Interview Video Filming Reference 1
This video is reminding everyone how important having insurance is. No matter how healthy you are in your diet or how active you are in your daily lifestyle, there may be unforeseen circumstances which come in your way in the future which we are all not prepared for.
With this heartwarming reminder video, the shots used in this video are very well set-up. With the minimalist background, it looks very neat and professional. The fact that the main character is looking away from the camera looks like she is expressing her stories not in a direct manner but in a way that creates an emotional detachment from the audience and the subject matter.
Followed with slow motion B-Rolls of what she does on her daily basis to create suspense in the first half of the video and for the second half enable to portray events clearly. Covering up with montages of her during her chemotherapy to show audiences what she went through. To make it more emotional during the start of the video, the background music was suitable as it was a slow intense piano music piece as it builds up to a more reassuring music to give a good ending of the story.
Interview Video Filming Reference 2
Like the previous video, this is an interview video that will touch the audience heart with emotions starting the video off with a financial advisor breaking down and wiping off tears making the audience question themselves on why she is crying and compensating with the background music which was a mix of grief and hope at the same time.
All B-Rolls used here are in slow motion and as you can see the scenes here look very soft making it look very cinematic. The lighting was set minimally to make it look dark and moody as to draw attention to serious subject matter or emotional side to the story. With a combination of close-shots (eg, hands, ecu of facial expressions etc) will add emotions to a scene. Finishing off the video with some motivational quotes on helping others, giving the video a peaceful ending.
Camera Equipment for Interview Video Filming
In the videos above, we used Sony A7S III as our go-to camera when it comes to shooting interview videos like these. We usually shoot at 4K 50fps to get those slow-motion shots and with a colour profile of PP11 as so to give a cinematic look and it is also easier to colour grade in post production. For those outdoor B-Rolls, we attached the Sony A7S III to a DJI RS2 gimbal to create a smoother shot transition.
Sound Equipment for Interview Video Filming
To produce top-notch sound recordings, we use a Zoom H6 Recorder and a Sennheiser Wireless Lav Microphone. The lav microphone is usually hidden under clothing for a professional appearance, and is secured with skin tape to avoid rustling sounds from clothing. Additionally, we have a RODE Blimp Windshield mounted on a boom microphone above the subject as a backup in case of any problems with the main lav microphone.
Lighting Equipment for Interview Video Filming
As a production company, the lighting we used are Nanlite FS-300, Nanlite Forza 300, Nanlite PavoTubes, Aladdin Bi-Frabric 2 and Nanlite Forza 60. Those are all great lighting options for interview videos. The Nanlite FS-300, Nanlite Forza 300 are all LED panel lights that provide a high-quality, consistent light source. The Nanlite PavoTube is a portable, LED light that can be used to illuminate backgrounds with different colors. The tube design allows for easy placement and flexible lighting setups. The Aladdin Bi-Frabric 2 is a softbox that can be used to diffuse the light from the LED panels and create a more natural, flattering look for the subjects. The Nanlite Forza 60 is a compact and portable LED light that can be used as a fill light or for backlighting. Together, these lights will give you a wide range of lighting options and the ability to create a professional-looking interview set up.
Explanatory for Interview Video Filming Reference 1
For this female portion, we decided to go for spatial lighting to make it seem like it was the natural source of light coming from the window. On the right side of her face, it was mildly lighted as we put a reflector below her so it would not look so dull. It can help to create a sense of realism and immersion in a scene, and is used to direct the viewer’s attention and convey mood and atmosphere. For the male portion, we decided to go for rembrandt lighting to look both dramatic yet natural. It is characterised by a small, triangular highlight on the subject’s cheek that is created by a light source placed at a 45 degree angle from the camera. The highlight is created by the light hitting the subject’s cheekbone and is typically associated with a sense of drama and moodiness.
Explanatory for Interview Video Filming Reference 2
Being the opposite of high key, low key lighting for a scene would mean a lot of shadows and possibly just one strong key light source. The focus is on the use of shadows and how it creates mystery, suspense, or drama for a scene and character instead of on the use of lighting, which makes it great for horror and thriller films but in this case we decided to do a low-key lighting as death is a very dark topic and we want to have an emotional connection with the audience.
Interview Filming Crew at Your Singapore Office
When filming at your office, or your client’s office, our interview filming crew take special note of the following.
- Making sure we have the necessary permission to film at the client’s office. This may involve getting approval from the client and possibly other individuals or departments within the organisation
- Coordinate with the client to arrange for access to the office, electricity, and any other resources we may need during the shoot. We also have to consider factors such as parking and where to set up our equipment.
- Discussing with the client how they would like the office to be portrayed in the filming. This may involve moving or hiding certain furnishings, or tidying up the space.
- If we are filming while the office is in operation, we try to inform the employees in advance and to respect their space.
- Having a clear plan for the shoot and making sure everyone involved is aware of the plan, will help the filming go smoothly and ensure that we get the footage we need.

You May Need: Teleprompter
You might want to consider adding a teleprompter into your package as it allows the presenter to keep eye contact with the audience while reading the text they need to speak. Using a teleprompter also allows the reader to sound impromptu without the need to cram what they’re going to say. You may ask, why should we need a teleprompter? Well, a teleprompter is a great tool that allows you to say the right thing at the right time. You don’t have to worry about what you’re going to say or when to say it. Using it can enhance the quality and engagement of your videos and make them more impactful. In this case, even when the main character isn’t looking towards the camera, they can still use the teleprompter, placing it to whichever direction they are looking at. So which means, an additional team crew member will have to control the speed of the script through another device.
You May Need: Filming of B-Rolls
Variety is key. Alternating from the talking-head interview to footage of the person in their environment not only makes things more visually interesting but can help connect your audience with your subject further. Close-up shots of relevant objects can illustrate important details in an environment or situation that can help you tell the story. By the end of the interview, you will know which topics are covered in the interview and can be more strategic in capturing relevant footage. For example, if a man mentions his partner and kids — be sure to get shots of his family or get footage of their family photos.
