This two-day workshop provides students with a taste of gathering interview in the field and editing that “tape” into a final product.
Students will gain experience handling mics and recording sound while honing interview skills by interviewing subjects in the field. We’ll touch on editing using software and experimenting with non-linear editing / storytelling and exporting. Class discussion will engage students in discovering what makes a good story.
Lunch is included for both days, other meals are on your own. Lodging is available on campus, private room & bath. $75/night
