Next up – the narration

Yesterday I got together with my editor Brian Golden to record the voice over narration for the documentary. A relatively easy task (you might think) but nevertheless a very important one. This allows Brian to put together the clips based on my script, thus creating the story for me to review and tweak from there.

Sure, recording ones voice can be easy, but I certainly had a few flubs that I needed to redo a few times. I say this is relatively easy because the difficult part is yet to come when I am film a couple onscreen narrative portions. I will have no script for this and foresee this being slightly (sarcasm) harder than reading words into a microphone.

Recording the narration gave me additional reality that I am truly in the homestretch. Once Brian edits the clips with narration, it will give us a clear picture of what is still potentially needed — additional specific photos, etc.Still, I seem to still be collecting photos and even old footage clips. I came across silent film footage from 1935 just this morning!
