Please read all this - I want to work with someone who likes the idea of the project
This is a personal project
I have interviewed random people about their belief in, and relationship with, God. Not about religion or the doctrine of their faith but their thoughts on God / the eternal / whatever they want to call it and whatever it means to them. This year I have done 200 face-to-face interviews in NYC with a broadly equal demographic to the population of New York. I have recorded all the interviews, transcribed and edited them.
Reason I am doing this project is that I am personally inspired by other people's faith, so this has been inspirational for me in my search, and if it inspires anyone else to search for god, whatever their god might be, then that will have brought some more joy into the world.
Why I have done this as a series of interviews is I was very impressed with Studs Terkel (radio presenter of the 1970s in Chicago) and his approach to hearing the stories of ordinary Americans, particularly in his book "Working". So I'm trying to take the same approach. interview people and keep it in their voice. Not priests, not theologians - just random ordinary people i have stopped in the street and who have given me 30 minutes to talk about whatever faith or lack or doubts or journey they have.
Maybe it will be rather dull or obvious when all's said and done. But by keeping it to ordinary people and in the same demographic as new york city at the very least it will be a real view of what we (as a city) really believe right now - very different from what we would answer as "our religion" in a questionnaire
Anyway - attached is a simple layout for a wordpress site. The purpose of the web site is to be a description of the project, and to present all the interviews so that people can help me tag them and I can try and group them. (my hypothesis is that people no longer exclusively fall in the old nineteenth century religious classifications, but their actual beliefs are more of a mash-up and maybe there's some new groupings of faith we can all identify with). i am having a separate site built that allows people to see an interview, categorize it and the categorization of the interviews, and rating - but I need to get the design the same, so i want to start with the wordpress
SO - I need
1) a standard page - WP template page that works for the body of the site, nicely designed not heavy or fussy
2) a bare page - just need a PSD in the same style as the WP Template
3) an 'interview" page - again just a PSD in the same style as WP Template
it should all be on the attached PDF
