Sponsored: Total Film in Cannes interviews and beyond

When Total Film was at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival, interviews were a top priority.

Some of the world's biggest stars congregate around the Croisette for the first reveal of their upcoming films, so it's the perfect time to grab material for magazine features.

But it takes some planning. Not only do you have to be on your toes when it comes to arranging the interviews with the publicists (spots are often secured at the last moment), you also have to schedule in screenings to make sure you’ve actually seen the films in question before the interviews happen.

Plus, when you're out in a photogenic festival like Cannes, it's essential to capture some video footage for the website, to provide an up-to-the-minute glimpse of the very latest red carpet action. And, if you do find yourself with a rare bit of downtime, you'll probably want to make a Skype call home – either to liaise with the UK team, or to catch up with your family (you are away for the best part of two weeks, after all).

Luckily, this year we went out with the HP Spectre x360 – able to switch effortlessly between laptop, tablet and variations in between, it's got every outcome covered. Whether you're editing video, typing a review or calling home, you have every situation covered, and it's light enough to have with you whenever you need it.
