Kitchen Sisters Interviewing, Recording & Podcasting Workshop
Time again for The Kitchen Sisters Interviewing, Recording & Podcasting Workshop. Davia Nelson is holding two workshops on Monday, September 16th in Francis Coppola’s historic Zoetrope building in San Francisco. This three-hour session is designed for those who want to acquire and hone their skills for an array of audio projects — podcasts, radio, online stories, storytelling, oral histories, family histories, news, documentaries and other multimedia platforms.
We cover interviewing and miking techniques, sound gathering, original, imaginative story structure, use of archival audio, field recording techniques, recording equipment, how to make interviewees comfortable, how to frame evocative questions that make for compelling storytelling, how to build a story, how to find your voice and how to listen (which is harder than it looks). We also talk podcasting. Serious talk about getting your podcast going and giving it a real sound.
The workshop is customized to fit the projects you are working on. People who have attended in the past have come from radio, film, multimedia, detective agencies, podcasting, newspapers, journalism, photography, oral history, historical societies, farms, music, ophthalmology, writing, libraries, archives, beer brewing, web design, restaurants, health care organizations, film, cheese-making and beyond. The groups are always lively and good contacts are made.
Sign up for one session on the 16th, whatever time works best for you.
Morning Workshop: 10:00 – 1:00pm
Afternoon Workshop: 2:00 – 5:00 pm
The workshop is in North Beach at 916 Kearny St. Of course, snacks will be served.
Expand your skills, meet new people, support the work of The Kitchen Sisters.
