Product Placement Thursday....

Today we are introducing a new aspect of our Twilight Project - Product Placement Thursday!!!! Say what???? Well it is a known fact that part of the whole movie making business involves a little thing called product placement. This is where a character will reveal his deepest feelings to the girl he likes while drinking a pepsi (the pepsi can is facing the camera proudly in all its consumerism glory). Companies pay for these advertisements. My students and I were joking around today about this phenomenon ( we are currently wrapping up our study of mass media), and wondered what sort of products would be "placed" in a movie like Twilight. So we came up with one, JFK Anti-Wrinkle Cream. I filmed it quickly at the end of rehearsal (we are putting up a play we wrote about intolerance next week) and decided to post it for all to enjoy. We hope to post one a week. Remember we are a goofy bunch, and our spoofs are out of the deepest Twilight love. Please let us know what you think. If we get enough of a response, we will post one every Thursday...taking suggestions from you...as well as asking you to make your own!!!! Don't forget to let your fellow Twilight fans and your favorite Twilight websites know about our little venture over here!!!!
