People reveal themselves to folks they know and trust.

It's common for videographers to pre-interview the main character beforehand and then show up to film the interview. At the most, this is two contact points, including the film day. We had 4-5 points of contact with Joe to build rapport and trust:

  • Day 01: 60 min pre-interview phone call
  • Day 02: Half-Day job shadowing plus lunch with Joe
  • Day 03: 30 min phone to about the story's direction
  • Day 04: Film Joe's interview
  • Day 05: Film Joe's community scenes

Information about his mother was gathered on day 02, which opened this door of vulnerability during the filmed interview resulting in Joe revealing his deeper why.

"…you managed to open my eyes not just to the organization but to the greater connectedness of the issue."
