My favorite ladies of radio are coming to NYC! I promise you it'll be worth every penny. Details below. -Mia
The Kitchen Sisters (Davia Nelson & Nikki Silva), are holding an Interviewing & Recording Workshop in New York City on Thursday, April 18 from 10:00 am – 1:00 pm at WNYC Radio. The three-hour session is designed for people who want to acquire and hone their skills for an array of audio projects: radio, online, podcasts, storytelling, oral histories, audio slideshows, family histories, news, documentaries and other multimedia platforms.
We'll cover interviewing approaches, miking techniques, sound gathering, use of archival audio, field recording techniques, how to make interviewees comfortable, how to frame evocative questions that make for compelling storytelling, how to build a story, and how to listen (which is harder than it seems).
The workshop is customized to fit the projects you are working on. People who attend come from radio, film, multimedia, newspapers, blogs, journalism, photography, oral history, historical societies, music, writing, libraries, archives, web design, detective agencies, restaurants, health care organizations, farms and beyond. The groups are always lively and good contacts are made
The workshop will be on the 8th floor of WNYC, 160 Varick St., New York, NY. Of course, snacks will be served.
