Painting Stories With Sound: Audio Editing For Storytellers
14:30 - 16:30
Let’s face it, creating a podcast as a storyteller can get complicated. What if it didn’t have to be?
Telling a great story is your core competence, but how can you concentrate on that when you need to create a broadcast-quality podcast without a professional engineer?
In this hands-on workshop, Nick Dunkerley, Creative Director and designer of Hindenburg software will equip you with the basic skills you need to produce a high-quality podcast, including setting up a multitrack session, making your vocals crisp and clear, basic editing techniques for natural sounding conversation and some simple buff and shine techniques.
You will learn to:
⁃ Import audio from different sources and formats.
⁃ Record local and phone interviews.
⁃ Organise your raw tape.
⁃ Make basic automations (Ducks, soundbeds, edits, fades, etc).
⁃ Make advanced automations (Multitrack editing).
⁃ Set levels correctly for different formats.
⁃ Use plugins (EQ, noise reduction, compression).
⁃ Export and upload your final product.
We will work in Hindenburg Journalist PRO and all attendees will receive a 6-month trial to allow them to practice their skills afterwards. You'll need a laptop for this workshop!
Hindenburg is the only audio editor specifically designed to allow you to concentrate on telling your story without spending all your energy on the technical stuff.
Sound Design in Podcasting with Zach & Hedley
16:45 - 18:15
Zachary and Hedley take you through the world of sound design from two different angles: concept and execution. From the thoughts behind what sounds have what effect and what you need to take your audience into the world of your show, to the technical side of routing, processing and effects. Beginners, advanced podcasters and aspiring podcasters alike will get an insight into different workflows in post-production, and hopefully feel inspired to get creating!
