Alternative GO ARMY audio ad

Postby Ava » Sat May 08, 2010 7:32 pm

This is my final project for Sound Image, my audio drama class at NYU. I recently saw a new GO ARMY spot and decided to use it as the basis for my final project. In my version, I took the format of the ad, which used the U.S. Soldier's Creed, and altered it to give what I believe is a more honest portrayal of the current U.S. Army experience, which is very different from the fun action-filled portrayal in the GO ARMY advertisements.

Good work on your audio ad however, I have to say it seems a little odd to "see" a work of yours without video but, your ad is effective and well executed and that's coming from someone who doesn't wholeheartedly embrace the message you are "selling."

thanks rick

yeah, freshman year we have one semester devoted to the visual in which we work with still photography (particularly with lighting and composition). the other semester is only audio and we work a lot with directing actors and writing. this coming year i'll be working with film each semester.. the first with narrative film and the second semester i'm doing a documentary class. :)
