Ace your next interview by using our 20 interview questions for your next video.
In business videos, it has been increasingly more common to see documentary-style interviews used to narrate the videos. You are probably familiar with these shots from popular documentaries or tv shows. The interview subject is commonly placed on the right or left side of the frame and speaking to an interviewer on the opposing side of the screen.
Here is an example of a video we produced that was narrated by an interview.
This narration style has taken off because it is easy to produce and it provides a very authentic narration to the video. All-day people are being sold through ads and social media posts. Creating video content that tells a real story without screaming “buy this” is a way to calmly break through the noise.
In order to capture a compelling story, you need to start with a solid foundation - interview questions. The interview questions are your tool to pull the story out of your talent. No set of questions works for every interview so you need to be ready to adapt and adjust on the fly.
To get you started on your next interview we prepared 20 of our go-to interview questions when working with corporate clients.
