How it works
When you contact the Recollection Agency, you and Trevor will set up a planning meeting. In that meeting, you and he will explore you’re your goals for the recordings. You’ll talk about if and how you wish to share your recordings. The goal of the meeting is to clarify what stories you want to preserve and how. Based on this planning meeting, we will develop questions that will guide the interview. Your planning meeting and subsequent interviews can be in-person or remote based on your needs.
Our goal is for the planning and recording processes to be interactive and enjoyable for all.
Come recording day it can just be you or involve others who will bring color to the recordings. Depending on the scope of your storytelling, you may have one or more sessions.
After your interview is complete, Trevor will edits for clarity. Once he completes a first draft, Trevor will share those files with you for review.
You tell Trevor where you want edits or he can make a first edit and share that. Maybe you want to add sound effects or additional audio. Great. This is your time to get creative. Trevor is your humble audio production servant.
After your edits are complete, Trevor will provide you with a final product on whatever format you prefer: a CD/DVD, jump drive or a digital download of your high quality .wav files.
