Sam Phillips, founder of Sun Studios, knew that he needed a white man that could sing like a black man in order to break into the recordings market in 1955-6. He finally found that sound in Elvis Presley when Elvis came in to make a recording for his mother – “That’s All Right Mama”. Sam immediately signed Elvis for Sun Studios.
Pretend you have your own studio in your house. If you were wanting to “make it big” as a record producer today, what would the artists you recruit sound like? Create a “want ad” to place in the newspaper that describes what you want from an artist (sound, dress, dance, whatever!) Remember, you’re kind of poor because you don’t have a big artist yet, so every word costs!
Objective: author a short newspaper (classified) want ad for a make-believe recording studio recruiting new talent. The ad should be short, concise, no pictures/graphics, no special fonts, and include only the following components:1) Who you are [1 point]2) Where you are located [2 points]3) What do you specialize in [2 points]4) Describe what do seek [2 points]5) How to contact you [2 points]6) How much did this ad cost to run in the Keast Kronicle? [1 point]
Your studio is really struggling in this poor economy and thus can’t afford much on this want ad. You’re given a budget of $20 total. Each word in the Keast Kronicle want ads costs you $.20. ***No images allowed.***
This individual assignment is worth 10 points. For each $.20 over budget, you lose a ½ point. 🙁
Submit your want ad as simple text (no attached documents) in the discussion forum labeled “Rockabilly Artist Want Ads” as such:
