J275 Introduction to Audio

This class teaches you the basics of audio journalism. Together we will produce a series of half-hour radio shows covering the news, arts and life in the San Francisco Bay Area. We will cover both the technical and editorial craft of producing an audio news story: how to edit and mix audio; plan and report your story; do effective audio interviews; gather great sound and scenes; write for the ear; field reporting/producing. We will also study the history of audio journalism to get inspiration and a better understanding of the craft.
