My audio story details why I hope to make a living of sports reporting and/or broadcasting some day. I have always had a passion for sports and writing and seek to combine these two interests into a successful and invigorating career for myself in the near future. I would love to cover local Seattle-area sports but would jump at the chance to work for a big, prestigious company like ESPN and put myself on the national stage in some capacity.
For my audio, I simply recorded myself narrating a story as to why and how I came about selecting this profession as my future career and what exactly I’d like to do. I also recorded audio of an opening, intros to my audio interviews, and a conclusion. I interviewed my parents and my sister for audio clips but only have my Dad and sister in the draft posted above.
I like how my draft turned out and see it as practically a finished product. The final time of my draft is 3:36, obviously just 24 seconds shy of the maximum requested time length of four minutes. I am however considering adding opening and closing music tracks with fade-ins and outs just like we learned in the tutorials for the Audition program. I may also re-think my transitions a bit in the final draft.
Overall, I hope I was able to tell a cohesive enough story with my audio clips and interviews. Putting everything together was a massive struggle but ultimately rewarding in the end.
