2020-05-01 (F) Weekly Summary

I started a new podcast, but it is much different from 2 Cyborgs and a Microphone. This one is a group of improv performers who wanted some practice and socialization. My goal is to learn some improvisation from them and get more editing experience. The show was my friend's idea, and I was happy to help.
First recording session sound

All of my editing experience helped pare down our session because we spent a lot of time chatting about how to format the show, but we didn't have a name yet. I saved my old macros for an off-hand keyboard, and they helped immensely.
Editing on the first session

In the first recording, we played a part game called Funemployed. In the game, one person conducts mock interviews with the rest of the players who must enact ridiculous, "Qualifications." It heightens the game if the interviewer doesn't know the quirks, so I built a cardholder from plastic around my apartment.
Introducing props

I made some rudimentary intro music for the show with Synth One and GarageBand, which were iOS apps on my iPad. I think I just wanted to play with music for the evening, and I do not regret it.
I tried making some music

In the second episode, we had a new participant. The nature of improv makes adding and subtracting folks easy. He only recorded with us for part of the session, and the rest of the games continued without a problem.
Recording cast of the second episode

After the second session, I wanted to start editing, but when I looked at the two-hour clips, I decided to start by extracting the game portions to streamline things the next time I sat down to do the editing. I also snipped out some bloopers for the cast to enjoy.
