NBC4, Here I Come!!!

WOOT!  It is official!  I have an internship!

This is the logo for the talk show I will
get to work with in Spring 2011
As of 11:00 am yesterday (Thursday February 24, 2011) this girl has been hired to be an intern with WCMH, an NBC affiliate station in Columbus, Ohio.  I will get to work as a part of the Operations Department with a talk show/advo-tainment segment called Daytime Columbus.

Daytime Columbus airs weekdays at 11:00 am on the local channel 4.  It is an innovative form of advertising that does not feel like advertising to the viewers.  To put it simply, this program is a paid infomercial in a talk show format--meaning basically the guests for the talk show have paid NBC to be on the show.  It is a brilliant idea!

As an intern, I will have the opportunities to be a part of the production, be in the studio during productions, interact with the clients, edit clips of the show for the web presence, and assist in script writing!  I will have the opportunity to do a little bit of everything!  It sounds amazing!

While I do live in and attend school in Cincinnati, working in Columbus for eleven weeks will still be a feasible option because my parental units live in a Columbus suburb.  I suppose my sister will enjoy having me there too...or maybe it will be because I will have my guinea pig, Kitchi Kitchi Kitchi, there too.

Just in case you might be interested, here is a link for Daytime Columbus:

The Walking Dead Project

This is a short analysis of the 2010 Toyota Corolla car commercials that have been airing during the new AMC hit television show, The Walking Dead.

The Walking Dead is based on a comic by the same name (that is still in production). The Toyota Corolla commercials air both online and during live broadcasts and suggest that the Corolla will be able to save you from a zombie attack.  This is a rather absurd idea.  Personally I would want to have an armored Brinks truck if a herd of zombies began attacking.

I worked on this project as a part of a bigger project for a Survey of Programming class I took at UC in the fall of 2010.  I would not say it is a fabulous piece of work, but I think that is decently not bad.  I'll let you be the judge.
