Published on November 28, 2018 at 11:56 pm Contact Eric: [email protected] Comments Sunday night, Syracuse crowded into a film room in the back of Manley Field House to watch itself qualify for the NCAA Division I women’s volleyball tournament for the first time in program history. Senior Amber Witherspoon jumped out of her chair while most other players threw their hands up in celebrations. Many whipped out their phones to take pictures of Syracuse in the bracket on the screen. But Monday, the fun stopped.“It’s a business trip,” senior and All-ACC second team member Witherspoon said. “Ultimately it’s a great memory and it’s great that we can go down in history, but at the end of the day it’s still a business trip, we have to do what we have to do.”Syracuse (18-8, 14-4 Atlantic Coast) will play eight-seeded Yale (19-4, 13-1 Ivy League) at 5 p.m. on Nov. 30, at Penn State, the first of what the Orange is determined to make several tournament games. The winner of Penn State vs. Howard at 7:30 p.m. will play the winner of Syracuse’s game on Dec. 1 at 7 p.m.Laura Angle | Digital Design EditorAdvertisementThis is placeholder textSyracuse, which is 36th in rating percentage index, matches up with Ivy League champions Yale, which rank 41st in RPI. But nothing about SU’s opponent stuck out to Orange head coach Leonid Yelin.“Every team you know who has made the 64 from my previous experience, they are good,” Yelin said. “Otherwise, they wouldn’t make it. Even some people think, ‘Yale is in the Ivy League’ but they are dominating in that league and they are getting a lot of really good players from all over the nation.”The only opponent Yale and Syracuse have had in common this season is New Hampshire. On Aug. 31, Syracuse beat New Hampshire in straight sets 3-0. On Sept. 7, New Hampshire beat Yale 3-1.“You don’t want to have people feel pressure,” Yelin said. “I said, ‘Enjoy this moment, guys. You got it, out of almost 360 teams, you’re there. Be happy. Just go there, lose there, just have fun playing … And whatever happens, happens. But please, you will be able to play the way you know how to play. Don’t think it happens if you’re going to be tight. You’re not going to demonstrate what you’re actually capable of.’”While SU boasts All-ACC first team member senior Santita Ebangwese, the Orange have largely been driven by fellow first team member and ACC Freshman of the Year Polina Shemanova.Shemanova leads the Orange in kills with 425, almost 200 ahead of Ebangwese who has the second most with 237.“As a freshman, this is all new for me but I’m really excited because it’s the first time we made the NCAA tournament,” Shemanova said. “We did our best and it worked.”Despite the historic year for the program, the Orange still enter the tournament as an underdog. In Syracuse’s region alone stands No. 1 Stanford, No. 8 Penn State, No. 9 Creighton and No. 16 Washington State. Ebangwese said the role is something she loves.And for the seniors it’s not about just making the tournament. It’s not even about trying to win one game. The Orange want to prove something about the program and put the team on a path to make the tournament on a consistent basis.“We don’t want to make this just a one time thing, a Cinderella story,” Ebangwese said. “We want to create a legacy.” Facebook Twitter Google+
The tournament will take place on the 25th & 26th of June at the UCD Bowl in Dublin.Ireland will compete alongside Kazahstan, China, Hong Kong, Kenya, Uganda, Zimbabwe, Russia, Spain, Portugal, Mexico, Trinidad & Tobago, Samoa, Cook Islands, Uruguay and Argentina for the final coveted place at the Olympics.

Here are a few helpful questions and tips for conducting interesting, orderly documentary interviews that develop naturally.There is an odd mix of both excitement and terror that comes with starting a documentary project. Whether it’s a short, one-day project or the beginning of a multi-year endeavor, documentaries (by nature) are unpredictable and often tricky. Shooting interviews, in particular, can be difficult.Ideally, a good documentary interview shoot should be a nice balance between pointed, on-topic discussions and open-ended prompts for exploring new themes and questions that pop up. This gets tricky for the shooter, director, or producer who’s asking the questions, as you need to be prepared to keep things on track but also be receptive to new information and directions.For those looking for advice for tackling documentary interviews, and for those who need a starting point for their interviews, we have some advice on finding the right balance for your documentary interview shoots.Basic Documentary Interview QuestionsImage by Haider Y. Abdulla.So, before we give you a list, we need to preface this article by saying that every documentary project is going to be different — sometimes vastly different. In my own experience, I’ve interviewed cowboys, CEOs, Elvis impersonators, and world-famous athletes. And, while there might be a few crossover examples, they’ve all ended up being completely different interviews.The best way to plan is to focus on those opening questions. You can write these out and even rehearse them. These simple, boilerplate questions will not only get you off on the right foot, but they can also help both you and your interviewee get comfortable and settled before you dive into more open-ended questions and conversations.Can you state your name and occupation for the camera?How do you spell your name (and occupation if it’s tricky)?Can you introduce yourself, as if we’ve never met before?Why are you here today?These are basically the first three or four questions I’ve asked at the beginning of every documentary shoot. The first ones are to make sure you have their information correct. You can always review this later to make sure you have all the correct spellings and their exact titles.Basic Information — Who/What/When/Where/WhyImage by Quality Stock Arts.I’ve also found it very helpful to have footage of interviewees introducing themselves to you — or directly to the camera. You can quickly learn about how they view themselves. The “Why are you here today?” question can be another great trick for getting them to talk about some themes they might be interested in exploring during your conversation.Overall, I’ve often tried to start off with a variation of this question (or questions) — “Who are you, what’s going on, and why does that matter?” — as a means to getting the who/what/when/where/why out of the way, early. The more basic information you can get from a documentary interviewee early on the better, as you’ll often need much of this background information when cutting your documentary together.Here are some additional guides for conducting documentary interviews:Interview Tips Every Documentary Filmmaker Should Know7 Reasons Why You Need a Producer for Your DocumentaryInterview: Tips for Blending Documentary and Narrative in “The Drug Runner” Discussion vs. QuestionsImage by Valmedia.Once you’ve gotten your basic information out of the way — and as much expository material as you can get — your real goal is to focus on discussion rather than just asking questions. Avoid “yes” or “no” questions at all costs! Instead, I’ve often found it best to view yourself more as a conversation moderator.In many ways, the idea of “scripting your documentary” becomes more important than the questions. Write out ideas, concepts, events, or themes that you’d like to have your documentary subject touch on, then lead them to those points.At the end of the day, conducting a good documentary interview comes down to just how prepared and knowledgeable you are — as well as how confident you are in the interview. Be an active listener, take good notes, and ask open questions that encourage active responses.Cover image by Valmedia.For more documentary filmmaking advice, as well as practical filmmaking tips and tricks, check out these articles:A Complete Guide to Documentary FilmmakingHow to Shoot Gorgeous Documentary InterviewsDocumentary Editing Tips for Working with Lots of FootageSundance 2019: Tips for Shooting Verité Documentary FootageThe 5 Tenets of Capturing Good B-Roll for Your Documentary
