Our eleventh annual introductory summer audio institute, Hearing is Believing, wrapped up on July 20 with a celebratory listening event here at the Center for Documentary Studies. Fifteen short documentaries were produced by a record twenty-six participants, who came to Durham from across the country. During the intensive seven-day course, offered through our Continuing Education program, students learn the steps of making an audio documentary while actually creating them: from field recording to shaping the story to assembling the piece using digital editing software.
