The Kitchen Sisters (Davia Nelson & Nikki Silva) are holding their Interviewing & Recording Workshop inNew York City on Wednesday, September 17 from 10am to 1pm at WNYC Radio. The three-hour session is designed for people who want to acquire and hone their skills for an array of audio projects: radio, online, podcasts, storytelling, oral histories, audio slideshows, family histories, news, investigative reporting, documentaries and other multimedia platforms.
The workshop will cover interviewing approaches, 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, what equipment to use and what to pack in your kit, how to build a story, and how to listen (which is harder than it seems).
The workshop is customized to fit the projects you are working on. People who attend come from radio, film, multimedia, newspapers, blogs, journalism, photography, oral history, historical societies, music, writing, libraries, archives, web design, detective agencies, farms, universities, restaurants, health care organizations, theaters and beyond. The groups are always lively and good contacts are made.
Of course, snacks will be served.
The workshop will be held on the 8th floor of WNYC, 160 Varick St., NY, NY. 10013.
Fee: $135.00. Register here.
