Where Do You Conduct The Interview?
We come to your home or a place of your choosing.
Most interviews are conducted in a quiet room away from traffic noise in the story teller’s home in order to be as relaxed and comfortable as possible.
Ideally we prefer a larger quiet room away from traffic noise. Preferably the speaker should be seated with a nice distance to an interesting background ie flowers, plants, lamp, painting or scenery through drapes
We usually shoot with 2 cameras so we will be looking for an area with 2 interesting backgrounds if possible
A studio space can be arranged but extra costs will apply
How Long Does The Interview Take?
The set-up takes approximately 30 minutes.
The interview can run from 2 hours for the basic single plan to 4+ hours for the Couples and Family+ plans
Can we have extra footage taken
Extra B-Roll footage enhances the production and keeps the viewer interested
Some recommend extra footage could include:
- Subject doing their normal routine ie Gardening, talking with friends, walking dog,
- Travelling to memorable sites
- Visiting Friends
- Interviews with others at another location etc
This could take a day or 2 and extra shooting costs will apply, but we quote first before approval and co-ordinate all of that with you.
What Questions Will You Ask?
The questions for the interview will vary depending upon the length of the production and what special topics you want to discuss
These may include:
- Your parents
- Work experiences
- Life’s challenges
- Significant historical moments
- Interests, Politics, Religion, etc.
We will paint as complete a biographical portrait as time allows.
What If I Say Something That I Don't Want Included?
You have absolute editorial control. If there is anything that you would not like in the finished production, simply say so at the time of the interview. Interviews that are spontaneous and lack a high degree of self-censorship are the most engaging.
You can also have sections removed from the 1st proof
Can I Do A Re-shoot?
Naturally if we are responsible for bad footage ie: out of focus, bad sound etc, we will re-shoot at our expense
However most people who don’t like a video production usually don’t like seeing themselves, no matter what they just don’t like the way they look or the way they talk so please practice your talk and make an effort to look great.
Yes you can re-shoot the project but it is at your expense.
Which means new camera crew costs and new editing costs.
If it is only a small section to be redone we will quote you first.
Please bear in mind though we have never had to redo a shoot yet. We plan well and get it right, and as long as you do your part and practice your answers, everything will be great.
How Do I Prepare My Photos and Videos
For most jobs we give you a script outline of the interview as discussed.
We require you to insert into the script the name of the photo or video you will supply that corespondents to that section. This does not have to be done before shooting.
The preparation process involves the selection of photographs, movies and slides that cover the topics discussed in the interview then writing captions to identify the people and places in them and finally instructions for any other custom touches you may want included in your production.
There are a set number of Photos of Videos included for each Package.
Extra photos and videos are inserted at an extra cost.
