FAQ: WEEKLONG BEGINNERS INTENSIVE

 
 

How much experience do I need to apply?

No experience is necessary. The intensive is geared towards beginners.If you have experience in audio/podcasting/radio/journalism/etc., you may still get a lot of value out of the workshop. However, you may want to contact Alex about whether the workshop would be a good fit for you before applying.

How big is the class size?

The class will be no larger than 10 people.

What do I need to bring and/or budget for?

Participants will be responsible for their own housing, transportation, laptop computer, recording kit (rentals are available with for a small fee and refundable deposit), and a copy of Hindenburg audio editing software (a 30-day trial is available if you don't want to commit to buying).

What do I do if I don't have a recording kit?

You can buy one, I recommend this one. If you don’t have one, you can rent a kit for a very low cost. Rentals will be no more than $50 for a full kit for the week, depending the available kits.

What do I do if I don't have housing?
