MDIA Radio Drama Internship with WOUB to Continue in Fall 2013

Over the past year I’ve been fortunate to lead two wonderful teams of students in internships between Ohio University’s Media Arts & Studies WOUB Public Media, and I’m pleased to announce that after an award-winning spring semester we will be continuing this.

Needless to say, if you are a Junior or Senior interested in broadcast audio or sound design, are a self-starter, and have previous studio or sound design experience then we want you to join our mini production company to create an all new radio drama (more info).

Curious what’s been created by past production teams? In Spring 2013 our amazing team of students produced The Ransom of Red Chief by O Henry and the results are amazing! We’re particularly pleased as this project won a prestigious First Place award within the Media Arts & Studies Category at the Ohio University Student Expo 2013!

Interested students will work independently and alongside WOUB mentors to recording vocal actors, design and record sound effects, and much more.

For Fall 2013, we’re planning on recording another one of the great works by Beatrix Potter, though pre-production is currently in early stages. Completed radio dramas will be aired not only on WOUB-AM but also published on WOUB.org, providing valuable production credits with a widely respected media outlet.

If you are interested in this unique opportunity, please contact Kyle P. Snyder, Visiting Assistant Professor of Media Arts & Studies, by Wednesday, September 4th at snyderk@ohio.edu. Several positions are currently available including Student Project Manager, all which will be filled on a first come, first served basis so act fast!
