Marc Pachter : The art of the interview
Marc Pachter has conducted live interviews with some of the most intriguing characters in recent American history as part of a remarkable series created for the Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery. He reveals the secret to a great interview and shares extraordinary stories of talking with Steve Martin, Clare Booth Luce and more.
My grandfather left us in 1989. So in terms of this video as reference, I need to bring out my grandfather's character as a father, pioneer, friend, leader. Do I want my interviewees to be empathetic; that's something I need to ponder over. Hopefully it wont be.
