Join us for a Podcasting Storytelling Master Class with Emmy award-winning journalist and the Vice President of Content at Wondery, George Lavender. George will explore the different ways podcasts and audio documentaries use sound to create immersive and engaging stories. This is for visual documentarians who are interested in taking their storytelling into another medium.
Cover the basics of storytelling “solely through sound”
Explore the similarities and differences between visual and audio mediums
Introduce attendees to innovative new audio work
Workshop participants’ story ideas
Attendees should come with a documentary/story project in mind that they are prepared to discuss and workshop in the class. (This could be one they have produced in another medium or one they are currently developing in another medium. This could be one they’ve completed or a developed idea)
