At the heart of most documentaries is a well-executed interview. Good lighting and clean audio can elevate a film’s production value while a poorly lit and inaudible interview can spoil a promising story. In this workshop, we’ll show you the professional techniques to make your interviews look and sound their best. We’ll also cover composition, 3-point lighting, mic placement, and making sure you get good coverage. Strongly recommended for DIY Documentary students.
