Hey there, my name is Walid Brahim, a 21 year old student in Lyon. And I have been working on a project named Autonomous Interview (A.I. for short) where the main idea is to conduct interviews without the use of a set or an interviewer, rather we just mail 15 (tailored to the artist) questions to the artist and they can film themselves answering them, and send us the interview video where we edit and publish it.
The main reason I want to do this is that I have seen too many repetitive, unauthentic, and sometimes poorly executed interviews online. Where the questions have nothing to do with the craft of the artist, or his/her field, or they are repetitive, or just too personal. Me and a couple of friends have already started working on it, and have landed a few "artists" from different regions, such as the U.S, France, U.A.E, Senegal etc. willing to be interviewed.
For the funding, the funding of 3000 euros would be used for the following :
1. Creating a website.
2. New cameras, lenses, and necessary photography/videography accessories.
3. Photoshop/video editing software licenses.
4. Mail expenses.
5. Marketing and R&D.
6. And hopefully renting out an office.
A media company like no other.
