The People vs Interview Transcripts: The Case For & Against
In this week’s show the court of Inside The Edit is in session. On trial are those sometimes likeable, sometimes despised editor’s companions… The Interview Transcripts. Do we like them? Are they useful? What is the case from the defence and the prosecution?
I talk about how a seemingly offhand comment a director made to me in one of my first documentary edits completely reshaped my view on editing and sent me on a fascinating investigation into on screen human behaviour.
The Map Is Not the Territory
Alfred Korzybski’s famous dictum is applicable to so many different fields of inquiry but I saw a strong connection to a very specific part of the craft of editing… Interview Transcripts.
It’s a deep show packed full of creative theory and I know you’ll enjoy it.
