As I’m entering my fourth year of the Digital Communications program at Humber College, I have to start thinking about and planning a capstone project; my “thesis” demonstrating the variety of skills I’ve learned during my time in post-secondary.
For mine, I’m considering this:
FOR YOUR SAFETY is an upcoming audio vérité podcast, dabbling in social and economic issues, conspiracy and oppression, and of course, the supernatural. When the project is complete, we’ll be looking at 5-6 hour long episodes, accompanied by several websites and other pieces of content, all with the aim of creating the most authentic story and world possible. The goal here is to make the listener question whether this story is in fact true, and having all sorts of websites and materials available for discovery is going to enhance that. I’m big on engagement, and I want this to be an extremely participatory podcast.
