Although some people feel perfectly comfortable with the idea of being interviewed for a video production (including many of you who grew up with Skype and YouTube) it’s been our experience that most people dread the very idea of being on camera. But interview videos are everywhere these days, from the customer testimonial to the “about us” videos. They are a great source of content.
The Groovy team has interviewed hundreds of people over the last 15 years. Because our mission is to help you stay calm and relaxed, we have a tried and true system in place.
Before the interview, we’ll chat about anything but the interview questions. This is where we break the ice and set the “table” for the interview process. We might ask, “where do you hail from, discuss the latest news announcements, the weather – anything to help you relax and enjoy the moment. We may start off as strangers but our aim is to part as friends – friends who take care of you and look after your needs!
With the lights, white or green screens and cameras set to go and mics in place, we start our “interview”. Often times we will have sent questions that might apply to what is needed in the interview. We try to avoid Q & A. Instead we will have a natural conversation. So whether it’s a product launch or a specific message, we often start our interview with “tell me about …”
In our videos at no time will you be looking at the camera. You will be conversing with the interviewer. Our creative director will be behind us and off to the right unobtrusively filming the interview. Remember we are filming you having a conversation. The camera is just another “person” in the room. Before you know it, you will have been speaking with us for 10 to 15 minutes and that is usually a rap! Seamless and painless!
Here at Groovy Concepts we want your interview experience to be a pleasant one, your message to flow smoothly, and we want you to be proud of your successful interview.
