Congratulations! You've been hired by your favorite fantasy world to create a radio ad for the imaginary business or event of your choice. Be as creative as you can and background music is highly encouraged. Simply give all the details about the business or occasion and maybe even create a clever slogan to go along with it! For mine, I made an ad for Linus' Pumpkin Patch/ the Great Pumpkin Festival from PEANUTS, however yours can be anything you wish! I highly recommend stripping background music from a youtube video and recording your voice/putting everything together in garage band or a similar application. Afterwards, go ahead and string some photos together to create an iMovie file that can be easily shared on YouTube. Have Fun!
