PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Want to learn how to get amazing interviews, whether you are making a documentary, an oral history project, or capturing your own community or family stories? There are as many ways to shoot interviews as there are styles or subjects of documentaries. It’s important to make a decision early in terms of what stylistic approach you have for your project and what style of interview works best.

This three-hour workshop will give you insights into different approaches to interviews, what to consider when setting up and filming an interview, and a chance to get some hands-on experience setting up and conducting a one-on-one interview. Make the most of your time with each subject and learn how to get the best possible interviews for your documentary.
