8 Wednesdays: Jan 15 - Mar 4

6:30 PM - 9:30 PM

Instructor: Dennis Funk


Price: $275 members, $300 non-members

In this course you'll be introduced to a number of creative, documentary-style audio formats and be encouraged to produce your own short work. In the first third of the course, we'll spend time listening, discussing, dissecting [and maybe arguing] about long- and short form audio narratives. We'll talk about story structure, interviewing techniques and how to incorporate sound design and music. In the final 2/3rds of the course, we'll get familiar with recording equipment and editing software, do a few audio experiments, and eventually produce a short documentary, reported essay or sound poem [prompts and audio provided].
