The Audiovisual Design as a methodological option for radio production
This article presents the Audiovisual Design as a workflow of processes for planning the creation, production and analysis of radio programs. In the contemporary digital media environment, institutionalized forms of radio are being challenged by the introduction of new technologies. The new available tools and new audience behaviors require radio stations, producers and researchers to become aware of productions that can address both the maintenance of the radio’s characteristics and the incorporation of the emerging possibilities. Using simulated and real examples, this essay proposes the Audiovisual Design as a possible and viable tool in the development and study of media-convergent and interactive radio productions.
