A Child Can Do The Laundry

Sucking at something is the first step at being kind of OK at something.

When people talk about learning how to code, or building websites, I would always stare at them blankly. In my mind programmers were wizards with some sort of immense brains capacity.

You Can't Be Prepared For Everything

While driving to my first day at The Voice just three days ago, I wondered what the day would be like. I tried to think up all the possible things they could expect of me, hoping that it would be within the realm of what I have learned in my last two years of college. I felt confident in my range abilities, still riding on the high after receiving straight A’s just a few weeks earlier. It is safe to say that I am a perfectionist, the type of student that will read the textbook twice just to be sure that there will be no surprises on the exam. Over-preparing is my specialty, my seemingly fool-proof method for success. I now admit that it was about time for me to get a reality check, one that was about to take place that day.

Shine a Light on Business Opportunities with LED

Led Lights by Pixomar, Published on 29 October 2009 http://www.freedigitalphotos.net/

LED, or light emitting diode, is a newer mode of lighting. An LED is easily identified by the smaller collection lights, seen as just dots, that make up the display light itself. LEDs are very bright, and are rising into popularity in advertising due to their stunning imagery and flexibility for a variety of uses.

An Ending of the Last Week

As I say farewell to five months of working at the Voice Advertising Agency, it's time to move on to the next step in life, and that's the real world. I am ready to continue my passion with film-making for the future, and have an exciting adventure ahead of me. At my last day here at the Voice, I spent the entire time working on a trailer to somehow put together a montage of what went on throughout the semester, and how great it is to work at the Voice. I took clips from my video projects, Tony's video projects, and photographs, and put together a one-minute trailer to showcase the advertising agency. In addition, I briefly spent time making sure all of the blogs I wrote were written by me (to make it say, "By Ray Corriea" instead of "By The Interns"). It's been a pleasure working here, and once again, I look forward for the future.

A Little Bit of Work

This week has been a busy week for me since I was preparing for my final weeks in college, so that was my main priority. I was only able to come on Friday to continue with what I left off with last week. I took the camcorder and watched a small video tutorial on how to have the projector screen working. It's easy with unedited videos, but to have edited videos on there was going to be a difficult task for me to accomplish, also to have it project outside in the day time was just no way.

What's What?

Not that much done for this week at the Voice. I just put all of my video work onto the right server, and upload the Levine Huntley commercials on YouTube (as well as putting it in the server). Honestly, with my last few weeks of college happening, and upcoming events that I'm part of, my balance between work and school has been interfering with each other. So hopefully within the last few weeks, my progress won't continue to slow down.

What have the interns learned?

I’m really fortunate to have spent my spring semester at The Voice! During my time here I was able to learn a lot about the world of advertising that I wouldn’t have known without my time here! I was able to learn a lot in both the creative aspects of advertising as well as the business and account side. I was able to work hands on wither different departments at The Voice and worked on projects ranging from email marketing to copywriting and social media marketing. I learned so much from the team here at The Voice and I know my time here is definitely going to help me in the future!

The Projects Go On and On

Another week when I came in three times and focused on a continuing process. My main tasks were to take the videos (Tom Thumb, Barnum Wall, the Kitchen, Breathe Easy, and Burma-Shave) and upload them to any social media site they don't appear on. I basically took all of these videos and made sure they were complete before moving to the promotional stage. Also, I took the Barnum Wall and Tom Thumb video, and made a one minute version for each as Matt decided to have quick promotions/history lessons for viewers to watch.
