The first interviews conducted took place on school campuses at the 2007 Bell and Trinity IB reunions. While the initial plan was to tape all of the footage in the HEB TV studio in order to gain the best lighting and sound, we realized that many of the former students would be leaving town to return to school and might not be available to return for the studio shoot. Some even had plans to leave the country.
We decided to set up a video camera on location at each of the IB reunions on the hopes that we might gain some footage to pull some quotes from for the site. However, we were so impressed with the former students’ responses, we decided to include much of the actual footage on the Edge site, despite the imperfect sound and lighting. We should make mention that unfortunately the noise level at the Bell location (in the library) prevented us from using any of the footage shot at the Bell reunion. We were delighted however, that a few Bell IB grads were available to come to the studio to be interviewed before returning to school.
