Filmmaker Andy Coon's tips for film interviews

Thanks Andy for taking time to send these:

1) Never ask a yes or no question
2) Try not to answer your own question when asking it.
3) Best way to get someone to talk is using these..."Tell me ____" "Explain how that made you feel."
4) Always be silent... You'd be amazed how much information will be revealed in silence. Not too much of course, but never interrupt.

...onward, upward!

okay, I get it! - this is the THIRD time I've gotten this message in the last two days. Quite timely as I have decided to make a documentary and it's hard as a storyteller to always listen.
Thanks for the reminder!
