Using Sound as a Storytelling Tool (Randy Thom): Oscar®-winning sound designer Randy Thom will talk about his approach to audio for film, which applies also to radio. He'll discuss the psychology of sound: how it affects us emotionally and how to tailor sounds to perform certain kinds of jobs in storytelling. He'll also explore the topic of authentic sounds versus stylized sounds, and the importance of focusing the audience's attention with sound.
