YASS! Masterclass: Sara de Monchy – How to make exciting youth audio

How to make exciting youth audio is YASS! 2022 4° masterclass.
It was recorded in Florence, on December 9th, on the occasion of the Listening Kids seminar.

Sara de Monchy is a theater and podcast director. She graduated from the Royal Theatre Academy in Maastricht, and has several successful theater productions to her credit. Her love for fantasy, audio and theater comes together in her well acclaimed podcast Sara’s Mysteries, in which she solves mysteries with kids.

The podcast was nominated for different prizes and is a binge worthy ritual for many Dutch families! In this interactive workshop, with the help of raw material, failed and successful scenes, Sara retraced the steps she took as she created Sara’s Mysteries. We discover the importance of ‘excitement’ for youth, how to get into the head of elusive 11-year-olds and how to make them talk freely about their biggest questions. We also find out where you really can’t get away with making audio for children, and why ‘the car’ is a returning location in her podcast.

After this workshop, you will have a fresh ground for creating your own podcast for children!
