Sparklab Productions ‘Podcast Camp’
Sparklab Productions are hosting a 2 day ‘Podcast Camp’ for talented audio storytellers who want to help put Manchester on the map for podcasting.
Please see below for more details:
WHO’S IT FOR?
Talented audio storytellers who want to collaborate with Sparklab and help us put Manchester on the podcasting map.
The Podcast Camp takes place between 10am – 6pm on Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 February 2018.
WHAT’S GOING ON?
Over the two days we will:
- discuss favourite podcasts;
- learn from guest speakers, including an experienced audio doc maker, an award-winning sound-designer and an audio-entrepreneur and podcaster;
- explore different approaches to story-telling and interview techniques;
- share recording and editing methods;
- practice interviewing and editing;
- pitch podcast series ideas,
- 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.
WHAT DOES IT COST?
Nothing: this first weekend is free.
Bring your own lunch and we’ll provide tea, coffee and refreshments on both days.
HOW DO I BOOK?
Email firstname.lastname@example.org with your full contact details, a brief paragraph about yourself and why you want to make podcasts. You can attach a CV.
WHY IS THIS HAPPENING?
Sparklab are an audio production company who create audio stories and content for companies, charities, the arts sector and all the BBC audio networks. We design, write and create long and short form packages for corporate and public sector clients. We make features, documentaries and drama and podcasts – and we win awards too. We work with world-class journalists, presenters, writers and actors.
We’re looking for audio makers with great story ideas who can attract a big 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.
