Today, I had an appointment with the professor to report the current progress of the video essay. I informed him that it will be a presentation style video essay which uses interviewee’s audio and I will be voice over through the questions and arguments. The telephone interview was conducted with Gennaro Castaldo, Director of Communications at British Phonographic Industry (BPI) in relation to “Funding Issues Affecting the Digital Culture/Creative Industries”.
At the moment, I have completed the transcripts of the interview and halfway through the scripts. The professor suggested that I should be aware that the music industry is different to other digital media sectors in some ways although other things may be common. Also I need to ensure that the video are within the 12 minutes plus 10% is 13:20 when it comes to video editing.
