I've been busy getting everything sorted for the first consultation event which takes place next week, here at the Audio Lab research and teaching facility in York. The event is now fully booked and there is a waiting list for places (although it's not too long so it's still worth letting me know if you're interested in attending). I'm really pleased at the level of interest and this bodes really well for the rest of the project.
Meanwhile I've had the opportunity to interview a dubbing mixer with over thirty years experience in television and film sound. Neil Hillman is managing director of The Audio Suite and his skills are widely recognised, not least by the Royal Television Society who gave him their Best Production Craft Skills Award in 2010. This interview, along with others that are planned, will form part of the publicly available project archive and, with material from the transcripts of events such as the one in York next week, will inform the research outputs from this project. It was a fascinating discussion and I'm looking forward to sharing it with everyone.
I'll be back soon to report on how the first event goes.
