Hey Guys! This was a video recording assignment that could be any topic of our choice. I went with the idea “Open your Mind” which consisted of a couple of questions that are often not talked about to really challenge the people involved.

BRIEF EVALUATION

“Open Your Mind” was based around the idea that some topics are hardly spoken about. Therefore I decided to place the cast in a tent, whilst picking up an unknown question, for them to open up their mind and answer these personal questions. To make sure the responses were as vulnerable as possible, I removed myself from the space, leaving them secluded.

I created an event and invited a big group of people, but only six people turned up, so I had to have another day of recording. This did create a bit of distance in the video clip as the lighting was differential from the day before. This did reduce the quality of the video story as I felt it didn’t flow as it could have.

Overall the answers were relatable and delicate. The answers were also quite various which was the aim of the video story.

Reflection

Through this procedure of initialising the questions, interviewing the interviewee and editing the voice recording, I seemed to acknowledge things I could have done better and things I achieved well.

I found all my questions were quite interesting and open ended, therefore giving the interviewee a chance to speak about the specific topic in a broad manner. I had also made a couple of extra questions just incase the interviewee gave short answers to make sure it covered the duration that was needed for this assessment. The questions were written down on a piece of paper in big writing so I didn’t get lost through the interview.

I felt as though with the interview, I did create a quiet environment, although there was a bit of echo through the room which was noticed in the recording. Through Taylor speaking there were times I noticed myself speaking over him e.g. saying “ok” or agreeing with his statement. Next time I will consider to stay quiet and show acknowledgement through smiling and nodding as it did come across distracting. Through the interview I aimed to achieve a high level of rappor through eye contact, smiling and conversing with him during the interview.

Editing the video was probably the hardest part of the process, as I wouldn’t classify myself great with computers and editing apps. I also found it difficult with my little knowledge to be able to cut out his language errors including “um”and “like” in a way that came of unnoticeable.

Through this whole process, I was able to recognise how much I enjoy interviewing people as the interviewee can share experiences and knowledge that you may have not known before. Although I was anxious about going out of my way to interview a stranger, I noticed people are much more eager to be an interviewee.
