While working for 1 to 1 Agency of Engagement, they asked me to document a community workshop they were holding in the Bertrams community in Town. They were interviewing the residents of Bertrams and I was recording as many interviews as I could during the workshop. During the two day workshop one of the interviewees really caught my attention. His name is Israel. I had been wanting to work on a short film-documentary for some time and as soon as I met him I knew he would be an amazing interviewee for my documentary. This is his story.
Difficulties: The project was not an easy one as I had very limited equipment to work with. The most difficult part was the sound as I only had the Rode Video Mic Pro to work with. This meant I had to do a lot of audio post production work on Israel's audio recording to remove most of the background noise as he felt more comfortable sitting outside.
I applied a fair amount of EQ treatment and some automation in order to clean it up as best I could. Ideally I would have liked to have had a lavalier microphone and transmitter pack with me which would have given me a clearer signal of Israel's voice in which case I would have used the Video Mic Pro as a supporting microphone for background sounds.
