This series of workshops will develop hands-on skills related to audio documentary storytelling. We will be going through exercises of interviewing, text editing, audio editing and audio design. The goal of this session is to develop skills and to learn from mistakes in a low-stake environment. There will also be more time to focus on the needs of individual projects.

Please note, although this workshop builds on techniques from Audio Documentary Storytelling 1, you do not have to have taken ADS1 to participate. This is an intermediate level workshop. Expect weekly homework (2hrs). At the end of the 4 weeks, each participant will present their final project: a short sound creation.

Pascal Huỳnh first got into podcasting by having a topic he was passionate about. He created an 8-episode show called Out of the Fog which aired on CKUT 90.3FM in 2016. Being his first audio project, he learnt from the many beginner mistakes he made. Since then he has made an audio documentary piece produced by CBC and is currently working on a feature-length film documentary. He teaches film animation at Champlain College and at Salette College where he enjoys designing courses in which students are engaged by hands-on exercises and analytical thinking.

Live and participatory, these video conference workshops are limited to 4-8 participants, to ensure everyone gets the most out of each session. Participants are expected to attend all four weekly sessions.
