Yesterday’s workshop was a first for PYR. We have never before lent out equipment to students and this was our first time hearing the results of their field reporting. We must say, we were very impressed!
Before we could check out everyone’s audio, we listened to examples of good tape vs. bad tape and voted.
What do you think? Good tape or bad tape?
Again, we had some experts in the room to help us out, provide feedback, and generally support Philly Youth Radio! As always, we think this is awesome.
Finally, we listened to the tape recorded by Shayla, Aaliyah, and Nyseem. Each took a very different approach to the freedom of having their own recording equipment. We learned how to log tape and each student started to log their interviews. We know this process is tedious, so Yowei, Bruce, Jeanette, and myself stood at attention ready to help.
The students are keeping their equipment for another few days to finish gathering sound elements and interviews. So for the next workshop, we’ll be listening to more tape and starting to write our scripts. Until then check in for more PYR news!
