Voicemail In Need

Voicemail?

When I was flipping through the Assignment bank and came across Movie Voice Machines I got pretty excited. It was 3 stars. It immediately reminded me of a scene in the tv show Futurama. The basic premise was that one character Bender left his roommate Fry on another planet …

Xena’s Voicemail

I know, I know… Xena again.  But I’m loving these ideas that integrate television characters with new creativity and media, and thus I tried my hand at this assignment.  I began by brainstorming the sort of messages that might be left for Xena (who is a rather stoic character).  …

If Khalessi, Mother of Dragons, Had A Voicemail

My Version of Jesse Pinkman’s Answering Machine

Morlium Here…

When I saw answering machine, my immediate thought was the Rockford Files, where a comedic blurb occurs at the beginning of each episode. Unfortunately, after rereading the assignment, I realized I was creating a message, rather than leaving one. Out comes Morlium again.

Another Answering Machine

I know I won’t get credit for doing another answering machine assignment, but I wanted to do another one anyway. I have always loved the Hannibal Lecter series of films, and Anthony Hopkins. Hannibal was on tv last night as I laid down for the night, and I immediately thought …

Audio Assignment 196 Movie Answering Machine

I remember the days of getting home to my empty apartment and going straight to the answering machine to see if I had any messages. Sometimes I did, other times not. Sometimes they were good messages, other times they were from the ex wife digging for more money. But the …

Audio Assignment #2: Elle Woods’ Voicemail

Delta Gamma Nu and always in pink: Elle Woods from Legally Blonde. An instant classic. As a blonde, this film was one of my absolute favorites growing up. At the peak of middler school era “dumb blonde” jokes, this movie always gave me a positive outlook on being blonde. While …
