Advanced Radio Production and Broadcasting - MAS337

This unit provides an advanced understanding of diverse radio forms and their production as they are emerging in the contemporary online/broadcast context. Students work across a range of professional roles contributing their skills and output to either a series of programs composed of a variety of radio forms (features, comedy, talkback, reportage, discussion, live music, performance) or towards a live special event program. Students also work towards an online presentation with additional features (image, text, podcasts). The workshop program comprises production meetings (modelled on industry practice) and the acquisition of advanced audio production skills extending students' previous knowledge and experience. Specialist studio/audio production is taught using Protools and appropriate other softwares. Students also acquire advanced skills in voice production and microphone techniques for music, field and actuality recording (also applicable to film and other audio-visual forms). Lectures extend students' knowledge of critical, formal and technical developments in radio and related audio media (production and performance), including recent audio-rich storytelling forms emerging online and in new public and cultural institutional contexts. Principally drawing on Australian examples, the unit also explores new initiatives in radio and audio-rich forms internationally.
