  1. 1. The Codes and Conventions of Interviews<br />
  2. 2. The interviewee if conventionally placed left or right of the frame.<br />Interviewees filmed in close up, medium close up or mid shot.<br />
  3. 3. The background will conventionally have content of which relates to the interviewee, this helps to anchor their relevance.<br />1. Interviewee looks at interviewer, not the camera. 2.They are always sat down.3. The interviewer is also placed as close to the camera as can be.<br />
  4. 4. In order to break up interviews, to illustrate the topic and to avoid jump outs in editing, cutaways are edited in. These are archive footage.<br />Eye line of interviewing follows the rule of thirds as it is a third of the way down the screen.<br />
  5. 5. Low key lighting is used and will come only from behind the camera or in front of the interviewee, to prevent the interviewee being blackened out.<br />In the case that the any light does come from behind, it will be covered up.<br />
  6. 6. The graphics are conventionally in a white sans serif font, as this is easy to read. These are also on the side opposite to the interviewee.<br />There are also some conventions that cannot be matched with an image as they are not visual:Although music is rare, when it is used it has a significant meaning and relation.The questions are edited out so you just get the answers. As a result of this, the question is reworded in the response.<br />
