October 26 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm$20.00
Improv in Podcasting: A Panel/Workshop
Learn to use improv to create content in the increasingly popular medium of podcasting: giving permanence to creations that are typically gone for good. By using collaboration and Yes, And you can easily build up and flesh out your ideas by yourself or with other improvisers. In this panel/workshop we’ll talk about getting started in podcasting, how to find a form or idea to run with, and we will workshop your ideas on the spot: launching into them and giving you a foundation to build off of so you can leave ready to record.
Workshop length: 2 hours
Tickets: $20 online before 10/26, $22 at the door
Workshop limit: 25 students
