The Celebrity Interview is an important skill to learn in the field of film production. Producing an interview is easy since the guest provides most of the content. But conducting a great interview takes practice. They key to a good interview is for the interviewer to set a relaxed tone, ask well-crafted questions based on good research. The interviewer must lean forward with a genuine feeling of curiosity and listen carefully to adjust to the guest's answers with appropriate nods or follow-up questions. It's important for the interviewer to invite the guest to tell their story. 

In crews of 5-6, students will select a Golden West teacher and conducted an interview complete with an introduction, b-roll, and companion music. The best spots are aired on Blazer TV.
