Q: “You actually have your own production company; it’s not as though you’re a freelancer now, you are a focal point – somebody will come to you for a complete service…”

A: Don Elliott: “That's right to the finished product, you know, the master. That's right and well, like I said some things can be very, very interesting. At times, some things can be very boring, but we have a full studio, a 16/24 setup where I live. It's all done there.”

Interviewer: “Where do you live?”

Don Elliott: “I'm in Weston, Ted, Connecticut, which is near Westport, if anybody has heard of that. And we're about an hour and ten by car or train from the city. And sometimes, we'll get a string section from the New York Ballet that come right up in the station wagon and things like that, enjoy the day out there because it is nice and we do it right there.”
