The Work Itself
The Story Behind the Story
Since Halloween is just around the corner and all of the haunted houses are opening up I thought it would be relevant to put in the show. I tried to make it sound as scary as possible without actually frightening people. I think haunted houses and haunted corn mazes are a great way to grab the attention of people and when you add some free tickets to it, who isn’t going to want to listen to the radio show?
Narrating the Process
For my commercial I used two clips from freesound.org and that were extremely helpful in pulling the commercial together. I made the amplified my voice part of the clip by going to Effect –> Amplify, as you can see in the screenshot below.
Then I made the evil laugh clip that I downloaded from freesound.org have a very low volume so it could seem ominous in the background. I also used the effects Fade In and Fade Out in order give smoother transitions between the beginning and ending.
