Short Promotional Piece for Adam Forgione Workshops

When capturing interviews lighting, lens selection, microphone, talent and camera placement are so important to the final feel of the captured interview. For the interview in this piece we wanted to give the viewer the same relaxed feeling they would have when talking with Adam face to face. We purposely used a lens that would help to soften the background, allowing Adam to stand out against a somewhat busy background pattern.

We positioned the talent so that he would be 3/4 lit by natural light coming in from a window to his left, but keeping the ratio of light from left to right at almost 2:1.5. This helps to give a bit more dimension to the subject, without putting his face into shadow.

Sound was captured using a Sony wireless LAV system into a 4-track recorder, while a second mic on camera helped to capture the audio for later syncing.
