Be forewarned, this one-week workshop is intense. It is not a radio vacation. The Transom Traveling Workshop at Interlochen will provide a remarkably solid introduction to the basics and some advanced elements of radio story planning, structure, writing, fieldwork and digital audio editing. By the end of the week, you will produce, from scratch, a four-minute profile of a creative resident of northwest Michigan. Interlochen Public Radio will consider the piece for broadcast.
We are looking for beginning producers with a preference for those with some experience under their belt. Maybe you are a dabbler. Or, you have produced and aired a story, or two, or three. You may have basic knowledge about digital audio editing workflow. Perhaps you host a podcast, and you are already familiar with digital audio editing and fieldwork. You are looking for a learning experience that will help you understand how to produce sound-rich stories with a strong narrative. If that is you, sign up for this workshop.
The Transom Traveling Story Workshop at Interlochen is a collaboration between Transom.org, Interlochen College of Creative Arts and Interlochen Public Radio (IPR). Rob Rosenthal is the lead instructor. Rob will be assisted by IPR’s News Director, Peter Payette.
Tuition includes a copy of Hindenburg Journalist editing software and access to field recording gear. You will need to bring a laptop computer.
Additional costs include housing, food and transportation to and from the workshop as well as transportation during the workshop for fieldwork.
