Career Bytes : Conducting the Interview -- Basics
The basics of conducting a video interview are outlined and illustrated, including pre-interview procedures; one-or two-camera production procedures; interviewer techniques; and rule of thirds shot composition.
Before starting the interview: before the host begins his/her introduction, the camera operator should turn the camera on and have the interviewee spell his/her name to accurately capture how to spell the interviewee’s name for use in creating the lower thirds (name) graphics.
Teacher Note: If you do not have two cameras you can use one camera and have both subjects in the same shot. Though this is not recommended the focus is on the context rather than the production quality.
One- or Two-camera Production Techniques
If only one camera is available for the interview the production-format should still be conducted in an over the shoulder set-up but by filming one subject at a time. It is suggested that you start with the camera pointing at the interview subject so when the host or the interviewer asks the questions originally the answers given will be recorded and the subject won’t have to repeat his/her answers a second time.
Two-Camera Production: Students should set the cameras up adjacent to the host and the guest’s shoulders to make the interview look more professional as well as saving time by not having to re-shoot reactions from both subjects or have the interviewer repeat the questions.
Sit Close: To avoid looking like the interview subject is sitting on the opposite side of the room from the host and the camera, have the subject sit fairly close to the interviewer and the camera.
Smile, Smile, Smile: A reminder again to the students who will be asking the interview questions or who will be appearing on camera that with a two camera production the students must be aware of their facial expressions while the camera is taping.
Rule of Thirds: While recording their interview students should make sure to follow the Rule of Thirds, where the shot composition is split up into 9 blocks with the eyes of the individual being in two of the top boxes and the rest of the individual aligned accordingly.
