I conducted an interview with, my friend and fellow classmate, Arsenia Ivanov this past week about who she is, what she is doing for school, and a question regarding gender biases in sport. The interview process was actually really fun. I met Arsenia in Studio 59 in Cleveland Hall on the Washington State University campus. We discussed what questions we would be covering and the potential answers to those questions. We then tried a variety of different camera shots and seat locations. Once we decided on how we want this interview to look we started rolling. The actual time on camera was relatively short but the time spent in the computer lab editing the interview took a few hours.
The interview process and filming was very fun and quick. Arsenia is a very fun loving person and is easy to talk with. She definitely made the interview better just by being herself. While the video of the interview is short there are several questions that were asked but did not make it into the video. One of those questions was “If you could have any super power what would it be and why? Her response did not surprise me at the least. “I would want the power to heal. I would want to be able to heal issues like world hunger or cancer.” That is a small glimpse into who Arsenia is, she is always looking to help and better others in any capacity. Watch the clip below!
One of the best angles or shot from the interview is the last question I ask Arsenia. It deals with an issue that has been prevalent in the sport world for many years. Arsenia gives a brief but honest answer that I encourage any sport manager, and or fan to watch.
Below is the interview video. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it!
