Filming Casting Interviews
Overhead of Everything
What you are doing
So these are very simple, Goal is to stay out of the way and not interrupt the interview. As long as either the boom or the Lav sounds good do not interrupt (it just throws everything off). The finalist will walk in sit down (hit record as soon as they walk in, media is not a problem), mic them up as they sit down, just to the collar and then set the transmitter on the ground. Go back and frame them up and make sure focus is good.
These are the frames we have been doing:
If someone in the room gets your attention frame in or frame out just do it. If you feel like they look better punched in go ahead. As you can see, we just don’t want shadows ion the backdrop and we want to see there face. If you are going to punch in our out do it when they finish a sentence.
For some reason they tend to look at you when they talk. If you have to yawn, try to do it behind the camera.
IF anyone asks you to make it brighter, or darker, or the backdrop needs to be brighter, just do it. As long as they somewhat look like this it will be good.
