Have you ever seen one of those videos posted by Vogue, called “73 Questions”? I found them one day while scrolling through Facebook and instantly loved them! Now they are back in the headlines thanks to the newest interview completed, with Taylor Swift. Maybe it is because I love pop culture so much, maybe it is because they feature a lot of celebrities I really enjoy, and I love to know how normal they are, perhaps it is because I love seeing their amazing homes (seriously, AMAZING) maybe it is just a way to pass a quick 5 minutes sometimes. Nevertheless, I would binge watch them often and while watching recently, I figured “hey! Why don’t I try something like that?” Now, of course these are videos, and I can’t seem to get on board yet with the idea of doing Vlogs- I don’t find myself THAT interesting to be able to talk, my own voice would drive me nuts, and I just finally started watching a couple that interest me so I should probably learn a little more before I ever try that. But, because these are videos, it makes it hard to do it in as entertaining of a way as those videos are. However, I am still going to do just for fun!
In these videos, a journalist for Vogue interviews a celebrity and asks 73 questions and films in a single shot, no editing. However, they are not the normal questions that most journalists ask in order to write a story piece. They are super quick interviews, often 5-7 minutes long and they rattle off a question as quick as you can blink, then they get back a short quick answer just as fast. Often this is done while walking around the celebrity’s home, or studio, and usually a person or two or 10 come in and out of showing up answering a question or two also, but keep in mind it is done super quick- you figure 73 questions for a 6 minute video would be like what, barely 5 seconds to ask and answer a question? You learn all kinds of random personal opinions and things about the person and I figured it will be something new and different to try out on here.
To get a real feel for how these usually work, I posted a link to the video below. I would post a video, but I still toy with the idea of if it is worth it to pay monthly for a blog in order to upload videos and do more customization or not. Maybe if I can devote more time to it, it wouldn’t be such a struggle to convince myself!
For my round of questions, I have simply copied and pasted the same questions Reese is asked in her video, with the exception of a couple, as they do not pertain to me since I obviously do not have an Oscar and live in LA. 🙂 Instead, for those that do not apply, I just took a couple from Sarah Jessica Parkers interview to complete the whole 73, as I found the transcripts from that to copy. I am answering in quick short responses as they would as well though, so my goal is to do this in a similar amount of time as the video takes to watch.
