I’ve received some requests to reintegrate all the Felix videos back into one single interview. The result of that would be a 2 hour long piece. In my experience as a video editor, I’ve come to realize that most people can’t endure watching a 2 hour video.

However, in the name of continuity, I have chosen to provide links to all the videos, in sequence. That way, those of you who haven’t seen the whole thing, will be able to do so – without having to search the whole site. I will also include these links in one of our sidebars, so you will always be able to quickly access them.

Part 5 Part 6 Part 7 Part 8

This series represents a massive effort on the parts of all concerned. The Initial interview involved travel to Florida for Pat Bliss and Jim Ridgeway. They were only allowed one hour per month with Felix, so they did the first hour on the last day of one month, and the 2nd hour on the 1st day of the following month. Felix himself was having trouble getting his hearing aids repaired, and getting issued fitting clothes, and was only ready mere moments before the scheduled time.

Our interpreter had to download the files from my private server, because they were too large to e-mail. She would then watch them and record an audio track with her interpretation. Finally, she would upload that file back up onto my server.

Then, I’d take the file, make it into a stereo mix, and sync it to the original audio track. Then I had to add a separate video track, and manually type in the captions. Autocaptioning software is too inaccurate.  And where most Autocaption applications work with one audio track, I was working with 4.

The finished files were over 5 Gb in size. I’d re-render them down to 50Mb, and upload them to the site.

The only actual editing of the original interview is at the end of the 8th segment. Here, Mr. Ridgeway gives Felix his personal contact info, and you can see why we needed to cut that out. Other than that, this is the interview in its entirety.

Again, these videos are the private copyrighted property of Jim Ridgeway and cannot be copied, duplicated, embedded or shared. You are however, welcome – and in fact, encouraged – to share links to DeafInPrison.com. We want as many people as possible to see this powerful and moving interview.
