Intrested in podcasting or adding audio to your slide shows? Victoria Fenner is the expert. I’ve taken a couple of her workshops and they are excellent investments in time and money.
Here’s the notice for her new one in Toronto:
Podcasting and Beyond
An Introduction to Multimedia on the Internet
September 22, 2009 – 1-4:30 pm
A Workshop by Sound Out Multimedia Training
One of the easiest ways to get started in multimedia production is by doing a podcast. It’s a great way to get comfortable with the technology; develop interview and voicing skills; putting together a production from start to finish; and distributing it through Social Media.
Podcasting and Beyond will introduce you to the basics of podcast production. We’ll focus mostly on audio, and also on how to create simple visual and sound productions such as slideshows with easy soundtracks. We’ll also talk about getting good sound for video .. because everybody knows what it’s like to look at pictures without hearing what the person on the screen is saying.
This workshop will focus on:
* simple audio production techniques – recording and editing
* turning your idea into a story, interview or feature
* combining pictures with still photos (audio slideshows)
* getting good sound from your video camera
* getting your production out to the world via social media
