Listen: Student Work from the 2014 Making It Sing Audio Institute

2013 Hearing Is Believing

Students and faculty from the summer 2014 CDS audio institute, Making It Sing.

This summer, nine producers from across the country came to the Center for Documentary Studies for the Making It Sing Audio Institute, an intensive annual weeklong course offered through our Continuing Education program. Open to audio producers of all levels of experience, from beginners to accomplished industry professionals, the workshop helps them boil down their raw tape into carefully constructed short narrative pieces. CDS audio program director John Biewen and visiting instructor Shea Shackelford were joined by veteran editor/producer Loretta Williams to guide small-group workshopping sessions. The resulting pieces were played at a listening session on the institute’s last day. Listen to six of the audio stories below.
