  • FILMING INTERVIEWS
  • Cooking teacher (After school classes) 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. How long have you been teaching people to cook? Do you do a lot of baking at home? Were cakes and baking a big part of your childhood? What is your favourite cake to make? Why do you think people enjoy baking so much? Do you think cakes are an important part of our society? Did you always know you wanted a career to do with cooking/baking? What do you believe is different about British cakes and cakes from other cultures? What tips would you give people if they were going to start baking for the first time?
  • Cooking teacher (After school classes)  For this interview we filmed at the cake decorating classes. We filmed the teacher at this location in order to maintain natural mise-en-scene.  This interview was a success, but we will not be using this interview in our documentary due to the similarity with another interview.
  • Cutaways...  Whilst we where interviewing the after school cooking teacher we asked for permission from the students before hand to film them decorating their cakes.  This helped us to gain relevant cutaways for the answers that where given from this interview.
  • Cooking Teachers 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. How long have you been teaching food technology? Do you bake cakes outside of school?  If so what type of cakes do you make? What valuable skills do you think you can gain from baking? Do you teach students to bake cakes for different dietary requirements?  If so what specific types of recipes do you teach for this? Do you think young students enjoy baking cakes more than other foods? Are there more types of cakes being baked in school compared to a couple of years ago? Do you teach students to bake a wide variety of cakes from different cultures?  If so what cultures do you teach the most of? Given the increased awareness of cake baking thanks to programmes like the ‘Great British Bake off’ and ‘The Cake Boss’, do you think we will see more time spent on cooking/baking lessons in school? Do you think students see cake baking as an older person’s activity rather than something quite trendy?
  • Cooking Teacher  For this interview we interviewed Mrs O’Hea after lesson time in her classroom in order to maintain natural mise-en-scene then we where able to add baked cakes into the background to keep it related to the topic.  This interview was successful the first time as the answers given where relevant and good, the framing was correct and the miseen-scene was good.
  • Cameo Cake Craft 1. You have had over 25 year’s experience in cake design, why did you start decorating cakes? 2. How many cakes do you decorate a week? 3. What has been your most unusual/ crazy request? 4. Do people tend to go for more traditional designs or more individual designs specifically of them? 5. What is the most popular occasion you cater for? 6. Have you seen any growing trends in the designs people are requesting? 7. Would you consider cake decorating an art and a skill, why? 8. What’s your favourite thing about decorating cakes? 9. What’s the most anyone has ever paid for a cake to be designed?  What was it for? 10. Do you think that designs people are asking for have been influences by TV shows about cakes? 11. Do you use any ingredients in cakes that might surprise people?
  • Cameo Cake Craft (Norma)  We firstly filmed this interview with Norma in her own cake decorating shop, and from this we were able to receive a higher quality mise-en-scene and the answers that where given where great. However, Norma’s glasses had a reflection in the lenses which comprised the quality of the overall shot.  On our requested second attempt we asked if the glasses could be taken away, to which Norma agreed as they weren't a necessity, this enabled us to gain a better shot.  This interview was successful the second time as the answers given where relevant and good, the framing was correct and the mise-en-scene was great.
  • Cutaways...  Whilst we where interviewing Norma at Cameo Cake Craft we asked for permission to film the cakes that she had displayed around the shop.  This helped us to gain relevant cutaways for the answers that we had listened to during the interview, so this would correctly aid want Norma was talking about .
  • Becky Elliot (Dietary Requirements) How long have not been able to have wheat? How has this affected your diet? Are there specific cakes made for your wheat allergy? Have you seen more variety in the cakes that are specifically made for allergies? 5. Do you think specialised dietary cakes have become more accessible over recent years? 6. In your opinion do cakes made without wheat taste different to cakes with wheat? 7. On celebrations such as birthdays, what do you have as a substitute for cake? 8. Where do you buy your cakes, if you have them? 9. Do you bake your own cakes? If so what do you bake? 10. Do you find that a lot of bakers don’t cater for your allergy? 11. Does this allergy make it more challenging to do out socially? 1. 2. 3. 4.
  • Becky Elliot (Dietary Requirements)  We filmed Becky Elliot in her working environment as this was the only available location. This compromised the overall miseen-scene, but to correct this we made sure relevant cutaways where filmed to add along.  The answers that where given are mostly usable, as in some answers the questions wasn't always clear in the answer. Other than this the framing was good and the interview was usable.
  • Marge Magee (Diabetic) 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. Where cakes a big part of your childhood? When did you first found out you were diabetic? Did you eat allot of cakes before you became diabetic? Are you able to eat cakes? If yes what do you have to do in order to do this? (If yes to 3) Do you choose to eat cakes? Why? Does not eating cakes change the way you celebrate for e.g. birthdays? If you could eat as many cakes as you could for one day what would you have? When your children were growing up would you be okay with them eating cake?
  • Marge Magee (Diabetic)  We filmed Marge Magee at her home, as we wanted her in a natural home environment as she couldn’t be around cakes talking about why Marge couldn't eat cakes as this would contradict her topic.  The only issue that had risen was that the lighting was slightly too dark, but it was commented that it gave it a ‘homely’ feel which would benefit the interview as long as there was relevant cutaways to aid the interviews topic.  The answers that where given are good and the framing was correct and the interview was usable.
  • Cutaways...  To help improve this section of the documentary where dietary requirements were disused, we asked ‘Sainsbury’s’ if we could film their “Free Form” range as it featured products such as: gluten free, wheat free and sugar free.
  • Dodgshon’s Bakery Tell us about the bakery How long have you been baking for? Why do you enjoy baking cakes? What’s your favourite cake? Do you make any regional cakes? If yes, which ones? Do you make a variety of fresh cakes? If yes, which ones? What are your most popular cakes? Has baking methods changed from how they used to be made to now? 9. Do you cater for people with specific allergies? 10. What happens to cakes you don’t sell at the end of each day? 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8.
  • Dodgshon’s Bakery  We filmed inside the bakery and interviewed the owner Ian. We firstly filmed him upstairs where the office was located, as it was busy in the shop, and the answers he gave where great. However, once we watched the interview back we realised that the mise-en-scene was poor and didn't reflect the documentary.  We then returned to Dodgshon’s to interview Ian, but during this second time we requested to film downstairs next to the cakes.  This interview was successful the second time as the answers given where relevant and good, the framing was correct and the mise-en-scene looked good.
  • Cutaways...  Whilst we where interviewing Ian at Dodgshon’s we asked for permission to film the cakes that where displayed around the bakery.  This helped us to gain relevant cutaways for the answers that we had listened to during the interview, so this would correctly aid want Ian was talking about .  When we watched the interview back we realised that more cutaways where needed so we asked if we return to film more footage. This time we also asked a customers permission to film them being served.

Do you sell any holiday novelty cakes? How popular are these nowadays? 11. Do you make any cupcakes if so which ones? 12. Do you agree that cupcakes are more popular now?
  • Morrison’s Bakery, West Kirby  When we filmed Morrison’s we where able to have the interview in the workplace, which helped to benefit the mise-en-scene. The answers that where received where not always clear in terms of knowing the topic of discussion, but ones that where are usable.  When we finished filming it was noticed that the framing of the interview had a slight tilt. We discovered that this was salvageable and could be corrected later on.  This interview was successful the second time as the usable answers that where given where relevant and good, the framing can be corrected during the editing process and the mise-en-scene looked good.
  • Cutaways...  After we had finished interviewing the baker at Morrison’s we asked the store manager for permission to film the cakes that where available in store.  This helped us to gain relevant cutaways for the answers that we had listened to during the interview, so this would correctly aid want was being talked about.
  • Amy’s Cupcake Van What first got you into baking? Where did the idea of a cupcake van come from? Tell us a bit about what you sell in the van?

  • Amy’s Cupcake Van  This interview took place in Amy’s cupcake van- this helped maintain the relevant miseen-scene. As Amy was interviewed inside of her van with the camera on the outside as this meant that Amy couldn't be positioned on a conventional slight angle- but as she was standing in the van it worked.  This interview was successful the first time as the answers given where relevant and good, the framing was correct and the miseen-scene looked relevant to the topic.
  • Cutaways...  Whilst we where interviewing Amy we asked for permission to film her van that we had interviewed her in including the prices of the cakes that Amy sold.  This helped us to gain relevant cutaways for the answers that we had listened to during the interview, so this would correctly aid want Amy was talking about .
  • Vanessa Green What is it you like about baking? What first got you baking? Who do you make cakes for? Do you make any seasonal novelty cakes? Tell us about them? 5.

  • Vanessa Green  Vanessa bakes cakes as a hobby and in order to convey this we requested to film her inside of her kitchen, where all her baking equipment was on show.  The first time we filmed Vanessa the given answers and the lighting where great. However, the framing wasn’t at am acceptable standard as the camera was on a higher angle than the level at which she was sitting.  The second time filming we interviewed Vanessa in the same location as we had previously. We improved the framing of the shot by having her standing to ensure the camera was at eye-level.  This interview was successful the second time as the answers given where relevant and good, the framing was now correct and the mise-en-scene looked good and relevant to Vanessa and what she was talking about.
  • Vox Pops Questions asked: 1. What's your favourite cake? 2. What's your most memorable cake? 3. How often do you eat cake? At first we tried to film Vox Pops outside a café in New Brighton, however due to poor weather conditions we had to stop filming. Secondly, we chose to film our Vox Pops along a street that had various coffee shops that sold cake. The filming took place out side a café, of which we received permission to do so, in order to have relevant mise-en-scene. We framed our interviewees in a mid-shot and we tried to position them on either the left or right hand side. Due to the street location we had little control over traffic noise and the movement of interviewees.
