Ad Re-creation


For this project, you will find either a print ad or a commercial/PSA that already exists that you can re-create.  You must be aware of your skill level and must be able to dissect the ad/commercial in order to re-create it. However, if you are up for the challenge and you need assistance, please ask.

Print ad pre-production includes printing off a copy of the ad and making notes around the ad as to how you will re-create individual objects.
Examples could be including colour information, what/where you will take digital pictures of, objects that can be made in Illustrator, font families, sizes.

Commercial/PSA pre-production includes downloading the ad and creating a shot list.  You will also need to write out any dialogue, locations to shoot, props etc.


NOTE: Video MUST have a PIP (picture in picture) of the original commercial.

You will have 2 weeks to complete the assignment.
