How to figure out your sound! Moodboarding workshop

12:00pm - 2:30pm EST
Online Workshop
Registration Closed

You’ve figured out your show. You know the subject, format and maybe you’ve even got a host. But what should the show sound like? For any single podcast episode, countless decisions need to be made in terms of aesthetics: pacing, music choice, and audio quality. How should you use sound design to convey your values to your intended listeners? And, how should those listeners influence your design in the first place?

In this interactive workshop, veteran producer Jocelyn Gonzales will walk you through a hands-on audio mood board process and will teach you how to think about the interplay between audio production and the values of your show.

Note: Attendees will need  short clips of their show, or music and other media that has inspired or influenced their series idea. There will be an in-session, editing exercise to create a mood board, and feedback on how/if the “feel” of the show is being expressed in sound.

You will be emailed a link to the workshop two hours before it begins.
