Fictitious Ad Video and Sound Design – 2012

Ryan Audio, Video


I partnered with Brandon Dennett to create this project for our Foundations of Digital Production Class, as part of the core Graduate Media Arts and Science program at IUPUI. The project encompassed an interactive website, a flash game, and the video shown here.

We decided to do a humorous commercial using sound to tell a story. The dad finds a (fictitious) video game online called Woodland Critter Christmas (South Park origin), and neglects to check the rating before gifting it to his son for Christmas. The commercial is advertising a fake online video game website that helps the user select appropriate video games for the holidays.

Brandon and I shared the writing and directing role. Brandon edited the video, I designed the sound effects and score.
