Now that the interview with the DJs are done and dusted with the footage all saved on the camera, Ellen successfully organised our interview at SAE with a lecturer in electronic music, Christopher Hancock.
He said that he would give us a tour around the campus to show us the latest equipment, the studios and studio gear.
These were the questions that we had for Christopher Hancock.
- What degrees and courses do you offer here at your institute?
- For your courses particularly with electronic music do students who come here usually come from a musical background? Do they play an instrument or do they have to be up to date with the technology rather than with music?
- How do you go about teaching technology because it looked very complicated? Do you have steps?
- Is Ableton the main software that you teach the students to use here?
- Do students compose a lot in this course?
- Do a lot of your students when they finish their degree or course do they become profession DJs or electronic musicians outside?
Chris first showed us around the school. I filmed the footage as I followed Chris and as he was explaining what gear was in what studio. After filming the footage of the campus, we went into a room where we conducted the interview. I set the camera on the tripod and filmed as Ellen asked the questions.
After all the filming was done, Ellen and I decided to film some extra footage to include in our documentary. We did a silly little one where I filmed ourselves in the elevator. We also did a proper one where Ellen was introducing what we were doing at the entrance of SAE.
