Your 10-point assignment is to take your three audio files from last week and weave them into a mini-story using GarageBand. YOU MUST WEAR HEADPHONES. Use this story structure as a guide:
NAT SOUND (FADE IN) >> VOICEOVER INTRO >> MORE NAT SOUND >> SOUNDBITE FROM INTERVIEW >> NAT SOUND (FADE OUT)
The full assignment is on Blackboard under Assignments. Here’s a GarageBand video tutorial to get you started. Be sure to watch this video before you start editing your story — it will answer a lot of questions you may have and will make more sense of the step-by-step checklist on the official assignment.
Here are three examples of an acceptable audio editing lab (look, even a professor can do it!):
Digital Journalism alumnus Laura Rowe — SMU Isotope Lab:
Prof. Batsell — The Fountain on a Late Winter Day
Prof. Suhler — E-mailing: The Scourge of the 21st Century
As the semester goes on, please know you can always return to the GarageBand tutorial on the course blog. It’s in the right-hand rail on the home page, underneath your push post pages.
