If you haven’t seen it already over at literaryminded.com, above is the latest episode of the “A Drink with…” series I’ve been working on with Angela and co.
For this episode we tried to address some of the feedback from the last episodes; to improve the quality of the audio, introduce the writer sooner, and shorten the overall length.
I think this interview is far more succinct, with very little fat in the conversation. The format retains a personal one-to-one feel, but by controlling more of the elements, the end result feels a little more formal than the first episode we shot (when really we had no idea what we were going to do).
There’s a balance between the two styles that we are still trying to hit, and hopefully we’ll nail it a little more successfully in the next episode.
That said, it’s pretty easy to make a video like this if you’ve got a great interviewee. Chris Flynn is someone very easy to like in a very short time, and comes across as very genuine on screen as well as in life. It was a pleasure to film the conversation between Angela and Chris.
