Goal of the Project

For this project, the Lowell Guitars Commercial Video was created in 2018 to advertise a new fictional retail store. This video is kept to 30 seconds to fit within the standard time frame for a typical television commercial. The project was to incorporate a fictional company logo of our own design, utilize motion graphics, appropriate video transitions and our own audio narration to create a complete commercial for a product.

Solution to the Problem

For this project, I created a commercial for a fictitious retail store called Lowell Guitars. I recorded the audio narration and used stills and video I shot. I composed and played the background music heard through my Fender Stratocaster electric guitar into the Apple GarageBand software. This 30 second commercial can be seen on my YouTube Channel under Lowell Guitars Commercial at: https://youtu.be/-OA3YBdlGwg

Background Music

Th music for this commercial was recorded into Apple GarageBand on a MacBook Pro. This Lowell Guitars Commercial Music is an original composition played on my Fender Stratocaster electric guitar available on Soundcloud.
