Today’s panel discussion was interesting, so we’ll follow up next time with a discussion of advertising. I asked you to read up on the following things before next class (on March 31st):
In Preparation for the Lecture:
In Preparation for the Small Group Discussion:
Also, PLEASE remember that your current big homework assignment (making an advertisement for any product, real or imagined) is due on
March 31st (correction: April 14th). You may make either a video (ie. TV ad) or magazine advertisement. (If you make a print ad, you might want to submit a series — two or three — in order to make sure your best work is included.) You must NOT use anyone else’s content in your advertisement: no downloading pictures, no downloading music that isn’t legally, freely available.
If you would like some legally usable music, I recommend looking at the website Jamendo. There is a lot there, and if you credit the artist (with a link) it will be enough.
I will want these assignments in electronic form so I can post them to our class website for other students to see.
