Why should I hire Lasting Voices to conduct family interviews rather than do it myself?
It takes time Complete life histories typically take four to eight hours to recount. Also post-production work can be
extremely time-consuming (for example accurate interview transcription takes four to six times longer than the length of the recording).
Great interview content
People generally say more when they have a new, attentive
listener to talk to. The narrator will be less likely to skip over things he or she assumes a family member would already know.
An experienced interviewer can also provide subtle direction to keep an interview moving and on track.

Why use audio recording rather than video?
For better stories Audio recorders are less intrusive than video recorders, and less intimidating.
Once the interview starts, people tend to forget about them. An audio-taped interview becomes an
opportunity for relaxed, extended recollection and real conversation rather than a self-conscious performance for the camera.
