Moving from Negus’ own practice of creative writing and first-person voice-over monologue videos, this workshop will introduce traditional voice-over recording techniques as well as alternative tactics for incorporating voice into independent artist projects. Attendees will then work in small groups to develop narratives and record them using their chosen method. The finalized, edited recording will then be paired with found footage and compiled to create a collaged, exquisite voice-over video corpse. Ultimately, this workshop will focus on how film and video artists (or enthusiasts) can use creative writing and various forms of sound in their own projects.
No materials or experience needed but bring your laptop (if you have one) or a flash drive. BONUS if you have audio/video editing software BUT NOT NECESSARY!
