When creating a 1-2 minute video, you won't need to ask this many questions. Explore, play, create and you'll discover what questions help you to light up on video and let authenticity shine through. It's fun to do these unrehearsed too, to really get organic 'in the moment' responses.
Select the questions that speak to you the most and that are relevant to the kind of video(s) you are creating! Don't be shy to make up your own questions or brainstorm ideas with the team!
Make learning fun! Make your videos engaging. Be authentic!
