Please note: This workshop was originally scheduled for August 12th and 19th, but was changed to August 18th and 19th, due to the Holy Fire in Lake Elsinore.
Young broadcaster, Jennifer Smart, brings her years of experience interviewing hundreds of celebrities and industry insiders, to kids and teens in Lake Elsinore.
Participants ages 9 and up are invited to “Interview Like the Pros” in this two-part workshop, August 18th and 19th. On the 18th, Jennifer and her team will instruct kids on skills and tips for three different interviewing scenarios – red carpet, sit-down/junket, and band/music festival. On the 19th, attendees will practice these skills in the three scenarios, interviewing special guests on-camera. Participants MUST complete the instruction portion on the 18th before attending the hands-on portion on the 19th.
“When interviewing someone, you may not have a lot of time and you need to think of the best question to ask, or you may want to elaborate on what they said in your previous question. Every interview is different, and the things I learned through interviewing come in handy in the rest of my life, too – like prioritizing and remaining calm,” Jennifer shares.
This workshop is run by the nonprofit Jennifer Smart Foundation, and takes place at the Find Your Voice Center, located in the Outlets at Lake Elsinore. More information can be found at FYVcenter.org. Pre-registration online is required, as space is limited. The cost of this two-day workshop is $99. A limited number of scholarships may be available.
