For the past few weeks we have been creating commercials to sell the products that we want to sell. We have to create an advertisement and try to make the ad persuasive and try to influence people to buy our product. We had to get into groups Me, Alicia and Estelle made an advertisement about eco dog toys.The video tells people to buy our eco friendly dog toy. And it makes dogs happy. But before you get to the filming stage to have to go through a process and once you finished that process you can start to film.
First you and your group have to plan what you are going to sell and why. The next stage is to create a storyboard so when you start to film you know what the story is about and you know what you are doing. Then you have to create a script so you know what you’re going to say because if you improvise you can mess up the whole video. Then you have to rehearse because you need a lot of practise. Then you film and when you are done you have to edit it the ad to have special effects to make it look and sound real.
We did this activity because ad’s have a lot of ways to influence people’s thoughts and make them want to buy their product. And all week we have been learning about how ads make people want to buy their product.
I chose this topic to blog about because I enjoyed this activity and been wanting to do this for a very long time.
Now I know different types of angles to shoot videos. 2 weeks ago ms. Fung taught us that there are different types of angles to shoot a video. Before she taught me I didn’t know how to shoot a video but know I do. I had so much fun creating an advertisement with my group. All that my group has to do is edit our advertisement on iMovie to create some special. I had so much fun
Last week we were learning about how to compare advertisements. We were in a group and each group got a piece of paper and 2 advertisement pictures. We had to write down what makes the 2 pictures persuasive. Our group had 2 adidas advertisement photos. One with Messi and one with the shoes. The Messi advertisement uses a famous soccer player playing football. The advertisement used puffery.Also the Messi poster had a slogan “play the Messi way.” Most people really get persuaded by that advertisement because a lot of people like Messi. I think that the Messi poster was more effective than the plain adidas ad because Messi was wearing the whole set of adidas clothes, pants and shoes. The adidas one wasn’t really effective because it just showed plain shoes. The background in the Messi advertisement really matches with his outfit. I think that people would want to wear those shoes and outfit because Messi was wearing it. The colour really matches with the mist in the background. I really liked creating a poster about comparing advertisements. It was really fun.
This week we started get into groups and choose one of these topics : Money raised is a puppy saved, Vote for me and No more plastic in the Flower fair. My group did a poster about Money raised is a puppy saved. We tried to tell the audience about how some puppies are struggling in life. So we created a garage sale and we were trying to sell second hand books and toys. For our group are target audience was people who want to help the struggling puppies and puppy lovers. We tried to influence our audience by drawing lots of pictures and colours. I think our audience would now want to come to our garage sale to help us raise money to help the S.P.C.A. I really enjoyed created the poster with my group !
