Share A Coke!

Very few students embrace a project the way that Allison Polk embraced creating a series of three commercials in Time Based Media for Coca-Cola. By utilizing the company's "Share A Coke" campaign she was able to tell empathetic stories that were relatable, heart felt and very well written and produced.

 

Doin' it in Your Crocs

Collen Layton was a student in Time Based Media in Spring of 2021 when he was challenged to develop three commercials for one brand. Nobody knew Collen's dry sense of humor combined with his love of Croc shoes would result in such a fun project.

 

Watch, Out

Tate Moseley, TROY University Softball all star, knows hard work all too well. In this three part commercial series for Apple she tells a story of motivation and self discipline that many of our students face both in and outside of the classroom.
