Event and Interview Video Example

Event and Interview Video Example

We were hired to film and edit a unique event and interview video for Jennifer Walker. She has a circus act consisting of 6 trained zebras performing for ‘children of all ages’. Parents generally take their children to see this unique show. Based in Florida, she travels throughout the country performing her act.

Jennifer’s Zebra Act

We filmed this with only one camera, as the budget was small. We filmed her interview first and then filmed the event. For post production we included an animated title and interspersed the interview and event footage with Jennifer’s voice over. Editing cut-aways along with voice over of the interviewee is an effective way to mix things up and create variety in the video.

Cutaways Enhance Any Video Production

As I’ve mentioned in other videos, b-roll or cutaways are the best way to liven up an interview. Depending on the nature of your video, charts, graphs, and graphics are also good additions to not only create visual interest, but to convey important information to the viewing audience.

On-screen text is another way to create ‘eye candy’. This not only supplements and break ups just seeing a ‘talking head’, but can convey information and accentuate what the speaker is saying. Animated text, combined with appropriate video transitions, are perfect additions to any video. This is especially true with an video interview.

Here is the finished promotional video we produced for Jennifer:
