Does Gas Mileage Turn You On?

A new game of chess

I made a commercial for the product placement radio ad assignment and did it a little bit differently. Though not necessarily owned by anyone, the games of chess and checkers are 1) widely popular, 2) centered around the same general idea and 3) major representations of the “game” so often …

New Audio Assignment

I thought I’d help my radio show group kill two birds with one stone by creating an audio assignment that related to the content we’re creating for our radio show. The assignment is to make a radio ad out of product placement that occurs in a TV show or movie.…
