Portrait in Sound
Edited to approximately one hour, entirely of the interviewee's voice, framed with their chosen music or sounds.
This is a lovingly created and highly polished production - the interview always involves some reordering and is anchored to a framework that gives a narrative flow. The strength of the interview is focused on and sharpened by removing any distractions - repetitions, ums and ahs! For easy reference, the interview will be structured into 'chapters' or tracks. Short sound portraits (for instance of young people), will be proportionally less.
Presented on three CD's, and a memory stick.
If you prefer, you can have just the interview, tidied up but largely unedited (mp3, via drop box).
You are welcome to decide after the interview if you wish us to create a Portrait in Sound.
