    There were 49 composers/sound designers/audio engineers at the Music and Sound for Visual Media expo. There was a demo playing on repeat in one room which allowed me to see a lot of film scoring samples along with the composer and their expo room number, which made it much easier to specifically talk to people whose style seemed like it might fit…[Read more]

    That’s odd. I usually get an email as soon as something’s posted in here, and I never got an email from that post. I’ll give Vicki a call soon and get that interview done.

    Hi Richard! I seem to have gotten very sick this week, which has been a problem. I did make it to the film scoring event yesterday. I will have a write-up of that for you soon. I should also have one or two full transcriptions for you by tomorrow.

    How should I contact Vicki?

    6pm Central is 7pm Eastern, right? If the interview is tonight, I’m available around 8 Eastern at the earliest, and 9 Eastern would be slightly easier (so that would be 7 or 8 for him). I do feel like I won’t necessarily be at the top of my game tonight since it’s the end of a long day, but I’m not available Wednesday nights, so if this is the…[Read more]

    That refers to the presentation that we discussed me doing and filming as an introduction to the film. When we talk, I’d like to touch on how you want me to approach that–my instinct would be to keep it brief, mentioning what the film is and what it’s meant to do, along with some prominent themes, without putting in a big summary or a ton of…[Read more]

    My schedule’s open, so just let me know when.

  • rachael replied to the topic Interviews in the forum The Meeting Room 9 years, 1 month ago

    Those times sound great. Let me know.

  • rachael replied to the topic Interviews in the forum The Meeting Room 9 years, 1 month ago

    These all sound great. The only one I have a time preference for is Janaya–I’d prefer to talk Thursday or Friday than today, but today would still work if it’s already set or that’s her preference. Just let me know when they’re scheduled for!

  • rachael replied to the topic Interviews in the forum The Meeting Room 9 years, 1 month ago

    Thank you. I really enjoyed talking to Laura, and a lot of what she had to say seems like it’ll be so helpful.

    My concern when it comes to not transcribing the interviews is that, at this point, I need to be getting about 15 hours in per week. If I’m just doing the interviews and taking detailed notes, I’m only getting the interview time. If you…[Read more]

  • rachael replied to the topic Hours & Updates in the forum The Meeting Room 9 years, 1 month ago

    That sounds great. I’ll give you a call tomorrow around noon.

  • rachael replied to the topic Hours & Updates in the forum The Meeting Room 9 years, 1 month ago

    These hours are mostly covered in the email I sent to you previously:

    I’ve done a lot of research on joint replacement care and found that most sources seem to say essentially the same thing, which, unfortunately, is not very much (hence, I suppose, the need for a more comprehensive Owner’s Manual). I’ve also looked at different medical…

  • rachael replied to the topic Interviews in the forum The Meeting Room 9 years, 1 month ago

    I made a separate thread to keep track of hours and the other things we discussed with Liv–that is, my “here is what I’ve done this week and how many hours I spent on it and what I’m thinking I’ll do next” and your “okay here is what I want you to do next.” It seemed easier for me to organize things that way; one of the things I like about forums…[Read more]

  • rachael replied to the topic Interviews in the forum The Meeting Room 9 years, 1 month ago

    Should I register at that community and participate in that thread? (I’m assuming those are interviews I’ll be doing.) I feel like I should probably at least introduce myself so they’re not thrown off when they realize there’s an intern doing or helping with the interviews. I’d also be more than happy to email or PM questions to member SISSYJOC if…[Read more]
