Mary Harper Interview

During the Summer, Clare De la Torre and Abbey Kaye interviewed Mary Harper, auction recorder at the old and new Hereford livestock market since the 1980s. On Friday September 19th, Clare visited Catcher Media Social HQ to learn more about editing from Rick Goldsmith. They spend a good part of the day talking about editing techniques, Apple Mac operating systems and more importantly how to make an engaging piece of oral history media from the material she and Abbey had collected that day.

Using Clare’s interview audio, which was recorded by Abbey, and stills taken by Ken Grant, Abbey and Mary herself, Rick mentored Clare to help her create a short film, which in Clare’s words was: “So much better than I thought it would be!”

Having overcome the obstacles to all good interviews such as bells chiming, phone calls and worst of all, jets flying overhead, Clare now has an edit that will be uploaded onto the website once she collects a few more images.
