We interviewed each other using possessions we had with us at the time; such as make up, mp3 players and accessories to inspire lines of questioning.
After importing the footage into iMovie we edited it into a more conventional sequence. We used title screens to show the questions that were asked and later changed this to subtitles at the bottom of the screen. We also added transitions such as fade in, fade out and overlap to make the edits smoother and used effects such as fast motion and slow motion to engage the audience’s interest.
