Talking Head Video Producution
Everybody loves a good talking head; but what makes a talking head good?
TAlking head videos: interview technique
It’s not about kit, though our kit is top quality, industry standard, Sony stuff. Chris, our director was a detective in the Police for many years and was an advanced investigative interviewer specialising in serious and organised crime. He’s used to seeing people under stress and putting them at ease – that might sound odd, but the vast majority of the interviewing the Police do are with witnesses and victims or people in the street. Expect to be ‘clocked’ straight away and have your number plate memorised. Well, admittedly that is weird, but you can’t untrain some things.
Interviews aren’t about what happens when the tapes start rolling, but how the interaction begins the moment you walk through the door. It’s about building rapport, using a structured conversation model and really drilling down into the content. Producing talking head videos with us is fun and gets you thinking deeply about how you are communicating. If you can’t explain to a lay person in 30 seconds what you mean, then there is something wrong with your idea. Ever thought how you explain the theory of General Relativity simply? Well, we have. We think if you can make a complicated idea easily understandable, you are on to a winner;
Talking head videos: production process
Talking head video production can be as complex or as simple as you need. The best way to produce a talking head video and the way we like to make them, is to use two cameras, a 3 point lighting rig and a separate microphone over hanging the subject. This means we get the best possible look for you with the best possible sound. Yes – you can do it on an iPhone, but it wont’ be very good to be honest. If we could get away with using iPhones instead of production cameras we would. But you don’t hire us for that. We get hired for quality.
Having two cameras gives you immense editing opportunities to switch between angles and hide cuts. Doing this, we can re order and re craft your messaging to your hearts desire and make sure you say exactly the right thing on your finished product.
