Move Over Mrs. Doubtfire, we've got Mrs. Palmer

Remember hilarious Mrs. Doubtfire?

Meet... Mrs. Palmer.

This project is the result of the second COM. Tech Video Challenge of Communications Technology 30 (Grade 12). These challenges are mini-projects assigned to students that correlate with the instructor's specifications. This video challenge is one of the total three that we would encounter throughout the duration of the course. This specific challenge was to create a commercial that is approximately one minute in length and advertised a snack item of your choosing out of the school's vending machines. As another homage to my Grade 11 production studio, "Muppet*Vision Productions", we decided to use the name at the end of the credits.

I decided to chose a baked, sea salt and vinegar flavored pita chip snack called, "Mrs. Palmer's Pantry Pita Chips". Then to present the ad, I thought it would be humorous to create a spin-off of Robin Williams' character, "Mrs. Doubtfire". If you are a Disney enthusiast and listen carefully you will hear a rendition of "It's a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow" from Walt Disney's "Carousel of Progress" and "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" from Walt Disney's "Mary Poppins", on the background soundtrack.

Find your comfy spot on the sofa, pay close attention to Mrs. Palmer, and for the love of all things heavenly, please grab a paper and pencil so you can copy down this intensive recipe... or Mrs. Palmer will get you!
