At Creative Inside Out, I share the real stories of successful creative professionals from film, writing, music and other industries. Stories of creative life. Not your personal life. We all know how hard it is to trust in this media-frenzied, twist-this-into-that, print-lies world.
Not here. I don’t know you. You don’t know me. So it’s important to me that you feel comfortable and safe.
And to help achieve that, I have some simple rules.
Before the Interview:
- You and/or your agent will be provided a signed Confidentiality Form that blatantly states that NOTHING you disclose or share in an interview or off-the-record with me will be published on this blog or in any other media without your prior written permission.
- You will be sent a list of the kind of questions that will be asked.
- You will not be asked any question about your non-creative private life, with the exception of how being a parent (if applicable) effects your creative work.
- Interviews will be off-camera, one-on-one with me, by phone, in person or by email, at your convenience. You will NOT be photographed.
- Following the interview, you will be emailed a draft of the article, you will request any changes/corrections you wish, and upon your final approval (done verbally via email), the article will be published solely on this blog.
- I will NOT sell your article to a third party publication. (I request that written permission be obtained from any third party wishing to reprint my blog articles.)
- I will NOT disclose your personal contact information with a third party.
I also have one major rule that I follow (did even in my AP days): a person’s story is not just a story. It’s their life.
The public doesn’t have the right to know.
