    2) Teenagers who have just started driving.
    3) Out message was to drive responsibly.
    4) We did not use any.
    5) The most difficult part of the shooting phase was getting shots in the car and making it look good. The most difficult part of the editing phase was keeping the video under one minute.

    2. Teens driving.
    3. Dont drive irresponsibly.
    4. Google.
    5. Running connor over.

  5. 1) PSA is talking about something more serious, where as a commercial advertises a product.
    2) Our target audience is people of all ages. It informs people about acceptance and accepting other people for whom they may be.
    3) People are the same inside and outside, but acceptance is the main goal.
    4) http://WWW.Thetrevorproject.com
    5) Going back and picking out the clips that we needed for the film.

  6. 1. A psa is not trying to sell something or promote a product it is informing people about things.
    2. My psa was targeted towards younger kids and teenagers.
    3. I was trying to portray that bullying is bad ad that bullying should stop and kids should take a stand.
    4. We mainly looked up facts on the internet at http://www.stopbullying.org
    5. Making everything line up perfectly and finding the right mood of music.

    1. A commercial is selling a product or a service, but a PSA is trying to promote an idea or cause. PSAs are typically more serrious as well.
    2. Our target audience was the friends and family of LGBT youth.
    3. We were trying to let people know that they should accept LGBT people because they are just normal humans line everyone else.
    4. Our resources were: http://www.thetrevorproject.org, plfagpheonix.org, and filipspagnoli.wordpress.con.
    5. The day after we filmed our 30 second PSA, we sat down to edit it and discovered that the camera had apparently ran out of memory while we were filming the day before. We were missing most of our shots, and were not prepared to film again, so we had to edit our 1 minute PSA into the 30 second one.

    1. PSA’s are simply informational, while commercials are trying to sell.
    2. Parents of all ages.
    3. Keep your child safe!

    5. Keeping a straight face while recording the “Candy” tip.

  9. 1. the difference between a PSA and a commercial is that a PSA is usually has a more serious tone and is about a serious topic and to get a message across. A commercial is to advertise a product can buy.
    2. the target audience for my PSA is for 16year olds and up (all drivers)
    3. Our PSA was trying to show drivers the affects of texting and driving and what its consequence could be.
    4. The resources we used were http://www.textinganddrivingsaftey.com
    5. The hardest part was keeping the video serious and showing people that this can/will happen to you if you text and drive. We wanted it to hit home.

    3.We are trying to say that there are millions of text but you only have one life.
    4. http://www.stoptextinganddriving.org
    5. the most difficult part of the shooting phase was get the camera to stay still, the most difficult part if the editing phase was getting the exact amount of time.

  11. 1. A PSA is more in a serious tone.
    2. People associated with Cyber-bullying.
    3. Cyber bullying is a serious matter.
    4. We found a site which gave some very important facts to think about.
    5. Trying to keep a serious tone.

  12. 1) the psa was more of a awareness statement to get people to do the right thing, and the commercial was just advertising a product to sell.
    2)Our target audience was mostly males in their teens or early adulthood
    3)We were trying to portray “no fighting” as our PSA
    4)WIckipedia on the “no fighting” section
    5)The hardest part of the shooting phase trying to keep a serious tone and overall theme, trying not to laugh when we shot the video. The hardest part of the editing phase was trying to edit our one min version down to the thirty second version.
