What can you teach us about the art of the interview?
Invite your interviewee to talk. Find something in common, make your subject comfortable, make them relate to you and then invite them to tell you their story. Listen, Listen, Listen. Sometimes a story comes out during an interview that you did not expect. Don't be afraid to pursue the story you did not expect.
In video, get straight to the point, be provocative, go after a particular issue - don't meander. Listen to the answers. Non answers can be as valuable and revealing as answers. The moment of drama of the interaction can be as valuable as the facts that are stated.
No softball questions, I don't care what party they are from.
Listen more, ask less. Interview is not only asking the right questions. Your pauses in between allow the subject to speak from his/her heart
Do your research! Even if you don't ask every question on your list, make sure you understand who the person is and why you are interviewing them. You usually get much better answers from your subject than if you just ask general or generic questions.
I have no recipe for an interview. Yes, I do follow the rules of proper journalism, but each interview is different because the person standing there in front of you is different.
So, my advice would be to thoroughly research the subject and try and be yourself. Ask things that the paper wants you to ask, but be careful not to bully the person that said yes to your interview request. Be original and provide the public with genuine information.
Let the interviewee talk more. Give precise, short and direct, but always polite questions. Never cross the line of common decency. Relax, whoever is sitting in front of you is also a human being with the same basic needs you have. Enjoy getting to know different people, their views and lives. Always, ALWAYS prepare yourself properly. Have a glass of water before the interview.
not much.you just have to genuinely be interested about people
Interview is an exquisite kind of mutual communication. The art of it is the interviewer gets to lead the interview in the direction that he/she intends it to be, smoothly.
Before interviewing Anyone about Anything, do your homework. Find out as much as you can about the person you are interviewing. Once you are doing the interview then be cordial and attentive to their responses, don't just read questions off a paper. After all you are there to find out more then just the regular , what, when , where, or why? Ask the questions your viewer or reader would want to know about them. Allow them to 'think' and respond. Many interviewers ask them the question and then they jump in over the person being interviewed to help them reply. How will they ever answer if you don't let them think much less talk! hahaha!
I really think that Lester Bangs was right: you're on the same level than the person you're interviewing
Well, stock questions only get you so far. A real conversation by a genuinely curious person is a good start at a good interview.
seja sempre objetivo nas perguntas e faça comentarios apenas se for necessario, caso contrario apenas ouça o que o entrevistado está dizendo.
My best advice would be to let the subject talk. Give them talking points instead of questions and the information will flow beautifully. Also, be observant of details like nonverbal language, tone of voice, and other things that may give away information or the fact that the person is lying. Choose your questions carefully and treat people with respect even if they are rude: it speaks volumes of your integrity and professionalism.
