Podcast Camp: Recording, Interviewing and Editing 2018
2 x Saturdays: 24 February & 3 March, 10am-4pm
If you’re keen to start or develop a podcast, this course will give you the skills to whip your ideas into shape. Aimed at novice and emerging podcast makers looking to create a new podcast project or develop their existing ideas and audio production skills, this course offers the opportunity to learn and practise recording and editing.
Audio-whisperers Kate Montague and Belinda Lopez will workshop your planned or existing podcast, helping you to understand your audience and the best format for your ideas. From there, you’ll develop a skill-based toolkit to get started, with an in-depth look at recording, interviewing, and editing spread over two days, and time to practice in between sessions.
Expected Learning Outcomes
- Shape your idea for audio format
- Learn the production skills you need to get started
- Understand the range of recording equipment and editing software that’s available, and what will best suit your needs
Bring your own fully charged laptop with Audacity (free audio-editing software) downloaded and ready to use.
