Today, we researched and watched videos about interviews, and how to correctly execute the process. For our next project we will be conducting an interview with an "expert". The way we are defining an expert is someone that has done a sport, hobby, or activity for 3-5 years. A few things I learned from these videos are lighting, composition, framing, and sound. I found the videos helpful because it went in depth and was easy to understand. It was nice to see a visual representation of how to interview. Most importantly, prepare beforehand and always be aware of your shot and subject at all times.
Some things to ask your Character to do:
Rephrase your question in the answer.
Wait a second before you answer.
Don't feel like your answers need to be perfect.
Don't look at the camera.
Try to avoid touching your face and moving a lot.
Say your name and spell it.
Some things you need to remember:
Choose a location with good lighting.
Watch for background noise and wind.
Proper looking room and head space.
How, why, what, and where are good questions.
Don't forget the "tell me" questions.
Shoot at an even, neutral eye level.
Turn of all cell phones.
Eyes should be seen clearly.
Ask the question: "Is there anything else you would like to add?"
