The Interview

The Explore More Project is a series of short documentaries with the interesting people that I meet on this adventure. In the first week of my trip I visited Roermond, Netherlands to ask documentary film maker Juul van der Laan to share some tips on interviewing others.

Juul had recently spent 5 weeks in Ghana filming a pilot episode her new series ‘Multiverse’ which focuses on scientists in Africa. During that time she conducted over 30 interviews in various locations around the country in challenging conditions.

Interviewing the interviewer helped me understand some of the technical and personal considerations that I would need to be aware of in the months ahead. This was the first interview in the series so it will be interesting to see how the future documentaries progress as my interviewing techniques develop and my confidence grows.
