    I have been involved in the arts for over twenty-five years as a filmmaker, exhibiting visual artist, Argentine tango dancer, arts therapist and educator. My current project is a documentary feature film about artists who have faced addiction called The Creative High. It illustrates how musicians, visual artists, dancers and performers create art. The Creative High explores the highs and the lows of art-making and helps us understand more about the human condition from people who have experienced deep loss and disorientation due to addiction. The film is a testament to the chaotic and passionate nature of creativity, giving a voice to a range of experiences, memories and emotions.

    InqScribe has been a crucial part of our current phase of production. We are assessing our footage and reviewing all of the interviews of our artists by transcribing them. We have close to 20 hours of interview footage so far, and being able to use InqScribe to capture all the dialogue matched with timecodes has been a great time-saver and overall asset to The Creative High. Both my media intern and I will be able to make significant progress towards completing the transcription without hiring a costly transcriber.

    InqScribe is very simple and it has been easy to navigate. So far, my favorite thing about InqScribe is the customer service and all of the tutorials and FAQ on the website that take you step by step through the learning process. If I had known the value and ease in using a transcription software such as InqScribe I would have taken advantage of it in previous projects.
