The People2People task is to create a documentary on an individual and their story, showcasing interview techniques in particular.
The subject of my People2People documentary is Ross Garrington, a tattoo artist and former engineer at The Tattoo Shop based in Coventry. The interview serves to tell in brief, his life story and how the art of tattooing has played a big part in his life and who he is.
We shot entirely in in The Tattoo Shop on Far Gosford street including the interview. The shop had plenty of visual stimuli with the artwork done by the shops artist’s littering the walls and gave the documentary authenticity.
My role in the documentary was as a sound recordist, camera operator and interviewer, while also offering creative input and I edited the rough cut.
Without further delay, here is my People2People documentary Ross Garrington: Tattoo Artist.
