Good Audio Review
- Assignment: find three good examples of audio stories
- In class: in pairs, agree on one story that everyone should hear. Why? Type the story title and URL in a comment on this blog post (with names of the partners).
- We’ll review some of these in class.
Creating Your First Story
NOTE: use Zamzar.com or iTunes to covert the WAV file if LAME library is not installed in Audacity.
Upload to your finished audio file to your Dropbox public folder and email me the link.
- Name the file like this: “yourfirstnameLastinitial-first-audio.mp3” (Last name initial needed only if there are two or more people with the same first name)
- No spaces in the file name!
- All lower case (except for Last name initial)
- Put “COM466 First Audio Story” in the subject line for email filtering.
- You will complete a proof of concept audio story by end of class on Wednesday. This means you need to get your story idea and interviews done before class on Monday! We will have lab time to work on the stories.
- Examples of final stories from last year’s class.
- For Friday Follows this week, look for photographers or radio reporters. Remember: one blog post and five separate tweets. You must include #ff and #com466 *and* there has to be a space in front of the # sign!
- Read and come to class prepared to discuss:
- The Rise of Indy 3-D Cinema (NPR Interns – story is text, one photo, audio)
- Education Not Deportation (NPR Interns – story is text, narrated slide show)
- Commentary: The Server’s Dilemma (NPR Interns – story is text, illustrated narration includes infographic)
