WHAT DOES IT COST?

Nothing!

WHY IS THIS HAPPENING?

Sparklab is an audio production business. We’re looking for audio makers with great story ideas who can attract a subscriber base and sponsorship. We want to grow our family of producers and see Podcast Camp as the start of a journey that leads to paid work opportunities on podcast projects.

WHAT’S GOING ON?

Over the day we will:

  • Discuss favourite podcasts;
  • Explore different approaches to story-telling and interview techniques;
  • Share recording and editing methods;
  • Pitch podcast series ideas and work on them within a group;
  • Practice interviewing and editing;
  • Create ideas for podcast intros;
  • And make connections with other audio makers– in a spirit of collaboration.

WHAT DO I BRING?

Some basic experience of recording and editing and lots of good story ideas. You’ll need your laptop, favourite audio editing software (or download Reaper for free), and something to record with (could be your phone) and we’ll get started straight away.
