||I teach aspiring documentary filmmakers and radio journalists how to get the most out of their interview. Over five sessions, students learn from examples and through practice useful techniques of interviewing: identifying interviewees, researching for the interview, preparing questions, active listening during the interview, asking follow-up questions, techniques for responding on the fly, tips for recording and transcribing interviews, and more. We study successful interviews and workshop interviewing skills in class. Students finish with a short radio quality interview piece.||
