I don’t understand this Social Science question and need help to study.
The assignment has THREE parts: film, script, and numbered outline, which must ALL be completed in order for you to receive full credit.
WRITING COMMERCIALS & PSAs
For this assignment, you will be writing AND filming a commercial. This will count as TWO separate grades. Your written assignment must be a MINIMUM of 400 words. You may have to read ahead in your textbook to complete this assignment. Your assignment needs to be in PARAGRAPH form, but I also want you to submit a NUMBERED response to the following 6 commercial requirements AND underline and/or bold when you mention the following within your commercial:
******Please note: Following the above example, I want you to write out your commercial “script” in PARAGRAPH form. You must have a numbered list like the one above AND the paragraph form script to receive full credit!
*******I also want you to FILM this commercial to show me how you can integrate technology into this assignment. You can film this commercial with a camera, camera phone, iPad, other tablet—whatever—just make sure it is FILMED. You do not have to appear in the commercial, but there must be audio and video within your filmed commercial. If you are unable to film your commercial, please email me IMMEDIATELY to make other arrangements. If you do not email me immediately to let me know you cannot film your commercial, you are expected to submit ALL of the above requirements (including a filmed commercial) by the designated due date.
*******The information you include in this assignment can be REAL or FAKE. It does not matter; you have carte blanche. I am more concerned with your ability to follow directions and research/use information from your textbook. This assignment does nothave to be in a certain style format (AP, MLA, APA, etc.).
TYPES OF COMMERCIALS
You must follow these directions for your commercial writing:
When writing commercials and PSAs you utilize related skills. You should use the name of the business or organization three times in a 30 second spot if feasible: at the beginning, in the middle and at the end. Just like a good speech, a commercial/PSA needs an introductory sentence that captures the attention of the listener. In the middle it needs something interesting to keep the listener engaged. And like a good speech, it also needs a last sentence that lingers in the mind of the listener.
Creativity is critical. Why be boring? Remember, Time is literally Money (because that’s how they are sold). Make that commercial or PSA stand out from the rest. If it gets remembered, it’s good for everyone: the advertiser, the station, and the listener.
Feel free to use additional voices and/or sound effects to create a “theater of the mind” spot. A commercial/PSA can be considered a very short, compact radio play. You can make all the elements work together. It starts with good writing. Don’t fall back on clichés, like “save like never before” (really? who believes that?). Use your imagination. Consider each word carefully, for again time is money. You don’t want to waste the advertiser’s money/time by using unnecessary verbiage. Is each word worth a dollar? If not, erase it. Don’t use detailed directions to the storefront. Phone number/website? Make ’em short and sweet. Make me interested in whatever you’re selling! And most importantly—have fun with this assignment!
