Experts lend huge respect to projects and their advice can be priceless. Here are some tips for getting the most out of the time they donate to your challenge.

  1. 1. Know what you want from them before you email, call or Skype them.

  2. 2. Record your conversations and interview with them when possible (with their permission). This allows you to review the conversation and maybe even use the interview or parts of it in your final product videos.

  3. 3. Contact them politely and ask if they have the time to help you with your work.

  4. 4. Get their credentials so that their background can serve to bring respect to your collaborative efforts.

  5. 5. Thank them for their time and expertise.
