For the 65th International Oberhausen Short Film Festival Speechkaraoke has selected together with Mika Taanila 32 film related speeches. We always try to find the original sound of the speech, since we use the original speech tempo and rythm for the timecoding of the speech. We in fact define for each word of a speech the timecode for the beginning and the end of the word based on the original recording.  For more rare or obscure speeches we sometimes need to record the reading of the speech ourselfes. In the picture below curator of the Conditional Cinema program at Oberhausen Mika Taanila is reading the Kenneth Anger manifesto “A Black Day For Mankind”.
