Off the bat, I was personally able to do this in shorter time than planned; pressing matters took away my attention. Regardless, I had a lot of fun with this! That’s why I was proud of the outcome. To find fun in something is my ultimate goal, and this is an example of that. I was able to immerse myself and make something enjoyable, for not just myself, but hopefully others.
From the script writing to the jingle selecting, the speaking and the editing. It’s all something I enjoyed putting my own personality into. In the name of my news channel being a joke, my liking of space, the weird but real sports score, the rhyming in the weather section. And the other jokes, all something I’d hope the audience would smile at too. Though I found the whole process enjoyable and maybe even easy (humble brag), it’s baffling that a 2 minute recording can take a few hours to create. I could see this being bigger and better if I had more time than what I was able; say for future endeavors! Such as not forgetting a commercial segway and slapping it on; or going just a couple seconds over, but worth it to produce what I had envisioned. But what I did create is something fun, that I ultimately really liked!
Definitely going to use some of these jingles for future creative projects I have planned. I really liked a couple of the jingles that I picked. One of my favorite talk show hosts is Space Ghost (Coast To Coast), and I chose my opening because it was similar to that theme. That kind of satire/ parody is definitely an inspiration; to make fun jokes and be self aware. In my commentary writing (that stretches further than this assignment that I plan to create), I also draw inspiration from the comedy show Who’s Line is it Anyway, comedian Norm MacDonald, and comedy YouTube channel Funhaus. So, shout out to them! For motivation and inspiration.
