We'll get in touch and talk to you about the interviewee. Whether it's for you or someone else, we'll find out a little bit about the person with whom we'll be having a conversation. We'll ask basic background questions, so we know the right questions to ask during the interview. Is there something specific you want to discuss? Anything that's off limits? Having this information prior to the interview will ensure we ask engaging, though-provoking questions that will allow anyone who watches the interview to really feel like they know the person.
Assuming we have the interview scheduled, and a place picked out, we'll arrive about 15 minutes prior to the scheduled interview time in order to set up. We'll have all the equipment necessary to conduct the interview: cameras, microphones, lights, etc. The standard interview session lasts one hour. That is usually enough time to focus on all of the important questions. Naturally, if the interview is taking longer because the stories are just so amazing (a good thing!), we will adjust for time as necessary.
We'll deliver your finished video within 7-10 business days of your scheduled interview date. Generally, we deliver the video in as "raw" a format as possible, with very little editing. Our goal is not to "create" a story, our goal is to capture your story exactly as it is told by you. By request, we can add title slides which detail the questions prior to each answer. If you prefer to have your story edited into a narrative format with music and additional highlights, we can discuss these customization options and deliver exactly what you want.
