I recently completed a project in my Broadcast Technology class, where I interviewed someone for a unique experience that they had. I interviewed my dad because he ran the San Francisco Marathon this summer. This project taught me many things. It taught me not to procrastinate first of all. I started my project later than I should have because I didn't have an idea for my story. My project could have been a whole lot better if I had started it sooner. It also taught me the importance of a steady camera and angles. If you have a shaky camera it turns a good video into a bad one, it turns it unprofessional. Angles are important so the viewer doesn't get bored. If you have a five minute video with only one angle, the viewer will get very bored, very quickly. Another thing that is important in an interviewing video is b-roll. B-roll provides action. It also gives the viewer an idea of what he is looking at. Audio is also very important to a video. If your audio is inconsistent then it will sound very unprofessional. If it is too quiet you can't hear and if it is too loud then it can hurt your ears. It is very important to find that perfect sport between too loud and too quiet. My video was not the best ever, but if the next time I interview someone and use all of these key components, it will be a stellar video.
