New Kitchen Sisters Recording & Interviewing Workshop – Wednesday, July 23, SF

Hey Bay Area folks. DO NOT MISS this workshop taught by the Kitchen Sisters' Davia Nelson. She is the master. Spread the word.


Time again for The Kitchen Sisters Recording & Interviewing Workshop. Davia Nelson is holding a new one on Wednesday, July 23 at Francis Coppola's historic Zoetrope building in San Francisco. This three-hour session is designed for those who want to acquire and hone their skills for an array of audio projects — radio, podcasts, online stories, storytelling, oral histories, audio slideshows, family histories, news, documentaries, and other multimedia platforms.

In The Workshop, Davia covers interviewing and micing techniques, sound gathering, use of archival audio, field recording techniques, recording equipment, 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 looks).

The workshop is customized to fit the projects you are 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, 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.

Afternoon Workshop: 2:00 PM – 5:00 PM / Cost: $125.00. The workshop is in North Beach at
916 Kearny St. Of course, snacks will be served.
