As our pre-video shoot prep, the class was presented with information on how to choose our subject, how to conduct an interview, and other things to consider. We had the chance during class to rent video recording equipment and were given a prompt to ask our peers during a mock interview session. For two classes straight, this gave us practice speaking to our interviewee, asking the appropriate questions, having the right reactions, and also what it felt like to be on the other side of the camera while being interviewed. We also used this footage to practice editing in iMovie before editing our real projects.
