Now that the interview has been shot, it's now time to edit. This process for me was a bit tedious, however the final product was well done. It's a little difficult to put the B-Roll in right at the exact moment of switching shots. It is also challenging to only get the best clips of the person talking. Sometimes you might have to shorten or lengthen shots to the exact frame, yet all these aspects make the interview look excellent. I had a very positive and satisfying experience going through the process of a interview. I'm glad that I know the basics so later in college and jobs I will not be clueless on what an interview is and how to make one. I am eager to know what we do next in this awesome class.
This week in Broadcast Technology, we are learning how to interview formally and quickly, and what aspects make a quality interview such as B-Roll and the thirds of the camera. I interviewed my friend Sean on his fast typing. The first thing we did was set up the camera and the microphones on Sean and the camera. I made sure that the camera was over the shoulder and Sean was on the other side. I then asked him several questions on his fast typing skills and how he will use them in the future. After that, I got 3 to 4 shots of B-Roll of him typing. This included his computer screen, and his face while he is working. These different shots are good so the audience can get a visual of Sean actually using his skills in school. Overall, I thought this interviewing process was simple and fairly fast to do. I would love to go more into interviewing later in life and see how the new channels interview and TV shows do it as well.
