Radio drama workshop at DR

- a three day exploration of the art and craft of making story led audio drama.

The purpose of the workshop is to write, record, edit and post-produce a series of short story led audio dramas.

The workshop will be led by Richard Shannon.

In collaboration with DR (Danish Broadcasting Corporation).

Day 1: Preparation Day
Richard will play a range of clips from audio dramas that illustrate the dramatic possibilities of audio. Close attention will be paid to the construction of strong story lines for short dramas.

Richard will run a class in the recording studio designed to give participants an overview of how to act and direct for the microphone, the use of spot effects and costume.

He will then set a number of writing exercises designed to stimulate ideas. Richard will also distribute examples of British radio play scripts.

The participants will be divided into production groups and will be invited to discuss themes and ideas for a five minute audio drama.

The groups will end the day having written a complete first draft of the play they will record on day 2. The drafts will include details of what sound effects both live and recorded that will be needed. The groups will also have to consider the use of music and ensure that they have the music they need for the post-production day (day 3).

Day 2: Recording Day
The groups will rehearse and then record their audio dramas.
Once each drama is recorded the groups will spend the rest of the day editing the material.

Day 3: Post-production Day
The groups will spend the day in edit booths, refining the edit and then mixing in sound backgrounds and music.

At 4pm, all the audio dramas will be played back and discussed. Audio files of the finished work will be sent to all the participants.
