Audio basics

From our textbook, here’s a basic structure for an audio story.

Step one: Begin with a few seconds of ambient sound to set the scene.

Step two: Lead with a reporter track or compelling interview clip to introduce the story.

Step three: Weave in a series of interview clips and reporter-spoken transitions for the body of the story. Make sure you have transitions.

Step four: Add ambient sound to lend a sense of place to the storytelling.

Step five: Conclude with a reporter track or compelling interview clip that sums up the story.
