Authorship: What role will you as the creator play in the video. Will you narrate, ask questions from behind the camera, be a character in the video, remove your presence from video, or a combination of the former options? How does this method help the message of your project?
I won't narrate the video, but I will appear in it. I think this will help with the message of my project because the subject is something I was personally involved in so there will be more of a connection.
Content/ Interview Questions: Make a list of no less than 5 interview questions for each interviewee. As you create the questions think about the relationship between what you to include in the film and what questions might generate that material.
Can you summarize what the project was about?
What was the most important part of the project for you personally?
Is there anything you would have changed about the project?
Why is it important to you to go back and finish?
What do you think the long lasting effects of the school will be?
What was it like to see the first building complete for the first time?
Shots: Make a detailed list of shots you NEED for the video and shots that you WANT for the video. This list should include locations, b-roll shots, and the shots of the interviewee.
I already have b-roll shots
Interview: screen record of Skype call and camera footage on me during the call
Anxieties and Obstacles: Look through what you have written about so far and think through any obstacles or anxieties you have about your production plan. Write them down and brainstorm alternative plans.
Interview not being long enough
I can use more b-roll footage from the trip
Timing with the interview since she's on the west coast
I can set up a time earlier to make sure we have plenty of time to talk
