Hi guys, welcome to the 3rd part of the video interview from Durban Video Production Company. Lets talk about directing the interviewee.
- Relax the person, make sure they at ease. Understand it is difficult for them to talk on camera as they become very aware of what they saying and hoping what they say makes sense. Seat them down and tell them to forget about all the goings on around them. Know there will be lighting, sound and camera people getting equipment ready for the interview. Make sure a glass of water is ready for the “dry mouth”.
All the activity on a video set can be very daunting. It is very important to make the interviewer comfortable for filming. Nothing happens straight away, it can be up to an hour before filming actually happens. Be a good baby sitter and keep the environment calm. It depends on you whether you want to show the questions beforehand. Sometimes the interviewer would prefer to not reveal the questions. Personally we always show questions, we want the best answers possible. Brief the interviewee that retakes are possible. Mistakes will happen and this can relax the person.
