Time management and editing skills - two essentials in producing thorough, timely radio broadcasts! Workshop 10 brought new deadlines to this season of Youth Media. Our student producers will be out in the field conducting interviews for their final pieces over their upcoming spring break. When they return, they will begin logging tape, transcribing, writing their scripts and isolating their audio.


In addition to deadlines, this week we focused on the basics of editing in Reaper (our awesome, free editing software): zooming, dragging, splitting, volume, and fades. We also discussed keeping our audio tracks organized by type: narration, interview clips, ambient sound, and music! Organization pays when you've got that many moving parts in one audio project. We look forward to listening to some good tape when school resumes.
