How do you make the right choices about camera placement, lighting and most importantly working with talent to get the best interviews possible?
This full day workshop (with a meet & greet the night before), will focus on best practices when lighting, shooting and conducting interviews. It will discuss and demonstrate certain “rules” that can be followed to help you consistently shoot great looking, great sounding and natural interviews.
Topics for this one day workshop will include lighting set ups, working with large and small sensor cameras, lens choices, two camera set ups, camera movement, metering for repeatability, lighting control, audio recording and working with and successfully conducting interviews with talent. It will include live demonstrations of various equipment and set ups along with hands-on audience participation.
The work shop is intended for producers, aspiring filmmakers, camera operators and anyone interested in shooting effective and great looking interviews.
