In producing corporate and business videos, it is often necessary to shoot interviews with the business owner or other principals. Since this element is such an important part of the video, we are constantly developing new ways to keep our client interviews looking fresh and engaging.
For a recent video series with Dallas Neurosurgical and Spine, we – along with creative director Kim Brayton – decided to shoot the surgeon interviews with two cameras. We positioned one in front and one on the side. The side camera was mounted on slider to add dimensional back and forth motion. Both cameras were Canon c100 cinema cameras.
Besides looking very cool, this method gives the editor many more options in how to craft the final video.
