Now, for the commercial, we needed to make a longer segment that contained an attention-drawing audio for our listeners. I wanted to relate it to the show’s science theme, so I decided to have present science experiments for the audience to come try.
I used Freesound.org for some sound effects in the background. First, you can hear the “Oohs and Ahs” in the beginning. I thought was cool because certain science experiments are very interesting and viewers always utter those words. Then the background is a mysterious and wacky sound that I wanted to have to dramatize the experiments I was showcasing. I just typed in “Science” into Freesound.org, and I found a really cool sound for this. Then I just talked for the rest of the commercial! I used all this and edited my sound using Audacity.
