How to Get the People You Interview Comfortable Talking

Read Time:1 minLanguages:

Putting someone in front of a camera and asking them questions can be brutal. In this lesson you will learn how to lessen the impact of the process of filming an interview and put your interviewee more at ease.

We look at the impact the interview process can have on your subject, how to stay on course, and finally we cover a few creative ways to re-enforce the subject matter with the careful choice of setting and environment.
