PRODUCTION WEEK 1 (THE START):
All the class were set up into one group (because we are just 7 people in class). Firstly, before deciding our roles for the show, we decided on our music show genre. We had different choices of genre to choose from classic, sunrise, contemporary to rock but we decided to do it about Absolute 80’s.
Next step was to plan and discuss our roles for the show and then, we all were discussing on what we would like to do, I decided to be the head of advertising and help Paola in her role of social media producer also.
Once the roles decided, we had a meeting to decide the name of the Show that it is named ‘Lunch and Lauren Show’ and also, we opted for showing it from 12 to 2pm the 29th November. After that, we decided of what music policy we could give to our audience. We decided that the audience for our show it should be around 40-55 years old.
After deciding the name of the show and for what audience we want to do the show. The first lecturer, Simon, showed us how to upload music and clips onto Myriad, editing the beginning and the final of different songs.
As Head of Advertising, we need to create 12 advertisements for the show. I will create three advertisements: Jet2 Holidays, drink driving and Tesco Goods, while the rest of my colleagues will create one or two like Hannah. It’s important to add that we learnt what steps we need to use to create an advertisement with a duration of 20, 30 or 40 seconds. Additionally, before choosing the advertisements I created two audience profiles. One about women and other about male (with the help of Thuong). Besides, with Lauren’s help, we created two genders avatars (female and male).
Finally, we learned how to introduce to our show a clock. After that, we created our clock and we added in the first hour clock: songs, advertisements, links and competition. The second hour clock: songs, advertisements, links, sweeper & O.B and competition reminder. In addition, a few of us created some jingles for the show.
PRODUCTION WEEK 2:
On the one hand, we have started to work on advertisements and put our ideas into the scripts.
As the head of advertising, I was in charge of creating three advertisements (Tesco Clubcard App, Drink Driving and Jet2 Holidays). In the beginning it was very difficult for me to find actors or actresses or presenters, because most of them wanted to be paid some money back (some of them, wanted to get more than 100 pounds). Nevertheless, thanks to Matthews’s help, I was able to find ‘Fiverr’ website where I could have my advertisements recorded for much less.
This way I have already made 2 advertisements (including editing and sound effects). At the moment, I’m just about to finish my last one that is about Jet2 Holidays.
On the other hand, on Thursday (7/11/19) we met our guest musician. His name is Josh and I will be his producer during his time in the show. I started to practice in the desk next to Hannah, who will be with me in the studio in charge of letting me know about any issues between the studios. I think that her role is important for me because she will be the person who will keep the connection between my studio and Simone’s studio.
Apart from this, we have already edited the playlist that Marlysez established.
