Another DSLR interview shoot

I’ve been having a very busy yet interesting and fun week shooting interviews at the University of East Anglia in Norwich. Over the past 2 weeks I’ve shot around twenty interviews as well as a lot of cut-away material which will be used at the editing stage.

The shoots have all been done as per my DSLR Interview workflow post, the only thing I’ve changed over the last couple of days is that I’ve been using both cameras without rails, matte-boxes and follow focus. Because I’m having to move around a lot I’ve been trying to keep my cases as light as possible so anything not essential had to go.

Here’s a quick snap I took on the iPhone today and a screen grab from each camera. The Camera on the left is a Glidetrack mounted Canon 7D fitted with a 35mm 1.4 lens & Rode videomic. The Canon 5D mark II is on the right mounted on my Miller DS20 tripod and fitted with a Canon 70-200 2.8, Rode videomic and LCDVF.

I recorded audio using a Sony ECM-77 lav mic running into a UWP-V1 wireless kit and recorded on my Zoom H4n.

    Thanks Paul, always interesting to see your work and the detailed information you write about it is very helpful.

    Quick question, is there a way to select a folder for a FCP project other than its default scratch disk folder to transfer the 5D footage in to when using the canon E1 transfer software?

    Thanks for the detailed equipment list. Always looking for what others use on location and considering how I can improve what I’m doing both equipment and process-wise.

    best wishes,
