Venue: Online

Links to each session will be sent to registrations

As life moved online in spring 2020, those of us engaged in research filmmaking scrambled to find ways of conducting remote interviews. Since then the visual format of video conferencing platforms has become ubiquitous on TV news and social media, and in our personal lives. There are advantages in the instant studio provided by these platforms, which offer recording via webcams and built-in microphones, and allow us to connect with interviewees with no travel or equipment-hire costs. But there are also aesthetic, phenomenological and practical issues to unpack. 

These sessions offer a forum for filmmakers and practice-based researchers to discuss their experiences of online interviewing and establish an appropriate skillset for its use going forward. 

Session 1 - Adventures in Zoom

Friday April 30th, 2021, 1PM - 2PM

Share your experiences of working with remote interviewing for film and research projects over the last year. Lily Ford, Sasha Bergstrom-Katz and Henry Mulhall will open the session with some reflections derived from their own work, followed by a chaired discussion with participants. This is a round table event and participants should have their cameras on as far as possible.
