YOUR INTERVIEW PLANNING AND STRUCTURING WILL BE MARKING IN FOUR AREAS: PURPOSE INTERVIEW PLANNING STRUCTURING PREPARATION.
Explain the purpose of your interview(s) and your interview techniques (see LO1 above), based on your show's format/genre (television documentary, chat show, magazine show, TV news interview). e.g. "Our interviews are for a documentary so we will need 'talking heads' interviews, where the questions will be edited out. We will be able to break up the interviews if there are any issues during the question & answers, and record in small sections (or at least not be concerned if there are mistakes mid interview). As we are making an expository documentary, we will aim to get interviews that inform as well as express opinion and these will not, generally, be combative or investigative as we are not interviewing for a news show or similar.â€?
