For today’s high definition productions, the quality of interview lighting and the overall “look” of the setup is more critical than ever. Regardless of your budget, what type of camera you use, what kind of video you’re shooting, or how much time you have to set up, there’s really no excuse for not consistently shooting great looking interviews.
And once you’ve mastered the fundamentals of shooting interviews, you can carry those skills over into any production environment because the basic principles of good lighting are universal.
But shooting great-looking interviews is NOT just about lighting. Lighting is only one piece of the puzzle. This 90-minute instructional DVD has been produced by well-known instructor, Doug Jensen, to teach anyone how to use camera placement, lighting, composition, depth-of-field, exposure, and white balance to create great-looking interviews.
Believe it or not, the lighting equipment choices available for professional TV/video production have changed quite a bit in recent years -- and both tungsten and fluorescent instruments are on their way out for lighting interviews.
LED lights are the future because they simply offer too many benefits to ignore. A 100% LED light kit will allow you to work faster and more efficiently, haul around less gear, save energy, create less waste for the environment, run completely on batteries, and reduce heat on the talent to practically zero! And on top of those benefits, you’re still going to be able to get excellent results – even better than what you could do with tungsten or fluorescent. As you’ll learn in the DVD, lighting interviews with 100% LED lighting is not only possible, it is rapidly becoming the preferred for choice for high-end shooters.
This instructional DVD will show you what you need, what you do NOT need, and how to bring all the elements of shooting interviews together to achieve excellent results. Once you’ve made the switch to LED, it will be impossible to imagine ever using tungsten lights for interviews again.
