If it is difficult to define the documentary podcast in an immutable way, it is nonetheless a genre in its own right. Discreet on the airwaves, sound creation is nonetheless being offered a greater place in programming schedules, on radio, at festivals or on the Internet. It allows documentary filmmakers to explore new creative avenues and to expand their storytelling. In this workshop, you will learn about the different steps involved in producing a project by integrating various narrative forms. You will learn how to prepare a short interview and choose your equipment. You will also have the opportunity to produce a short form of audio documentary between the three parts of the workshop.

Workshop is given in French but questions may be asked in English.

Soraya Elbekkali

Soraya studied journalism at UQAM before quickly realizing that she felt more drawn to the community sector than to the media world. Through her career, her hobbies and her creative projects, she has always cultivated her love and fascination for stories and what they tell us about the world and about ourselves. She first explored storytelling through writing, then since 2017 through audio creation mainly with NOOR, an initiative about the social engagement of Montreal’s racialized and indigenous women, that she co-founded with 3 other young women. Soraya has also collaborated, directed and written several audio projects, including Le Déclic (co-ideation, co-writing), Cultures durables (director of two episodes), Les voix de Bordeaux-Cartierville and Les voix multiples. With the NOOR team and other professional affiliations, Soraya also creates and offers various trainings (audio creation, storytelling, project management, public speaking, etc.), which she approaches as a facilitator and revealer of competencies.
