Scenes / Brett Ascarelli One of the things that makes a radio story or a podcast memorable are scenes - when you hear something that's actually happening on tape, rather than being re-told after the fact. Some radio producers tell stories about themselves, doing so by embarking on quests or missions of some sort, a set up which allows them to tape drama as it unfolds around them in real time. In this workshop, we'll listen to some scenes, and then, we'll turn an ordinary walk into an opportunity for collecting recordings of scenes. Come prepared to interact with people you don't know yet. Brett Ascarelli has worked as a public service radio producer for nearly a decade at Swedish Radio. She also produces independent audio documentaries, which have been nominated and short-listed for awards. In her independent projects, Brett is particularly interested in bringing artistic methods to storytelling. For example, her podcast The Assignment Bureau concerns people who **** challenges in their lives through creative assignments. She holds a Masters in Fine Arts in Performing Arts and Media from the Stockholm Academy of Dramatic Arts. She also holds an M.F.A. in Experience Design from Konstfack University College of Arts, Crafts and Design, in Stockholm, and she did her Bachelor's at Duke University, in Durham, North Carolina.
