30 Second PMSS announcement assignment

Create a 30-second PMSS announcement radio spot with music & sound effects. Since it is the holiday season, you get bonus points if you make yours with a festive theme (ie. christmas songs, christmas effects). You can either make up your announcement for:

  • a school event (ie, spirit week, concert, club announcement)
  • an upcoming game or sporting event at the school.

Remember, you can make up an event or game, etc.. for this announcement. And you can embellish it to make it sound better. Obviously, your announcement must be school appropriate, no swearing and inappropriate content, please discuss with Mr. Chu if you are not sure.

Your announcement must include:

  • a script (printed out and shown to instructor prior to using microphone).
  • vocal track(s) (create your own original script and read it).
  • minimum 5 track theme song in the background created by YOU (must, at least, be at start & end… if this runs throughout, adjust volume accordingly).
  • 4+ special effects (lots of loops in Garageband and/or Free-loops.com…use relevant ones for your specific announcements).

Things to consider:

Make this like a professional sound track. Don’t just plop down a sound every few seconds. Ensure that you can actually hear all the different elements that you worked so hard to get into your announcement…most important, though, is the VOICEOVER…we MUST understand what you are saying!

Please be sure to submit your MP3 file in a properly named folder (ie, lastname-announcement). Script in PDF or MS Word must be submitted as well.
