TASK

In groups of 2-3 people, come up with an idea for a vox pop. You will need to do some research before your write your questions.

If we were doing vox pops on the street, each person would have a role e.g. interviewer, videographer, sound person, talent scout. Under COVID restrictions we’ll take it in turns to ask and answer questions in our Zoom room.

This is just a practice session – for the vox pop section of your assessment, we’ll record all the questions and answers 🤓 Both today and the assessment day are designed just to give you an idea of how vox pops work, and you’re among friends. So have fun!
