We’re currently working on a project involving the history of one of the region’s theatres, to be shown on the occasion of the organization’s 50th anniversary.
We have shot several 30-45 minute interviews with people who worked at the theatre in its early days. We delivered DVDs of each of these interviews with embedded time code. The client is using the time code as she creates an EDL from which we will eventually create a rough cut of this portion of the history. To integrate the video with as yet unrecorded still images and text interviews, she is making transcriptions from the DVDs to create a script from which the project will eventually be created.
I think you could get some interesting information regarding the relationship between video and transcription if you spoke with court reporters who, at least in our area, often work from both their own transcription and from videos shot at a deposition.
