  • Work, work, work
  • What is it about?

    Have you ever though about what you want to be when you grow up? Have you ever wondered what you Mum, Dad, Family and Family Friends do in their jobs? Some jobs can be very difficult; others very dangerous and others might take you to all sorts of interesting parts of the world. There are jobs that help other people, jobs that entertain other people and jobs that make things that everyone can use. Now is your chance to discover more about what people in your family do and to make a fun film about them and their job and share it with the world and who knows? Maybe you’ll inspire someone to follow in their footsteps, or maybe you’ll find the perfect job for yourself!

  • How do I take part?

    OK, so first of all you will need to think about who you are going to interview. It’s probably best to make a list of people in your family and the jobs they do and then decide on who you think will be best (you can always interview more than one person).

    Then you will need to think of a list of questions, what would you like to know about the job? What does the job entail? And what makes it really great to do! Remember you might already know a bit about what your interviewee does so you will have to cover the basics too so that everyone else watching can catch up…

    Now’s the tricky bit, “Lights, camera, action!”. Think about where you are going to do the interview, make sure there’s enough light to see the stars of the show but not too much that its TOOOO bright. You also need to think about sound, make sure there’s not too much noise around you so you don’t have to shout. You will also need to think about whether you are going to film the interview yourself or get someone to help you so you can be on camera too.

    Now all that’s left is recording the interview. Ask your interviewee all your questions and then send us your videos. We’ll take care of everything else!

    Remember you’ll need your parent’ s permission first!

  • Chook tips

    You can use any camera you like, but it’s better to use one that has a memory card. You can even use a smartphone but make sure it’s turned portrait ways! You might also want to use a tripod to keep the camera steady. Think long and hard about a fun question, hopefully ones that will get your interviewees talking a lot. Smile for the camera! Here are some ideas to get those brain cogs turning puk puuuuk!

Ask them to share their stories with you and then you can share them with everyone on Not Just TV!

  • How do I take part?

    OK, so first of all you will need to talk to your grandparents and ask them if they are happy to help you. If they don’t say yes strait away then you could try baking them a cake, painting them a picture or promising you’ll be good FOREEEEVVVEEEEERRRRR and see if that convinces them…

    Then you will need to think of a list of questions, what would have been different, what didn’t they have that you have, and what did they have and do that you don’t? Think about where they lived. Their school and how that was different. What were their parents like with them and for that matter what was school like and who were they friends with? Where did they go on holidays and what did they do before mobile phones and the internet???

    Now’s the tricky bit, “Lights, camera, action!”. Think about where you are going to do the interview, make sure there’s enough light to see the stars of the show but not too much that its TOOOO bright. You also need to think about sound, make sure there’s not too much noise around you so you don’t have to shout. You will also need to think about whether you are going to film the interview yourself or get someone to help you so you can be on camera too.

    Now all that’s left is recording the interview. Ask your interviewee all your questions and then send us your videos. We’ll take care of everything else!
