Behind the scenes: Desperately Seeking Grandma Alma

23 September 2022

by Denise M Semple



*HOH CC SRT


So editors adore an acronym, virtue signalling it may be but I found writing the HOH CC SRT for the feature DSGA improved my storytelling.


There were a couple of issues:

legacy narration

new commentary

non English song lyrics

spoken word poetry

Thai, Mandarin and Yoruba speech

1200 missing symbols from the code. Added while singing Des'ree "Life", and eating toast(dodododo).


It helped that I met with a hard of hearing person who asked me to take off my face mask so they could lip read. Aha! I need to use the captions to make the story taking place off screen easy to understand.


It was fun translating languages using Google, but in the end I didn't use any of it in the final subtitle file. 


Best,

One love,

Denise M

SAVING  MEMORIES

BEFORE THEY VANISH

It's fun to stumble upon photos, videos and slides because of the sentimental memories they evoke.  Mementos stacked in boxes, some still in developer shop envelopes, albums, framed on shelves are prey to dust mites and mould.
