I'm working on creating a TV talk-show that is centered around talking about tough, personal, or "taboo" topics and experiences.
The show is going to be called TabouTalk (pronounced "taboo").
The goal of the show is to make people more comfortable talking about experiences or topics that they felt they couldn't talk about, but want or need to. My ultimate hope is that the show could help people talk to each other more about what's bothering them, what they're going through, or is on their mind in a more open and empathetic manner.
When: early November; exact date TBD
Location: the interviews will be held in public areas around Santa Monica (e.g. parks, beach, pier, etc.)
Length: the interviews will last 15-60 mins.
Compensation: you will be paid $25 cash in-person after the interview, regardless of the length of the interview (minimum of 15 mins, maximum of 60 mins).
Filming: the interviews will be filmed using a GoPro and/or iPhone - a very minimalistic setup.
Personal Release Form: I will need each interviewee to sign a personal release form in-person (which I will provide) before starting the interview, in order for us to be able to use the footage.
If you'd like to be interviewed, please email ONE paragraph about a personal situation or experience that you'd want to talk about on camera. Examples: could be about a past relationship, a travel or work experience, or a personal challenge that you had to deal with.
If I was interviewing myself, one thing I'd want to talk about is my journey toward losing weight.
