The Art of The Interview
SWAMP is pleased to bring Bruce Bryant and Jim Barham (For the Sake of the Song: The Story of Anderson Fair) to share their time-tested knowledge on the art of interviewing. Conducting an on-camera interview for documentaries, commercials, and other projects can be nerve-wracking for both the filmmaker and the subject! Techniques for drawing out stories or a "performance" from an interview take years of practice and also require adaptability depending on the person being interviewed. Whether you are new to interviewing or a veteran, come brush up on the dos and don'ts and discover the best practices for making your subjects comfortable in front of a camera so that their stories, and your projects, capture the heart of your audience!
MEMBERS! Look for your early registration email for this workshop! General registration begins April 1st!
