Today’s interview went great and thankfully all of the equipment worked without any problems! When setting up the interview I wanted to make sure there was plenty of natural light in the room because light has been my enemy in the last few interviews I have done! Lisa was well able to answer all of the questions and add more information that really added to the story. One of the most amazing things that came out of today was the letters that her Dad used to send her. I could have never planned for this amazing additive to the documentary but she had so many things that she held onto over the years that it was really touching to see in real life having heard her story but also to film!
I have just finished importing all of the footage into Final Cut Pro. Lisa gave me some old VHS tapes with footage of her Dad and her when she was younger so I plan on starting the long process of going through the tapes tomorrow!
