On a recent video project, filming an interview, I had some observers on set who were there to see how I work as they mull over doing a video series of their own. It got me thinking about the client perspective in world where a client can shoot a video interview on anything from their own phone to bringing an outside crew.
In this vlog I take you through my decisions on camera angles through to my opting to use six lights to light the set.
