Hearing is Believing: An Audio Documentary Institute


Regular Student: $845.00


Description



In this weeklong, morning-till-night immersion in making audio documentaries, you’ll learn hands-on skills in recording and digital audio mixing; discuss issues such as the ethics of documentary work; explore varied uses for audio documentaries; and hear accomplished producers play and talk about their work in evening presentations. During the week you’ll collaborate with a fellow student to produce and edit a short audio documentary, from the first interview and sound-gathering to the final mix. The institute will be led by John Biewen along with other staff members of the Center for Documentary Studies. Examples of previous students’ projects can be found here. (40 hours)

John Biewen is audio program director at the Center for Documentary Studies. Besides teaching summer audio institutes and undergraduate courses, he produces documentaries and features for NPR, PRI, American Public Media, and other public radio audiences. Biewen has been making radio since 1983, including eight years spent producing documentaries for American RadioWorks. His work has won many honors, including two Robert F. Kennedy Awards, the Scripps Howard National Journalism Award, and the Third Coast International Audio Festival’s Radio Impact Award.
