This week, you will be working to edit an excerpt from your first interview, using Audacity or Pro Tools. Please construct a three to five minute piece, based on two different sections of your interview. You do not need to construct a narrative. We are working on our editing skills and also selecting audio for the class to comment on. You may choose to pull a section you are proud of or troubled by, or a section that most embodies the value of the interview, to you.

Homework:

-Audio byte from interview [editing exercise] (post to Blackboard)
-Peer Review/swap, due October 8. Please comment on rapport, as well as:
-open ended questions
-silence
-audio quality
-themes
-strengths
-lost opportunities
-when does the beginning break into the middle
-handling of the end
