During the pandemic, we have tried to do as much as we can remotely to keep our crew and clients safe. However, there are times that require an in-person shoot in the studio or off-site. To minimize exposure, we've scaled down to a "skeleton crew" which means only the essential crew is on set.
MessageMakers Video Producer and Director of Photography, Rob Sumbler, recently got back from a two week shoot in Montana with the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS). He was there highlighting different programs within the Environmental Quality Incentive Program (EQIP) that the NRCS does in order to help landowners make improvements to their land in the name of conservation.
We interviewed our video producer and director of photography, Rob Sumbler, to ask for some of his tips and tricks for good production during an interview style video.
