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.
We recently completed virtual event design, planning, pre-production and live-stream production for Access for All 2020. Structured with a mix of live and asynchronous activities across 2 weeks in October, AfA2020 was a virtual conference dedicated to using plain language to break down barriers in society, improve the criminal justice system, protect the rights of vulnerable populations and affect the outcome of COVID-19.
Access for All is a nonprofit working to improve people's access to information and services with plain language.
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.
Q: What are the most important things to take into consideration while shooting an interview?
A: The biggest thing is what's in the frame, how the person looks and what they're in front of.
What can one of our clients, a person walking into the office or a partnering company expect from MessageMakers?
