The open event in High Town was an opportunity to publicise ‘Chewing the Cud’ and its significance within the community. Hereford’s retail market takes place on Wednesday and many of the traders used to work in the old livestock market so we had a chance to talk to them and interview on location. Compared to Friday’s session the interview style was extremely different and therefore very beneficial, widened my knowledge of alternative styles and techniques. The interviews took place in the style of a vox pop, a tool used to hear the “voice of the people”. We approached the stalls of our interviewees telling them about the project and if they would be happy to participate in the project. Due to the style of these interviews we had to understand that our interviewees may be generally more nervous as they didn’t have time to prepare so it was important to make them feel comfortable and our team was great at doing this. I learnt that unlike the staged interviews you could not control aspects such as change in light and noise so you had to do the best with what you had so using my own initiative was a necessity. I was shown how to carry the camera using the shoulder mount and had the opportunity to test this out. The project as a whole is really interesting. I’m really enjoying listening to individuals who are willing to share aspects of their lives and memories as I worked in the role of camera operator. Additionally we also captured long shots of the busy high street to give the documentary as a whole context when talking about market traders.
