25 So which techniques would work best for your task? Your group will create a 30-40 second video advertisement that will be used to sell the yearbook. Consider your audience and purpose for the following task: Which technique(s) would be the most effective for your advertising campaign? Create a thinking map that describes the most effective techniques you might use for your advertisement. In the frame, take notes on your audience and purpose.

26 Performance Task You and your group members have just formed your own advertising firm. You received a call from your first potential client this morning. Your client, the Western High School Yearbook Class, has asked you to help them advertise their product, the 2015 Western High School yearbook. Your potential client gave you a deadline of Tuesday, April 21 st.

27 Performance Task (continued) Before you start planning your advertisement, view some ads on You Tube. While you are viewing the ads, consider the following: Does the ad effectively use the techniques we discussed? Who is the target audience of the advertisement? Considering this target audience, how does the ad appeal to this group? How does the setting, characters, music, and the general “feel” of the ad create an overall tone that might effectively communicate an idea to the target audience.

28 Performance Task (continued) Choose one advertisement that you viewed as a model for your ad. Consider how you might model your ad on this model. You aren’t replicating this ad; rather, you are attempting to replicate the successful choices with techniques and the “feel” of of the ad. Your Task: Create a 30-40 second advertisement for the 2015 Yearbook.

29 Performance Task (continued) Before you write your script, make a list of questions you might have about your product and target audience. Once you create your ad, you will present it to your client (the Yearbook class), and they will select the firm(s) they would like to use for their advertising campaign.
