The Bigger Picture: Tools for Cinematic Storytelling in Audio | May 16th,1 – 3 PM, UvA Mediastudies, 0.16

In our visual world, the audio/radio format still remains one of the most intimate and powerful forms of expression. Sound can take the listener to the moon, to the bottom of the ocean, to battlefields or the baking heat of the desert.

It can place the listener in a moment far beyond their every day.

One of audio’s most distinguishing features is the visual it creates; a visual that is different for everyone that hears it that has the potential to transport and transcend and offer a journey for the imagination.

This masterclass will unpack tools and techniques to unlocks sound’s full potential through thoughtful interviews, carefully cultivated music composition, sound design and scene setting and explore collaborations between each of these through the careful choreography of editing, that ultimately enable us to reach out, to touch and to stir something within our listeners.

  • This masterclass is suitable for people already working in audio or wanting to take their audio idea for a story to the next level.
  • Please bring a piece of audio that you would like to workshop in a group setting.
