Dear Friends,

We have added an afternoon workshop on March 31st from 2:00-5:00 PM. There are a few spaces still left. Email if you'd like to come.

Original announcement:

Davia Nelson of The Kitchen Sisters is conducting a basic recording and interviewing workshop in San Francisco on Thursday, March 31 from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM (this session is now full) and 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM. The three-hour workshop is for people who want to acquire and hone their skills for an array of projects–radio, online storytelling, oral histories, audio slide shows, family histories, and other multimedia endeavors.

We will cover miking techniques, sound gathering, use of archival audio, how to make interviewees comfortable, how to frame evocative questions that make for compelling storytelling, how to listen (which is harder than it looks), how to use interviews in conjunction with images, field recording techniques, recording equipment and more. The workshop is customized to fit the projects you are working on.

People who attend come from radio, film, multimedia, newspapers, photography, oral history, historical societies, farms, music, writing, libraries, archives, web design and beyond. The groups are always lively and good contacts are made.

The fee is $115. Of course, there will be a snack. The workshops are held in Francis Coppola's historic Zoetrope building in North Beach at 916 Kearny Street (at the corner of Columbus).
