The number of alternate takes Jayden and I recorded for our WABCDEFG News radio piece is mind-boggling. With the extra time I’ve had lately, I’ve been digging through old files to find stuff to post here.
I managed to find Jayden’s original read of the “Talking While On A Cell Phone” segment, which in the final piece was voiced by me. He decided to channel Al Pacino, as you can hear in the clip below.
After two years of being in the journalism program at Fanshawe College, I can finally look back at my time in it, and reflect. Reflect about what? Well, listening to my older newscasts, reflect on how far I’ve come when speaking into a microphone.
Being the digital packrat I am, I tracked down both my first cast done for the program (which was really a pre-recorded newscast for an assignment and never actually went on air) and my last newscasts done for the X this past March.
First off, the pre-recorded newscast from September 26, 2012.
And now a news update from 6:30am on March 14, 2014 (I would post the very last, done at noon with Emina, but I can’t find it on my computer! Of all the things!..)
It’s not the greatest clip, as I was still waking up. That being said, there still is a good difference (somewhat) between September 2012 me and March 2014 me.
I’m still in the midst of sorting through audio (LOTS OF AUDIO), files, and documents from my time in the program. There’s no doubt that more stuff will make its way up here.
