Below I offer a list of things that should be done and/or explored as you work on your final audio projects.
1) Think hard about the goal of your final story–what are you trying to accomplish, what story are you telling, etc. The story might change as you begin conducting interviews and collecting sounds, but you should have a flexible plan in mind as you begin working in the field.
2) Ask yourself this question: What have been some of your favorite things from other audio works (sounds used, narration, style of presentation, etc.) and how might these features play a role in your project.
3) Learn about the art of conducting audio interviews before you begin conducting interviews.
4) Think about how and what kinds of sounds you will record in addition to the interviews you conduct.
5) Make a detailed recording log of your interviews and sounds
6) Create a broad oultine/script for you story (samples shown and discussed in class). Your outline/script should be flexible but offer direction.
These sources might be of some value as you work on your outline and script.
7) Write and record narration if you will have it in the story
