I am perhaps one of the most patriotic women of my day. I do all I can to help the war effort from home. Although I love shopping, I reuse and mend my clothing. I buy war bonds, and of course am a professional at rationing. Although I do not work in a factory, I do do my part in entertain the many soldiers that pass through Clarkson and the Hideaway Lounge. I try to use my time on stage to help them forget of everything else… even if its just for one song. I believe that every women needs to do their part in this war. Small or large, we can all help the war effort!
Making this Public Service Announcement was quite fun, however very time consuming. First, I wrote the short script for my PSA. Then I found real war time posters and put them together on a YouTube slideshow. I made the first slide with PowerPoint. I read through my script with the video to judge how long to make each slide… 6 seconds it was. Next I recorded my script with Audacity. I also overlapped a projector noise and some background music to give it a true 1940s, something you see in a cinema, feel. After the audio was all done I recorded it onto YouTube as a separate video (It wouldn’t just let me insert my MP3 file, not sure why?). Once I uploaded the two I put them into creator studio and trimmed and did final editing on the video which was a little harder then I thought, having the two match up perfectly. But I did it!
