People often ask why do you just do audio and not video?
There are several reasons that an audio recording is better than a video. Here are just a few:
Audio is portable. You can take it anywhere. You and your family can actively listen to you story while they’re driving, walking the dog, doing the shopping, you name it. Switch to video and all of a sudden you limit your audience’s ability to consume your content because they have to be at a computer or standing still to watch.
People tend to be more nervous in front of a camera. With audio, you don't have to worry about your hair, wardrobe or makeup. You can relax, enjoy the interview process and have fun!
It's still your voice that people want to hear ... your story, your words, your voice. Whether it's now or many years later, your family will enjoy hearing your voice and your laughter.
Video is more expensive to produce. Really good video is simply more expensive because it takes more equipment, and time to edit properly. A great audio interview will capture the essence of your personality at a fraction of the cost.
