I have heard this topic arise multiple times when filming an interview in Orlando. What should my interviewee wear? What questions do we ask? What background should be behind them? The list goes on… When filming an interview for your organization, you should consider the following on your next Orlando Video Production.
1) What should my interviewee wear? It’s really a preference, but I prefer darker clothing for higher contrast in color and women not to wear dresses, as it will be hard to mic up your interviewee. Unless you are using a boom mic, then you will be in good shape.
2) What background should behind them? When considering a background, try to make the production relevant to the project and/or person of where they work, etc. For example: If you producing an Orlando video production project with a doctor with series of questions you will be interviewing, then have the doctor in place and keep the office environment behind him/her. That could include lobby, patient room if it’s large enough, exam room, etc. Just remember to keep it relevant. If all fails with your Orlando video production, then use a backdrop such as white or black.
Here is an example of a recent commercial our Orlando Video Production Company produced for Florida Hospital. This is not an interview, but we utilize a black backdrop so you can see how the background could look on your production.
3) What questions do we ask? The kind and amount of questions all determine of your final message on your project. Typically you would like to ask a dozen of questions that relate to your message. For example: What is your full name with title and organization? When running your day-to-day process on the new product, how does this affect your job now? Note: When asking these questions, be sure to tell your interviewee to recap the question in their answer because when you edit your video, you will not hear your voice and/or question being asked.
Here is another commercial example our Orlando video production company produced for Mid Florida Cancer Center that uses interview questions to compile a: 60 television commercial.
