Walking Out – A Reflection

This week we looked into the work of other UOW journalism stories that produced pieces on emotion. Walking Out, the audio piece created by Elliot Cameron, resonated with me as a result of his effective use of ambience, and lack there of, throughout the story. The ambient sounds effectively contributed to the mood set by the piece, and was coupled well with the interview grabs chosen for the piece. However, it was when Elliot chose to insert moments of silence that the piece was most effective. The narrative arc was chosen appropriately, allowing the listener to start the story alongside the interviewee and finish in the same position.
