My first recorded segment – alone!

2 Feb

Hi folks!

Well, I went at it alone yesterday. I took the plunge, and recorded my first-ever media and pop culture segment, all by myself. I had to lay out my papers so they didn’t rustle, and hold the recorder at a level distance, and try not to trip all over my words… it was fun! After importing and grappling through a few Garage Band technical difficulties, I managed to do a dry edit and send them along to Lola for refining – after all, she’s the expert. I’m thinking next week she’ll show me how to add music to my own edits.
