“How to Conduct Remarkable Interviews” – tutorials by Stillmotion

How many times have you gotten done filming an interview and thought to yourself “that could have gone much better, if only the interviewee would have…”?

​Maybe the person was lacking passion​, w​as extremely camera shy​, or gave answers that were too short or rambling.​

​But maybe it wasn’t the interviewee’s fault at all…Stillmotion has dubbed ​this phenomenon the “It’s Not Me, It’s You” Syndrome.

​This ​occurs when we blame characters—the people we’re interviewing—rather than ​blaming ourselves and ​tak​ing​ responsibility ​for​ the story we create​d.

​Not only does the “It’s Not Me, It’s You” Syndrome​ cloud our judgement, but​ it also give​s us​ no hope of doing better next ​the ​time​ around​. We’ll continue to do the same thing, over and over, yet ​hope for different results. ​​​And that’s nothing more than a prescription for insanity.​

If we want to get something different, something deeper,​ something more compelling and thought-provoking, out of our interviewees then we need to be ​willing to do something different.

​In order to combat this condition and help filmmakers get something more meaningful out of their interviews, Stillmotion has launched How to Conduct Remarkable Interviews. Th​is​ entire course is based on what they call ​the ​Golden Rule of Interviews. ​This sample gives you a sneak peek into how Muse can help you get the most of out of your interviews. You can watch it here.

How to Conduct Remarkable Interviews is currently available for only $147, ​but ​you can get $50 off with the discount code GoldenRule — good through the end of the month. Please go here to learn more and sign up today.
