The Art of the Interview – Workshop
HOW TO GRILL A STAR or THE ART OF THE INTERVIEW…
We’ve all seen them, documentaries built on boring, lifeless interviews. We’ve all read them, profiles that don’t even hint at the motives of the person behind the story. Warren Etheredge has spent a career interviewing filmmakers, authors and ordinary people on screen, in print and in person and has an uncanny ability to bring out insights his subjects never imagined they’d share.
During this program Warren offers structures, tips and strategies to turn mundane questioning into the Art of interviewing. It is an art that Warren has honed in more than 1,000 professional interviews with such personalities as Amy Sedaris, Sir Salman Rushdie, Zack Braff, Michael Pollan and Naomi Watts. He is currently producing The Warren Report television series in which he conducts in depth interviews with filmmakers and experts on the issues brought up in their films. During this workshop you will not only learn the secrets of solid interviews but get to practice the craft yourself under Warren’s watchful eye.
