Now that I know how to upload videos, I've decided to go back into the FutureDV archives and find some relics to post here. I thought, hey, why not start with my very first (modern) video project?
So I went back to 18 months ago, when I had to create a Public Service Announcement (PSA) as a sort of "final exam" for the Field Production Course that I took at the local Cable Access studio.
With the help of my buddy Antony Rodriguez, we put together a 22-second PSA to promote voter turnout (this was just days before the 2004 Presidential election, and we all know how well THAT turned out!) Here's the PSA itself:
OK, so it was very basic, but good enough for me to get my certificate. Antony's PSA on Drunk Driving (BTW, he's against it) was much better, and in fact he won a Tommie Award for it at the annual awards a while back.
After the three-hour taping session, I had a bunch of outtakes to sift through, so I put together an outtake reel. It runs about 2 minutes, and it shows just how hard it can be to tape a commercial. Enjoy!
Yeah, it WAS that awful! Just let me say I'm sorry for making you watch that.
