Lessons from the Soundslide Proof of Concept

My main goal in turning my interview with Wes Miles into a soundslide was to see if I could take a music-related story and make it somewhat compelling. I found cutting the interview down easy — I also found that it flowed pretty nicely. The photography was much more difficult. I had to use a few courtesy photos and I have some shots that are just ‘okay’ to me. So I decided to get creative. The middle section of the soundslide is filled with rotating CDs that took a ton of time to shoot and put together in the soundslide program. As for any music I wanted to use, well, I decided against it — too messy legally, even if my project would probably count towards “fair use.”

This is my third soundslide I’ve made in the past year and a half and I have to say, I think I’m the happiest with this one. Looking back, my first was awful (no surprise) and my second was mostly boring. This is at least interesting, to me at least. If I could go back in time, I would have taken more photos at the concert. I would have maybe gone to Capitol Hill and went for the Block Party angle a bit more. Lots of little things. But not so bad overall.
