About the workshop:
Shooting effective interviews is a skill often used by documentary filmmakers to make their stories even more compelling. If you have a strong character with a fascinating story, ready to bare all in front of camera, here’s how to make sure the interview goes swimmingly!

Playground invites you to a beginner level workshop for non-video people where the participants will learn how to shoot effective documentary style interviews. The workshop will cover pre-production (choosing and refining a topic, planning shoots), production (camerawork, conducting interview, recording sound) and post-production (editing, adding titles, and music).
