This week we started to work on our small group radio show. I got into a group with Kevin, Hannah, and Krystal. We all had busy schedules so we decided to make a google doc and send some emails throwing around ideas. One of the ideas that was thrown around was where we talk about our favorite secret agent and why they are our favorite. Below is a write up of our progress:

I decided to use this idea to make a poster with some of the Bond actors and the tag “who’s your favorite.” I like the idea of multiple secret agents being talked about so I used my personal favorite, Bond, and made a poster for our show if this is the idea we end up using.
Throughout the week I did three daily creates. The first one I did was on Tuesday, February 28 and was a reply to the send a spy mask selfie. I hate taking pictures of myself so I used a selfie of someone else, the Master of Disguise:
The next one I did was on Wednesday, March 1 and was a reply to the show your spy secret weapon. What could be better than a multi use umbrella to take down bad guys?
The last one I did was on Thursday, March 2 and was a reply to the best of animals: make the animal cover. I used a picture of my dogs and called it the two dogs of Christmas.
Then I met the minimum for number of stars for audio assignments for the week. The first one I did was worth 3.5 stars and is where you had to reverse a song on audacity. I found a cool royalty free song online and put it in audacity and reversed it under the effects tab. I think it turned out really cool.

The next assignment I did was 2 stars and was called can’t get it out of my head. For this one you whistle a song that is stuck in your head. I had a weird song from a British tv show stuck in my head that I saw on Twitter.

I did an assignment worth 3.5 stars and was called 800% slower. For this one you find a song and slow it down in Audacity by 800%. I found a royalty free French sounding song online and slowed it down under the effects tab. It sounds really weird but it was interesting to hear the before and after.

The last one I did was worth 3 stars and was called make your own ringtone. This was the last one I did and brought me over the 10 star minimum. For this I found a guitar solo on the free sound effects sight and found a beat to put it to. I overlapped the two on Audacity and I think it turned out really well.
And as usual I commented on people’s assignments and posts. This was a good week and helped me to prepare for the upcoming radio show and let me use my creativity to do the audio assignments.
