You can catch him at sound check. You can catch him on the radio every Friday. You can catch him in his Outside Lands hoodie. You cannot catch him shaving his beard. He is the omnipresent yet untraceable Mickey Capper ’13, and he has materialized long enough for me to record an important message that he brings to Wesleyan and the Middletown community:
We’re holding the first meeting of the radio storytelling group tomorrow (2/16) at 3pm in Studio B at WESU (above Red & Black). If you’re interested and can or can’t make it, send me an email at mcapper[at]wesleyan[dot]edu with a subject line that includes the word “troll.”
The intention of the group is to support each other in creating audio stories, providing constructive criticism to each other, producing a quality “audio publication” at the end of the semester (on par with This American Life, Radiolab, or at least better than whatever other college kids are doing), and reclaiming the term “troll” from the evils of the Internet on behalf of the dope creatures that live under bridges.
Tomorrow we’ll be:
Listening to some short radio docs and discussing different techniques for interviews, narration, music, and sound design;
Discussing the materials available to record and edit stories, as well as sources for advice and information on what makes a good story.
What: Radio Documentary Explorers aka Doc Ex aka .docx
Where: WESU, 45 Broad Street (above Red & Black)
When: Saturday, February 16
Time: 3 – 4pm
Contact: mcapper[at]wesleyan[dot]edu with subject line “Troll”
2000. USA. Dir: Peyton Reed. With Kirsten Dunst, Eliza Dushku. 98 min.
Brr…it’s cold in here! In “the CITIZEN KANE of cheerleader movies” (per Roger Ebert), a newly-appointed cheer captain discovers her team’s cheers were stolen from a rival school. While they fight to restore their reputation and claim victory at nationals, they just may – as in any self-respecting teen comedy – learn some lessons about integrity, friendship, love, and spirit fingers.
