My initial idea was about a 1 minute punch video, but since the talent was quite nervous about the shoot, I sat and chatted with him on camera about various points, as a result the video is what it is now. I got content out of the interview I didn't bargain on which made it in the final cut. The talent did note that it felt to him like it was about a 10 minute interview even though we were chatting for over 26 minutes. The very first shot was captured at the end of the session as I felt I wanted the option of a punchy intro shot, which, is scripted.
The idea was to create a promotional video for the event as well as create an emotional involvement to the talent, which I think I achieved.
