MM workshop

Hey out there,
Strange I haven't mentioned this before, but the WNPA tabbed me to teach a one-day audio slideshow workshop on Friday March 27 at Western Washington University in Bellingham and I have yet to plug it on here....
So, yeah, I'm teaching this class, here's the info:

The WNPA presents
"Taking your audio slideshow to the next level"
Fri., March 27, 9:30 am to 6 pm
Western Washington University, Bellingham, Wa.
Class cost: $65 for WNPA members & students, $90 for non-WNPA members

Award-winning photojournalist Damian Mulinix, of the Chinook Observer newspaper in Long Beach, Wa., will be leading this day-long class on how to to take your audio slideshow to the next level. The day will feature instruction in the morning and then each student will be given an assignment to shoot and record audio in the afternoon, after which they will edit and produce their own piece to present in the class for group discussion and critique. The class is open to beginners, but will concentrate less on the basics, and more of advancing quality storytelling. 

Instruction will be given on the in's and outs of Soundslides, techniques for recording better audio, editing down to what is important in both photos and audio, and asking "what makes a really good audio slideshow?" The facility we will use features a computer lab full of Mac computers preloaded with the necessary software, such as Photoshop, Soundslides and Audacity. You are also welcome to bring a laptop if you prefer. 

Damian Mulinix has been honored with more than 100 awards for excellence in photojournalism during his 12 year career,including twice receiving the WNPA's Photographer of the Year portfolio award and sweeping the multimedia category in last year's Better Newspaper Contest. He has also placed in the Best of the Photojournalism competition in the Web division and the NPPA's monthly multimedia contest.

You can register the class online HERE (it's the second one down). 

The registration deadline is this Friday, but they may keep it open a little bit longer....
...So if you're interested drop me a line,, I'd be happy to answer any questions you may have,
