YASS! presents a program of online masterclasses, running from December 2020 to June 2021. The series is meant to give a wider community of people interested in audio production, the possibility to listen to diverse perspectives, voices from different latitudes, aesthetics, genres, methodologies, hints into audio storytelling.
What does it mean to write for the ears? How can we go beyond verbal narration? How do I blend fiction and non-fiction to tell a true story? How can sensitive materials be used ethically? Are personal stories political?
Each masterclass will provide participants (small groups to foster interaction and dialogue) with tools and behind the scenes to learn how to break formats and expectations, how to surprise and find one’s voice. We learn how to make sound-rich stories by listening: YASS! guest speakers come from diverse backgrounds and we suggest you to follow the program through and through.
YASS! Digital Masterclasses Program features Catalina May and Martín Cruz, Ann Heppermann, Maartje Duin, Charo Calvo, Brit Jensen and Axel Kacoutié.
