates that night on twitter. We were a small group but at the same we kept replying to each other and interact while enjoying. Last time it was harder because I couldn’t focus and listen to the show and at the same time tweet about it. I guess it just takes practice.

Think about Audio Storytelling

Audio is very important in storytelling. In the mid 1900s people used to listen to the radio to follow up with their favorite TV shows or other programs. To deliver the image to the listener, audio is used with sounds effects. In noir films audio is important; for example the Touch of Evil opening shot had sounds effect almost through the whole part. Starting with the Clicking noise of the bomb, fast music, people laughing, car starting, people walking, and by the end, the bomb exploding causing fire and people screaming. All these events can be noticed by only listening without watching it on a screen happening.

Sounds drive stories because they either make or break it. Sounds are as important as the visuals because they both grab attention. Humans hear and they see things and scientifically sound travels faster. For example Raw Deal, a film noir from 1948 is one of the films that if a person can just listen without looking at the screen, he/she will still sense everything going on. Here is the movie in case you guys are interested.

Noir 106 Radio Station reflects of the readings from Radio Noir in the USA by Jesse Schlotterbeck. First the document talks about very important radio programs in the 1900s and when I listened to our radio channel on Thursday I was kind of surprised jumping from a thing to another but I guess know I know why. We got to touch different areas and different kinds of programs to make us ‘the students’ familiarized with different types of radio programs.
