Alan and I interviewed Kenneth Lambert, an artist based in Dublin and Madrid, for Scene Not Herd. His exhibition ran in April in Temple Bar's No Grants Gallery . It was my first time interviewing anyone, and it went quite well. We chatted for about 15 minutes, but ultimately we scrapped a lot of it, and the final piece is just over a minute long.
What have I learned from the experience? Nod in SILENT agreement with what the interviewee is saying - Do not go 'umm', 'yeah', etc. because those little colloquial mutterings are a bitch to edit out in Final Cut Pro. I'll know to keep my lips stapled shut for next time!
