Okies Discussing Ochs

For the most part, I really enjoyed this project in that it pushed to learn new skills and get more comfortable with myself. We wrote a script for the interview which was a huge help when it came time to record. Because I practiced and a good feel for what I was going to say I was a little more comfortable in front of the mic. I do wish I had loosened up a little more, so that it sounded more conversational and less like I was reading a script. I do count not sounding like a robot or whispering a win though.

The editing side was not as easy as I had hoped. There is a define learning curve to it. It takes some time figure out the flow of the interview and by that time things have already been cut and moved, which is frustrating. Knowing those things will take some time to learn. Adding in the music was not an easy task. We figured out how to get it in and fade it, but we were not able to get it before we started talking. I guess somehow in the editing process we blocked ourselves from being able to do that?

Overall, I’m happy with what we created and feel a bit more confident going in to this next project.

    You forgot to give this a title, which made it hard to figure out how to comment on it. You might go back, add a title, and categorize the post (ala our discussions about the import of metadata to searchability and presentation). In re the fade problem, could be you need to increase the size of the timeline so you could fine tune; of course, could be other things, too, so you’ll have to show me. Great point about not coming off as “stiff”–that’s a challenge for both audio and video.
