Is Radio Relevant in My Portfolio?
Neilson reported that more people are tuning into radio than ever. A whopping 245 million listen at least once a week. Audio in your portfolio helps differentiate your work, and showcase your long form writing talent.
MixCloud's Ben Laurence shared - People say "oh radio is dead and dying. Actually, radio as content is exploding. But the way that we consume it is changing. All the big [streaming] players: Spotify, Apple, are looking at radio as a means of differentiation… The content is of extreme value to the industry and to consumers. Radio as content is essentially long-form audio: it could be anything: music, news, stories.”
This course will focus on writing and producing an audio or radio script. You’ll hear a lot of examples and talk through the process, while you're writing for audio. You can choose to extend a campaign you have already started, polish up an existing script, or create something new. On the last session, your work (including voice talent and sound) will be produced at Studio West in San Diego. Even though we're working online, we'll bring you into the actual recording via a Google MEET. Or, if you're local, you're welcome to attend the session.
This is a 4-session, 4-week online course. Video-conference meeting are included with the instructor, Eric Mayse.
