Our guest blogger, Michelle Zeller, has sent us her first dispatch from Los Angeles, where she's preparing to interview pro snowboarder Shaun White at his game's launch party tonight. Here's Michelle...
So right now I am in the Renaissance Hollywood hotel and spa (amazing by the way, thanks MTV!) right by the Hollywood strip. I met with Patrick last night who gave me the video camera I will use to take photos and video of the party.
Patrick has informed me that MTV is not sure how much actual time I will have to interview with Shaun White which has now become my biggest challenge.
I am a little nervous and worried since the interview is going to be anywhere from 5 to 15 minutes. I have conducted thorough research of the game and have come up with a list of extensive questions. Now the difficult part is to decide which questions I will ask depending on how much time I will have with Shaun.
It is frustrating to have to choose only a few good questions from my list because I feel like I must cater to the video gaming community as well as the snowboarding community; but I also want to have time to ask personal questions for myself! This is a once in a lifetime opportunity! But I still want to prove I'm the perfect person for the job and make this a good blog. Looks like I'm gonna have to trust my instinct!
Wish me luck!
