The Kitchen Sisters Interviewing and Recording Workshop is legendary. Held often at Francis Coppola’s historic Zoetrope building in San Francisco and has been given across America and around the world. KCRW, WNYC, KQED and coming next month Marfa Public Radio are just a few of the public radio stations that have brought us into conduct workshops. We’ve also held them in London, Dublin, Berlin, Moscow, and Tel Aviv. Along with interviewing and recording, our workshops also focus on podcasting and storytelling.
To plan a workshop for your organization, contact at firstname.lastname@example.org or 415-788-0290.
The Workshop covers interviewing and mic’ing techniques, sound gathering, 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 pitch a story, how to create a podcast, how to listen.
The session is customized to fit the projects you are working on. So come ready to talk about your stories and ideas too. People who have attended in the past have come from radio, film, multimedia, detective agencies, farms, music, newspapers, journalism, photography, oral history, historical societies, ophthalmology, writing, libraries, archives, web design, restaurants, health care organizations, cheese-making and beyond.
The groups are always lively and surprising and good contacts are made.
