Reed & Cane Basket Commercial

The Work Itself 

This is my second of two required video assignments for this week. This assignment is titled “DIY Product Commercial“. Its instructions were to “create a commercial for a product you have made your self. the video should be 45 seconds to 1 minute long and contain LIVE acting. no copy and past clips. submit it to you tube and tag it #ds106.” This assignment is rated 5/5 in terms of difficulty. My brother recorded a video of my advertisement, then I uploaded it to my YouTube channel. My video is titled “Reed and Cane Basket Commercial“.

The Story Behind The Story

I made this basket in a arts class in my freshman year of high school. This basket is made from only reed and cane. I weaved the reed in an intricate pattern/design under and above the cane. I colored parts of the basket in a forest green shade and weaved a diamond design on each end of the handle. This basket is in good shape and still serves its purpose of holding various items. As you can see in my commercial, it can hold tremendous weight and any shape of object. It is a must buy and if purchased now, you will receive an extra basket for free! It makes for a lovely home design and will fit in perfectly with the fall and winter seasons.

The Process, Narrated

This assignment is pretty simple. My brother recorded a video of me advertising my product on my iPhone. I emailed the video to myself so I could download it and upload it to my YouTube channel. No editing was necessary. I wrote a short description and tagged it appropriately. Below are a few photos to document the process.
