irst we began in a nice air-conditioned building, filming a wonderful interview of the manager, Chuck. The set-up was quick and simple; a light-stand in the back and front then the camera was positioned directly in front of the talent. It was odd to see the overhead lights turned off and observe what remained. There was key and fill lighting made by the artificial light then the background was illuminated by natural lighting. A typical three-point lighting set-up. The talent was a little on edge although he was able to pull through and demonstrate how professional yet suitable his company is. I was impressed with his incognito enthusiasm to John’s questions. If I wanted to promote my company, this guy was definitely the one to put in front of the cameras.
All in all the shoot ran perfectly, the lighting was spectacular, the talent cooperated well with the crew, and it turned out to be a fun day! I would say this was a well-furbished green lawn shoot for Christensen Media. Stay tuned for more adventures.
