Audience Insights

This week I shall be filming an in-house BBC auidence insight event.

The day will consist of following four teams who are taking part in a flash mob in different locations. There are four crews following the four flash mob teams. After a morning of observational filming, we’ll be at a question and answer session with some big names in BBC.

The first bit of filming will be done with a z5 and monopod.

This is the monopod I use when filming

I always tend to use a monopod to counteract the camera. I know there’s other better devices for such a deed but for me, the monopod technique works really well and I always stand by the idea of maknig equpiment work for you. That’s why it’s invented after all!

I’ve been working closely with the event organiser and the afternoon session will be filmed by three static cameras and one roaming; a lot like a stage show such as stand up or theatre productions.

It’ll be a good day, allowing me to use the Z5 again. I have also put my alarm on to remind me to TAKE PICTURES!
