Your prized interviews are gathering dust.
Few people ever get to hear your archive.
Let us bring your work to life.
Journalists, authors, publications, radio stations, authors, libraries, and archives have decades of recorded interviews that have rarely been heard. Until now.
Dust off those tapes, minidiscs, and digital recordings. Let us remix your archive as part of the Blank on Blank series with PBS. It’s easy. All you have to do is upload a digital file or send us the recording of your interview.
Blank on Blank contributing journalists write for WIRED, Esquire, Rolling Stone, Fast Company, SPIN, the Boston Globe and more.
Interview partners include the JFK Library, the Studs Terkel Radio Archive, and the Library of Congress.
What happens to my interview?
You keep the rights to your on-the-record, raw interview. We’re creating a new animated short on YouTube and beyond–plus a podcast and episode to air on public radio around the country.
If you send us a tape, we’ll send it back plus a digital version of the recorded interview.
I have microcassettes.
Ah, analog. We love it. We work with a great team of audio pros to digitize cassettes, reel-to-reel tapes, you name it. Plus our audio engineers can turn almost any interview recording into a great sounding piece.
As long as you can hear the subject’s voice and the background noise is not overwhelming, it should work.
Don’t worry about a little tape hiss, we can clean that up and retain that feeling of being a fly-on-the-wall during your interview.
My interview was in a bar.
The more color from your interview the better. It adds atmosphere. Maybe the interview was in the bar or back stage and during the break in the conversation you can hear glasses clanging, music, and banter. Whatever it is, we want to hear it.
I don’t want anyone to hear me!
Fear not. We only want you to sound good. We’ll make sure all the “ums” and repeated phrases are removed from the finished Blank on Blank. Or we can remove the interviewer entirely. It’s up to you.
