Maybe you're the talent that we're looking for?
At Nordic Podcast Academy's Podcast Camp you'll get an intense introduction to what sound really is - and how to record it. From there, we move on to concept development of the podcasts or of the story you want to tell and publish.
As you start recording, you'll learn the importance of sound in a narrative, and we'll practice interview techniques- while you're doing it.
As we constantly alternate between classes and your work on your podcast, you'll learn about the hosts various roles and develop your speaking voice, editing skills, storytelling techniques, dramaturgy as well as interview techniques.
The Podcast Camp ends with a "radio cinema", where we'll listen and feedback each others' productions.

With the placement in Struer, the Nordic Podcast Academy becomes part of an already international development and sound environment around Sound Hub Denmark, where sound is at the center, and where we work with innovative speaker technology, sound experiences and business development - among other things. A production environment for sound artists will be available around the Sound Art Lab, right next door to Sound Hub Denmark.
