It’s been almost a week since my last post and I apologise for that. With a weekend shoot, a birthday and an illness to contend with, my blog unfortunately took a back seat.
Shame on me!
Where was I up to….
Both Tommy and Lizzie were lovely and really helpful. They had clearly been filmed a lot in recent weeks, as they didn’t have to be told twice about putting a question in the answer.
I did have to ask Tommy to repeat one question, as I realised I hadn’t framed the DG logo out correctly. He was fine to do that and it meant I didn’t have to spend hours blurring it out in post production.
I shot it on Z1 and used dedo for catching the interesting brickwork in the background. The actual room was well lit with natural light because it had large windows.
I sat the two interviewees facing slightly away from the windows so they were softly lit.
Once the interviews were done, I went back to the office and edited the footage together using AVID. By the end of the day the interviews were ready to be viewed online.
It was an interesting difference to the day I was about to have, filming for Dragons’ Den Online using a DSR 450 camera.
Ahh back to the big boys! How I’ve missed those cameras…
