  • 2. Cooking teacher (After school classes) 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. How long have you been teaching people to cook? Do you do a lot of baking at home? Were cakes and baking a big part of your childhood? What is your favourite cake to make? Why do you think people enjoy baking so much? Do you think cakes are an important part of our society? Did you always know you wanted a career to do with cooking/baking? What do you believe is different about British cakes and cakes from other cultures? What tips would you give people if they were going to start baking for the first time?
  • 3. Cooking teacher (After school classes) For this interview we filmed at the cake decorating classes. We filmed the teacher at this location in order to maintain natural mise-en-scene. This interview was a success, but we will not be using this interview in our documentary due to the similarity with another interview.
  • 4. Cutaways... Whilst we where interviewing the after school cooking teacher we asked for permission from the students before hand to film them decorating their cakes. This helped us to gain relevant cutaways for the answers that where given from this interview.
  • 5. Cooking Teachers 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. How long have you been teaching food technology? Do you bake cakes outside of school? If so what type of cakes do you make? What valuable skills do you think you can gain from baking? Do you teach students to bake cakes for different dietary requirements? If so what specific types of recipes do you teach for this? Do you think young students enjoy baking cakes more than other foods? Are there more types of cakes being baked in school compared to a couple of years ago? Do you teach students to bake a wide variety of cakes from different cultures? If so what cultures do you teach the most of? Given the increased awareness of cake baking thanks to programmes like the Great British Bake off and The Cake Boss, do you think we will see more time spent on cooking/baking lessons in school? Do you think students see cake baking as an older persons activity rather than something quite trendy?
  • 6. Cooking Teacher For this interview we interviewed Mrs OHea after lesson time in her classroom in order to maintain natural mise-en-scene then we where able to add baked cakes into the background to keep it related to the topic. This interview was successful the first time as the answers given where relevant and good, the framing was correct and the miseen-scene was good.
  • 7. Cameo Cake Craft 1. You have had over 25 years experience in cake design, why did you start decorating cakes? 2. How many cakes do you decorate a week? 3. What has been your most unusual/ crazy request? 4. Do people tend to go for more traditional designs or more individual designs specifically of them? 5. What is the most popular occasion you cater for? 6. Have you seen any growing trends in the designs people are requesting? 7. Would you consider cake decorating an art and a skill, why? 8. Whats your favourite thing about decorating cakes? 9. Whats the most anyone has ever paid for a cake to be designed? What was it for? 10. Do you think that designs people are asking for have been influences by TV shows about cakes? 11. Do you use any ingredients in cakes that might surprise people?
  • 8. Cameo Cake Craft (Norma) We firstly filmed this interview with Norma in her own cake decorating shop, and from this we were able to receive a higher quality mise-en-scene and the answers that where given where great. However, Normas glasses had a reflection in the lenses which comprised the quality of the overall shot. On our requested second attempt we asked if the glasses could be taken away, to which Norma agreed as they weren't a necessity, this enabled us to gain a better shot. This interview was successful the second time as the answers given where relevant and good, the framing was correct and the mise-en-scene was great.
  • 9. Cutaways... Whilst we where interviewing Norma at Cameo Cake Craft we asked for permission to film the cakes that she had displayed around the shop. This helped us to gain relevant cutaways for the answers that we had listened to during the interview, so this would correctly aid want Norma was talking about .
  • 10. Becky Elliot (Dietary Requirements) How long have not been able to have wheat? How has this affected your diet? Are there specific cakes made for your wheat allergy? Have you seen more variety in the cakes that are specifically made for allergies? 5. Do you think specialised dietary cakes have become more accessible over recent years? 6. In your opinion do cakes made without wheat taste different to cakes with wheat? 7. On celebrations such as birthdays, what do you have as a substitute for cake? 8. Where do you buy your cakes, if you have them? 9. Do you bake your own cakes? If so what do you bake? 10. Do you find that a lot of bakers dont cater for your allergy? 11. Does this allergy make it more challenging to do out socially? 1. 2. 3. 4.
  • 11. Becky Elliot (Dietary Requirements) We filmed Becky Elliot in her working environment as this was the only available location. This compromised the overall miseen-scene, but to correct this we made sure relevant cutaways where filmed to add along. The answers that where given are mostly usable, as in some answers the questions wasn't always clear in the answer. Other than this the framing was good and the interview was usable.
  • 12. Marge Magee (Diabetic) 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. Where cakes a big part of your childhood? When did you first found out you were diabetic? Did you eat allot of cakes before you became diabetic? Are you able to eat cakes? If yes what do you have to do in order to do this? (If yes to 3) Do you choose to eat cakes? Why? Does not eating cakes change the way you celebrate for e.g. birthdays? If you could eat as many cakes as you could for one day what would you have? When your children were growing up would you be okay with them eating cake?
  • 13. Marge Magee (Diabetic) We filmed Marge Magee at her home, as we wanted her in a natural home environment as she couldnt be around cakes talking about why Marge couldn't eat cakes as this would contradict her topic. The only issue that had risen was that the lighting was slightly too dark, but it was commented that it gave it a homely feel which would benefit the interview as long as there was relevant cutaways to aid the interviews topic. The answers that where given are good and the framing was correct and the interview was usable.
  • 14. Cutaways... To help improve this section of the documentary where dietary requirements were disused, we asked Sainsburys if we could film their Free Form range as it featured products such as: gluten free, wheat free and sugar free.

  • 16. Dodgshons Bakery We filmed inside the bakery and interviewed the owner Ian. We firstly filmed him upstairs where the office was located, as it was busy in the shop, and the answers he gave where great. However, once we watched the interview back we realised that the mise-en-scene was poor and didn't reflect the documentary. We then returned to Dodgsh
