Additional Workshops, talks, panels etc  for 2016  


Radio Theatre Workshop are running a radio theatre workshop…  which is not confusing at all…

Christopher Jarvis (Lave Radio, Escape Velocity) from The Radio Theatre Workshop brings a workshop designed to give an introduction to full-cast audio drama production. The session will begin with volunteers recording roles in a short script and learning live foley (sound effects skills), moving on to editing and post-production and music scoring. Volunteers will (with luck!) have a short audio piece of their own creation to take away at the end of the session! Workshop features at a glance:

* Microphone and recording environment setup10325624_10155803199600291_6890003472370307983_n
* Foley (live prop sound effects) tutorial
* Performance coaching
* Scene editing
* Post-production sound effects
* Soundtrack scoring.

This will be a hands-on session and everybody will get the chance to try their hand at each of the roles.
