Hello Everyone! This blog will be about my third quarter project, my PSA on smoking. PSA stands for Public Service Announcement. For this project, the maximum duration of the video is 30 seconds, or 25 seconds for certain people ,if you are in a certain category. Anyways, we got to chose a topic and an idea to make a PSA about! PSA's usually are made to get an idea or a message to the audience, what do you want the viewers to learn? What do you want them to remember? Originally, my topic was on procrastination. We all know it, we all do it, or did it before, so I thought it would be a good topic because it's well known, it's familiar to a lot of people, and there are not many Procrastination PSA videos out there. When that failed, because of lack of good, unique, non-obvious, ideas, I changed my topic to smoking. The first idea I had, didn't really work, it was just hard to do and it wasn't really good. The next idea didn't work out either, because it involved a young kid to smoke. However, thanks to Mr.M, I finally settled on a decent, approved idea. I immediately started on my treatment and shot list. The idea for my PSA is that this guy named Robert likes this girl named Karly. Robert's friend named Mark talks him into smoking, to impress her; because they think it's cool and attractive. Robert agrees and pretends to smoke while Karly and her friend are walking by. While they walk away, Karly says something like "Eww....Smoking is SOOO disgusting." The video ends with them throwing the pack away, and then the message, "Smoking. It isn't cool". After revising my 1st draft, I was good to film, and was satisfied with my grades for my treatment and my shot list/script. I'm excited to here about your PSA ideas! I heard about some really good ones, talking to you guys in class, and I'm really interested to see how the final product of the video will turn out! Anyways, thanks for reading, and make sure you go and read my next blog, dem Spoilers.
