A two-day workshop for people who want to make magical audio.
CATHY FITZGERALD’s school for audio storytellers, Strange & Charmed, usually takes place in her workshop in the English countryside. Now, for the first-time, her weekend workshop for beginners is coming to Boston at the PRX Podcast Garage.
Join us to learn how to develop ideas for audio documentaries and podcasts. You’ll cover interviewing, field recording techniques, basic audio editing with Reaper software, music and sound effects, and script writing. This will be a small group of eight students to make sure everyone gets plenty of help and encouragement.
Spend the weekend immersed in the basics of making audio with fun and practical exercises, all while listening to inspiring audio from the best makers in the world and having plenty of tea and cake.
The workshop will take place at the PRX Podcast Garage over two full days – Saturday, May 12 and Sunday, May 13 – starting by 9:30 a.m. and wrapping up by 5 p.m. There will be an optional group dinner nearby on Saturday night for those who can attend. Participants will need to bring a laptop with Reaper software (free trial.)
Certain books were “banned in Boston” at least as far back as 1651, when one William Pynchon wrote a book criticizing Puritanism.
