I generally hate group projects, especially ones for an online class. People generally cannot meet at the same time, or someone does less work than everyone else, or you can’t come up with a cohesive idea.
However, our radio show group was probably one of the easiest groups I have worked with in a while. We all found times to meet, and everyone was building off of each other’s ideas.
While it took a while to write up a script, we all worked together to develop the ideas. Sometimes we would come up with things as the script was being written and other times we planned out what was going to happen. And for the first time, having a large group helped out a little!
— it offered a system of checks and balances when we were connecting all of our points. If we contradicted something earlier on, someone always caught it. Overall we had fun with it. There were times when we got completely ridiculous with our lines.
Eventually, we developed a system where each person would write the lines for their own character. In a way became our characters. We had to think and talk like them, which was emphasized even more when it came down to recording.
We met three different times throughout the week, but towards the end it came down to just cranking out the script, recording it and adding sound effects.
Mia and I worked on the commercials, Philip, Cuyler and Brian created the radio bumpers, everyone helped pick out the sound effects, and then Philip complied them all and put the finished product together. We all worked on the script together and spent about 5 hours in the ITCC finishing it all up.
Here is the script for the show.
