It's All About the Sound Bite
As we turn the corner to a new year, LA turns the corner to the frenzy of Awards Season. From the Academy Awards to the Golden Globes, SAG, DGA, PGA, DGA, and every acronym in between, there will be a red carpet every night of the week until the spring. Now whether you are an actor or someone behind the scenes, it is always a good idea to brush up on your red carpet interview skills. I came across a great article by Jocelyn Broder on Journalistics about "The Importance of Sound Bites". I have harped on this topic over and over on panels and in several articles I have done this year here at Red Carpet Closet: Publicity and Web Series, Red Carpet Interviews....Some DOs and DON'Ts, and Dos and Don'ts on the Red Carpet, The Sequel. Check out the Journalistics article and discover how to create and deliver a sound bite. It also gives some great examples from film and political speeches. Do your career a favor in 2011, make yourself a sought after interview on the red carpet.
Also, I would love your feedback on any of these articles. Do you have questions? What topics do you want to learn more about on the red carpet? I will make sure to bring them to you in 2011 during Awards Season!
