Join Amy DeLouise for an in-depth discussion in this video Building your talking points, part of The Art of Video Interviews.
…Male 1: You've heard Amy and I use…the phrase talking points several times so far.…And this is because it's a very common thing that people will ask for.…Now if you're a journalist, you've…probably never given people talking points.…But if you're doing work in corporate or other styles of video or audio production.…Many people will want talking points or they may even provide them to you.…If a client gives me talking points, I look them over to become familiar…with what the client is hoping to accomplish, but I…usually respectfully use them, but don't overly rely on them.…
See, one of the things you have to think about are the overall goals…of the project and if there's anything else that needs to be worked in.…I'll often look at publications or other projects the clients put out…to see if there's any common themes that emerge in other videos.…And this will help shape the talking points.…Generally…I try to look at that rough script that Amy described to you.…Where you're having the dream sound bites.…If you were to listen to the video or listen to the interview afterwards.…
