Recently, my partners at PTZOptics and I headed over to WCHE radio in West Chester, Pa., to produce a live video stream as part of a special mid-day broadcast. We wanted to demonstrate live video streaming as a powerful tool to engage with the radio station’s current listening audience. During our broadcast, we live streamed to Facebook, LinkedIN, Twitter, Twitch and YouTube.
Recording Professional Video Interviews
In today’s episode of Back to Basics, we go over professional techniques for setting up cameras to shoot video interviews. Video interviews are great for both recorded and live streaming applications. Whether you are recording an exciting collaboration project or discussing a new project launch with your company CEO, video interviews can bring to life almost any conversation. This video tutorial reviews camera placement, lighting and tips for creating amazing video interviews.
When you are shooting a professional interview on video you should consider how many cameras angles you will need to provide the viewers an engaging experience. If you only have one camera than perhaps you could add a second PTZ (pan, tilt and zoom) camera. PTZ cameras can actually look like multiple cameras as they move between preset positions allowing producers to frame subjects in view before transitioning to a new live take. In this presentation, we review the classic 3 & 5 camera video interview setups.
