You can set up the perfect interview shot, with perfect lighting, expertly framed, even putting your secondary camera on a slider... but none of it will be great if the interview isn’t conducted well. Pulling captivating stories out of your interview subjects is a valuable skill. What tricks do you use to get a good story? .
I’ll start with one... if I want someone to elaborate, instead of asking “can you elaborate?” I say something like, “wow that must have been hard to do.” or “that sounds like an incredible experience.” I’m not asking a question, so I often get full sentence answers and it comes off as a more natural response. At least most of the time. 😜
