Everybody created their own plots for the radio project – it was awesome to hear what some came up with! Besides that, plenty happened this week…
The process of creating this project was really fun! Ideas came easily with such a creative group to work with. That being said, it took much longer than I thought it would. Audio editing certainly takes a lot of time. I’m glad we decided to do the faux listener call-ins by recording over the actual phone. Trying to put an effect on all the voices in post production would have taken ages. We all did our fair share of the work and I’m happy with the product.
I decided to revise the song I posted originally in my Play the DJ assignment. I thought the middle part was a bit plain and the ending came too suddenly, so I changed it up. It’s fun to revisit an old project and rework it. You come in with fresh perspective. I feel like I could keep working on the same song forever – I need to know when to move on to a new project and realize I can always come back to it later.
I loved working with audio this week – I picked up some skills with crossfading clips, looping, and adding reverb in audacity. I’ll never forget you radio-project-week, you will be missed:

To end our meeting, we delegated out the design tasks for the first week. Here’s what I tackled:
