After some thought on the subject, I realized that I already have plenty of authentic voices for my film: the original witnesses! I am in the process of going over the depositions and cleaning up the spelling and punctuation, and will be asking a few people to read the depositions into a recording device tomorrow so that I can take various snippets from those and lay them in to see how that comes across. I may also do some “talking heads” with the witnesses names and relationship to the victim underneath, like these from the show True Crime:
I think I want to do at least one shot where it’s clear that there’s someone writing this stuff down. I am afraid that the film is in danger of getting bloated, but that’s where good editing will have to serve me, and I really need to get these storyboards and story timing down really tightly before I start the actual animation.
