Get tickets for February 5th workshop here.
The Kitchen Sisters are hosting a two-hour live workshop on Zoom to share some interviewing, recording and podcasting skills and talk with you about what you’re working on. This session is designed for an array of audio projects—radio, podcasts, online stories, storytelling, oral histories, multimedia, family histories, news and video and film documentaries. As we all know, podcasts and audio are at the forefront right now. There has never been a better time to acquire and hone these skills.
The Workshop covers interviewing and miking techniques, sound gathering, use of archival audio, field recording, equipment, how to make interviewees comfortable, how to frame evocative questions that make for compelling storytelling, how to build a story and a narrative, how to use sound and music, how to research and how to listen (which is harder than it looks).
The Workshop is customized to fit the projects you’re working on. People who have attended in the past have come from radio, film, multimedia, detective agencies, newspapers, journalism, photography, oral history, historical societies, farms, high schools, colleges, music, ophthalmology, writing, libraries, archives, web design, restaurants, health care organizations, film, cheese-making and beyond. The groups are always lively and good contacts are made.
We’re capping it at 20 people to make sure everyone has a chance to participate, to speak about their project and the skills they want to build. We’re really sorry we can’t be serving snacks, as is our wont.
When: Friday, February 5
Time: 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM PST
Expand your skills, meet new people (in that Zoom sort of a way), support the work of The Kitchen Sisters.
Hope to see you there,
Davia & Nikki
