Deborah Dudgeon and David Prest’s popular and inspiring one-day course gets you started with some of the key techniques of understanding good documentary making for radio. They’ll cover editorial essentials such as spotting an idea, building a narrative structure, finding the right contributors, using sound creatively, creating a big opening, avoiding the pitfalls. David deconstructs a doc scene by scene and there’ll also be top tips on pitching. There’ll be inspiring audio, analysis of good technique, and exploration of the form. As one of their 2016 delegates put it “Hands down, one of the best course I’ve ever been on”.
