Here are a variety of videos to see how crisp your next talking head video can be.
Attention to: sound, lighting, detail in the image, composition, movement.
Some of these projects were shot completely (including setup and takedown) in less than 2 hours taking less than 15 minutes with the talent – and just a single person camera crew. Some setups included a larger crew and hours to produce. Can you tell which is which?
This project was a half day video shoot where we conducted 3 interviews with a 1 person camera crew and small LED lighting.:
Summary: we do a variety of projects with this client and keep our interviews short and precisely on-point to what we plan on using in the finished 1 minute edited commercial. The client here uses this 1-minute commercial year-round playing on the big movie theater screens in town. Guests love how great it looks on the big movie theater screen since we filmed and edited this in UHD / 4k.
Below this text is a talking head video for an investment manager (2 person crew – half day shoot). The background is actually the natural wall here in our historic studio location. The client wanted to showcase his personality as an educational speaker pitching for a large training contract with a corporation for e-learning. ↲
Real estate agents can have a tough time differentiating themselves from their competitors. That’s why we often help them stand out by telling their story. Here they wanted us to present them in a warm, trustworthy and experienced fashion positioning them as a fun team that can handle that move-up / forever home purchase (often large lakefront properties). We used testimonials to help share things that would sound ego-centric if it were the agent, and used the agent’s speaking to show personality and approachability. This project was filmed across multiple days using a 1 person crew for interviews, 3 additional partial-day shoots for b-roll. ↲
The following project we’ve worked with this client on multiple fundraising campaigns with great success always surpassing their financial goals. This project included 1 full day shoot with 1 filmmaker: ↲
The following video is 1 of the 5 videos we filmed in a half day with 1 camera operator and 1 boom audio operator in an active city park. The goal was to create 5 video modules used inside a travel safety e-learning course shared with customers around the world. ↲
The next project here ↲ showcases what you can do when you have a very limited budget with internal communications in the banking sector (a heavily regulated industry). They knew that a video would be much better received for an update than just text and photos in an email. Since it was an important message getting sent to all of the members of the organization, they worked to keep the script as short as possible while hitting all of their required details. They required the use of a teleprompter to ensure they stayed on script. Filmed with a 1 person crew (and assistant for setup and teardown) in just half a day – with the head talent only in the room for their section of the video saving them valuable time. ↲
