Interviewing & Recording Workshops, March 27

Interviewing & Recording Workshops, March 27

Time again for The Kitchen Sisters Recording and Interviewing Workshops. Davia Nelson of The Kitchen Sisters is holding two workshops on Wednesday, March 27 in San Francisco. These three-hour sessions are designed for people who want to acquire and hone their skills for an array of audio projects–radio, online, podcasts, storytelling, oral histories, audio slide shows, family histories, news, documentaries, and other multimedia platforms.

In the workshops, Davia will cover interviewing, miking techniques, sound gathering, use of archival audio, field recording techniques, how to make interviewees comfortable, how to frame evocative questions that make for compelling storytelling, how to build a story, and how to listen (which is harder than it looks).

The workshop is customized to fit the projects you are working on. People who attend come from radio, film, multimedia, newspapers, journalism, photography, oral history, historical societies, farms, music, writing, libraries, archives, web design, detective agencies, restaurants, health care organizations, film and beyond. The groups are always lively and good contacts are made.

The workshops are held in Francis Coppola’s historic Zoetrope building in North Beach at 916 Kearny St. Of course, snacks will be served.

Morning Workshop: 10:00 AM – 1:00 PM (REGISTER HERE)
Afternoon Workshop: 2:30 PM – 5:30 PM (REGISTER HERE)

Each session is $120. (The same workshop is given in the morning and the afternoon)

Expand your skills, meet new people, support the work of The Kitchen Sisters.

See you there.
