filmed interview evaluation

in the two interviews that me and Harry asked each other, we asked each other 5 simple questions just to find out a little more about one another and to practice for our documentary.  We gave each other short and longer answers. 

My questions to harry: 

What's your name and where do you live? 

How long have you lived in Petts Wood for? 

What hobbies do you like to do in your spare time? 

What's your favourite sport from what you've said? 

What's your favourite TV programme? 

harry's questions to me: 

What's your name and where do you live? 

What's your favourite sport and why? 

What's your favourite colour? 

Whats your favourite animal? 

Whats your favourite subject in school? 

The equipment we used was in good condition to use without any problems. The lens was clean and the tri-pod has no faults 
We went into a quiet room, where we had no distractions and this allowed us to hear each other clearly in the interview 
On a few of the questions, we gave good, full answers that would have looked good in the documentary. 
Some of the questions were good practice questions as they would relate to questions ask in the interviews within our documentary. 

To make the interview look more professional, we could have possibly used studios lights around  the room. 
Even though we could hear the interviews clearly, it wasn't the best sound in the world. We could have used a microphone or moved the camera closer to get a better sound
The positioning of the camera wasn't the best and it was a bit too low. We should have either raised the tripod or moved the camera closer. 
Some of the questions didn't relate to the questions we plan to use in the documentary, so they were not really needed in the interview. 

As a whole I think this filmed interview was a success as we learned what we done well and what we could of done better. These pros and cons will help us make sure we make our documentary interviews without any errors. when filming the interviews in our actual documentary we are going to make sure that the sound is clear from our interviewees talking. we are going to make sure that our camera angles are flattering and that the focus is correct. we must also make sure that the questions are clear and not confusing so that our interviewees can answer them without thinking about them to much.
