The interview is a crucial step in the making of your documentary film. How do you build the relationship between the director and the protagonists? How do you understand your protagonists in relation to their personalities and their stories? How can the interviews illustrate their uniqueness? What approaches should you choose according to your documentary style? These are some of the questions that will be addressed in this workshop in order to best conduct your interviews and make the most appropriate choices for your work.
The workshop will be given in French but questions may be asked in English.
