Spintown Interviews...Sophie Merry

I've been a fan of Sophie since her first "Groovy Dancing Girl" video came out. So I was thrilled she agreed to this.

You'll notice this interview is rather short & seems to fly by. We had some technical problems even getting the video she recorded to work. For awhile I thought I was going to have to scrap this interview or just do an audio version. After multiple attempts to fix the problem, Sophie ended up burning multiple formats of the video on a disc, and then mailed me the disc. I tried all the files on the disc but 1, and the video still didn't work for me. Luckily that last file worked, and I had something to work with. Sophie had already done more then I had asked of anyone in this process, so even though I wanted to ask follow up questions & do a better job, I didn't want to put her out any more then I already had.

So even if the interview is brief, please check out her work below. She's a very talented girl, who has taken advantage of this new medium. BIG THANKS to Sophie for making an extra effort to participate, it's not like Sunkist gives me much of an expense account.
