We spend a lot of time in school, and have the rest of the team deciding to further edit the questions and the way we approach the interview. We are,sadly, unable to loan out a pole boom mic for the interview, but are able to get hands on the normal Rodeo mic. Also, we have 2 cameras of our own , with our own tripods.
We spend most of the time in the library, deciding on angles, lighting, places where James is going to be interviewed. Luckily, there are 2 light stands in the library that we could use, together with small table and a sofa.
I suggested and prepared the table and some books and drinks to be placed on it to make James Dalby feel more ‘welcome’ and also to make the interview more professional. Basic hospitality is essential in interview.
I help out with taking pictures and also on recording sound from James Dalby.
We are shown James Dalby’s EasySlider, a slider for camera that can capture timelapse and that is also fully controllable through a knob, and he designed and created it all by himself.
I am truly impressed by the work of my team, as they are doing their roles so well and even feel like that they have prior experience in doing those. Overall, the interview went well and we received some good words from him.
