I have not been given permission to take final project as of yet. I know that I would like to do a podcast. My podcast would be released every two weeks starting in May 2015. I am planning on taking the final project class in Fall 2015. The reason why I am deciding on taking it during the 2015 fall semester is because final project would be the only class I will to be taking in the fall. This is going to allow me to be fully dedicated and focused on my final project. I want my final project to be something that can possible help me open some door for me in the radio industry.
The podcast I have in mind is going to have like a morning show feel to it. But you can tune into us at anytime. It is going to be about an hour to an hour and a half show. It would be either released every other Monday or every other Friday on Soundcloud and other different podcast services. We would talk about our daily lives, past experiences, relationship issues, and other different topics. Also I would like to have guest interview. (Up and coming artist). I have decided to partner up with Shakelia, who would be co-host of our show and she would be in charge of the guests we would have on the show. I would also like to incorporate some music or some sound effect that would be appropriate for the show. I do not want this to be some corny/low production show. Even though, I am not going to have the best production equipment. I am going to put all of me into this podcast and I want to show that I am really truly passionate about radio production/sound editing.
I have a friend who is a music producer and he has all of the tools I need in order to record my podcast. I have Adobe Audition to make my sound editing and I can also see if my friend is available to help me out with some sound editing too. I am also doing my research to see if I can possible make my own little studio. But as a backup I have found apps on my phone that I can record and upload my podcast directly to there website.
In regards to my Internship Plan, I have some ideas where I would like to intern. I would love to intern for the Elvis Duran and The Morning Show during the summer. They will be accepting applicants for the Summer 2015 semester starting April 1st. I am also thinking about possibly doing another internship during the fall 2015. I am open to any radio production company. I am interested in interning at Sirius, iHeart Radio, Hot97, Power105, La Mega, La X. or ESPN Radio. I definitely will be talking to Daniel Phelps to see if he can give me some pointers/guidance to land a great internship location.
I have a resume I believe is ready to go. But I need to have Daniel Phelps approve it or maybe give me some suggestions to make it better. I need to work on writing my cover letter, since the internships I would like to get into require a cover letter. I definitely would link my online portfolio to show what kind of person I am. They describe that they would like to have people who are fun and I believe a way that they can determine that is by my online presence.
I do have an Online Portfolio that does need some more of my work. My portfolio link is www.yova.me. I will be learning more skills in the spring semester and I would like to be able to show case my skills in the near future. I do have some of my work that I am proud of and I believe if will reflect what I am capable of doing. I have attached my resume, along with my contact information, to my portfolio; I just need to work on my cover letter. There are also links to my social media. My online portfolio is easy to navigate since everything is on one page and the links on the top of the page just automatically scroll down to what you have chosen. If you click on the about me link it will scroll automatically to about a quarter way down and it will show you my “About Me” information. I really like the way my portfolio is set up but I just need to put some more of my own work into it. But I am also open to any suggestions. The links I have are Home, About, Services, Production, and Contact.
