Here’s a little something I dreamed up for the website called ‘Impromptu Interview’. For once, I get to ask the questions. As you might expect, they are thoughtful, provoking and um… well, thought-provoking.
However, they are the same stupid questions in every video! “You’re crazy!” I hear you cry. Well, no actually, I’m not. Because it’s not about the questions, it’s how they are answered that make it interesting. Crazy? Perhaps. But like a fox. Or some other wily creature. Like maybe a ferret…
No, really. I ask pretty much the same questions to everybody. Here they are:
Can you recommend a book?
Can you recommend a film?
What’s on your iPod?
If you weren’t a ______, what would you be?
(Bonus Question) You’ve worked with X. What’s X like in real life?
But the answers I get are wildly different, depending on the subject. Some are actually quite revealing.
Plus, I always like to have plenty of books to read, films to watch and music to listen to. I like recommendations from friends as I tend not to trust critics…
I interview people in showbiz. Actors, writers, directors. The people in the videos will usually be the people I am working with at that time.
Oh, and the last thing you need to know about ‘Impromptu Interview’? It’s just that. Impromptu. It happens out of the blue, suddenly and without warning and usually at a strange or inconvenient time.
A new one will be posted every week! Enjoy! Be sure to check by next Tuesday for the first interview.
