Getting People to Talk: Interviews

The blog for Shakespeare in Queens Park Festival (SiQP) which I’ve been keeping for a couple of years now has an addition: interviews with some of the key artists, creatives, and technicians. It’s been fun talking to them. What surprised me was that I didn’t have to prod them to reveal all. Once they got going, they took off, and the editing afterwards was pretty painless–a couple of repetitive “ums and ahs” here and there, a phone call that interrupted the flow (note to self, take phone off hook before pressing the record button), but nothing else. Really, to get people talking, all you need to do is ask them about their passion–in this case, what they’re doing for SiQP.
