Cutting Room Floor Gold: The Interviews
Mick has added a new presentation format for the discussion and study of social issues, which has been successful in a variety of settings and venues. In the course of his 20 years as a writer and producer, he has recorded hundreds of hours of interviews with many extraordinary history makers. From these extended conversations, only a very few minutes appear on-screen, and many magical moments are lost on the cutting room floor. Mick is now bringing these never-before seen interviews to a live audience in a unique way, weaving them with background and backstories. Some examples of these “golden” clips can be seen below – these are just a sampling of a vast archive of interview material. Subject areas can be tailored to your interest or gathering.
