Interviewing

 

If you're not keen to be on camera yourself or you don't have the right expertise for the piece - interviewing is a great option. Practicing being on camera is a no brainer but often we also forget that interviewing is a particular skill that needs practice too.

Top tips:

  1. Make sure the interviewee can see your face and knows where you want them to be looking
  2. Smile, use your face to help them feel and look more comfortable
  3. Start recording early, keep chatting and then start the interview. Stopping the conversation to click "record" can be distracting and cause your subject to freeze up.
  4. Let them mess up and encourage them to start their answer over.
