The Sonic Society

Showcasing the very best in new Audio Drama

Blurring Sounds Waves

mira-burt-wintonick-blogMira Burt-Wintonick who was a producer for ten years on the popular CBC Radio show Wiretap has some incredible things to say about making fiction on the air. While I think her thoughts are especially valuable for those making podficts (fictionalized podcasts), her clear thoughts can be found in detail in the article Storytelling through Sound but here are a few of her notes:

  • Performance- less is more, go off script, imperfections are your friend, take charge
  • Writing- keep it tight, read aloud before, ladle out unbelievable elements, base your writing in truth
  • Sound- leave in mic noise, paint a picture
  • Develop emotional truth
  • Break the rules
