  1. Great video, tip. I enjoyed your interview video tips, especially the advice to help your interviewee relax by asking light hearted warm up videos. Pat, any advice about how to create a video interview that is short enough that people will watch the whole thing? What video length do you recommend for interview videos?

    • Hi Becky – Thanks for you questions. The stats show that people don’t generally watch a video that is longer than 3 – 4 minutes so that applies to interviews as well. However, if the subject is really engaging and the discussion is lively, people may watch longer. My advice on how to create a great short video interview is to ask your guest to restate an answer if you noticed that they rambled – sometimes people think while they are answering and so in the restate they can be more succinct and you can edit out the first answer. Thanks for watching.

  2. Hi Pat – great show on interview video tips! All of your 3 tips were very informative and I really like the tip about helping your interviewee relax – that’s a fantastic idea! When doing an interview, should the interviewer and interviewee look at each other or at the camera?

  3. Pat, I could have used these Interview Video Tips before I just did my videos. I will use these for my next interview video on rental properties. Thanks Pat.
